About Thomas Jones

What up y'aaall! When I'm not writing articles for Pure Nintendo, I'm a Graphic Designer and Illustrator who loves to create video game artwork. I hail from England but am currently fighting trolls and searching for dragon gold in Middle Earth, New Zealand. My favourite franchise is The Legend of Zelda but I'm also a huge Pokémon, Final Fantasy, Resident Evil and Metal Gear Solid fan but play just about anything. I also like to collect Nintendo consoles, games and trinkets.
