This is a concept drawing for Silversword (Wizards and Warriors 3), our NES game from 1989 or so.

With all this concept art I was trying to do drawings of the game sprites that matched what we could actually draw on screen, on an NES, rather than doing drawings that bore little or no relation to the tiny pixelly shapes on-screen, so I used simple, basic shapes and thick lines.

John named the tavern keeper "Newton N. Ridley" in the game, which we loved, as nobody outside of Britain would get the joke.

I must dig out the actual NES graphics for this guy, as he looks exactly like this drawing, and has a really funny walk animation.
