David Rowe

Enter, stranger! David Rowe is the man behind the artwork of TV show Knightmare – a much loved show of the 1980s and early 1990s. There was a high reliance on an incredible visual style alongside its pioneering use of computer technology in Knightmare – making it the dream of children to star in the show. In addition to David’s work on Knightmare, David is also very well known for his book and magazine covers and is particularly respected for his influential computer game box art, having illustrated well-loved titles such as Ant Attack, Populous and the original John Madden American Football.

It was the dream of children up and down the country to place the Helmet of Justice upon their head, and make their way into Knightmare Castle as an intrepid dungeoneer. The success of Knightmare relied on the incredible visual style and its pioneering use of computer technology. This fantastic collection constitutes all of David’s surviving artwork from the landmark series and is sure to transport any nostalgic fan right back into Treguard of Dunshelm’s antechamber.
