Prototypes and drawing into the night

Whilst I am busy with the concept stage for the card art, I am also working out refinements to the game design. I really enjoy the challenge of trying to make this game. One of the things I really like about illustration is the problem solving. Designing this game is that but ten fold. Keeps me on my toes and is a great learning experience. Nice to have my cat along for company.

Escape! On no actually there is more to do...

Over the winter I illustrated a variety of game boards and numerous other assets for this new and ambitious Escape room board game project. I worked closely with the design team at Identity Games, not just to deliver exciting illustrations but also to help with problem solving and refining the look and feel of the whole project. The game is now at the manufacturers. I am eagerly awaiting a copy.

This week I begin work on the first of two expansions. Looking forward to getting my teeth into that!
