Recorded history, by its nature, is a condensed narrative. But in reality, history is built upon the backs of thousands, millions, of people, events and points in time.

Some are related. Some seemingly insignificant. Others profound. The vast majority of them one rarely, if ever, hears about.

An odessey in short form

MAG-100 is told as a collection of sketch stories that together, begin to uncover the history of a far future. A history in which mankind, still driven by the machinations of corporate greed, explore the depths of a mysterious, monolithic artefact.


Each story is accompanied by it's own 'sketchbook', helping to visually depict and lay the foundation of the unique universe of MAG-100.

From sketch work to 3D images, the visuals help define and explore all the options of what could be.


The Silent

A visual dive into the desolation and isolation felt by those exploring the layers of the artefact.

Presented as a series of illustrated vistas, 'The Silent' provides a rich visual sub-narrative intertwined within the arc of MAG-100.

"The idea was drunkardly simple - two teams starting at the same point would race out to see who could tap the most N-Stone within a given grid reference..

'The League'

Pitting two or more players against one another in a fast paced, capture the flag style game with strategic twists and turns, 'The League' is a tabletop stsyem developed directly from the narrative of MAG-100 and is included as part of the universe.

Who am I?

Hello, I Am Gerard Thomas

I'd like to say I am big in Japan... but I'm not.

Through my passions and interests I have managed to do a lot of things in the field of design - from designing motorcycles (Ducati Motorcycles), apparel, and experiential installations (for the likes of Sony, MountainCycles, Telstra, NZ Navy...), to doing illustrations for magazines.

I'm that person HR type people can't cope with.

I have been world building the MAG-100 universe since 2019, finally finishing the writing aspect in late 2022.

It has been, and continues to be, as much of a passion project as it has been one of personal creative exploration.

Keep in touch with MAG-100?

If you are interested, you can keep up with the continuing development as I work toward completing, and publishing, at my sketchbook diary.

I also have a very infrequent newsletter that you can sign up to, if you don't use social media.
