I have now had several published games with my illustration/graphic design (Article 27, Quarantine and most notably: The Capitals)--looking for work on new boardgame projects.

I live in Seattle with my crazy dog, Tornado.

While attending Origins 2001 for work, I discovered Euro-style boardgames and quickly became a big fan. I worked with Children's fantasy properties and I was routinely involved in the development of fantasy worlds and turning them into animated series, ccgs, platform and online games. Occasionally, I've been asked to develop mechanics and artwork for a traditional board or card games as well, but nothing has ever come of those efforts as yet (my North-American marketing associates simply shake their heads in dismay at any board game that does not comfortably resemble Monopoly, Sorry or Clue). Ugh!

As a recent hobby--that has begun to lead to more professional involvement--I've been recreating the artwork for boardgames that I am interested in, but have decided are just too ugly to play. Foremost among these are The Mystic Wood and Merchant of Venus. Examples of my work can be found on the geek page for each of these games. Other games I'd like to someday visually enhance are: Wizards, Voyage of the B.S.M. Pandora, The Sorcerer's Cave, Amazing Space Venture and 2038: Tycoons of the Asteroid Belt. I'm also open to suggestions--just no war games please.

Other examples of my work can be found in my BGG Gallery:

My ideal game would be centered around themes of city-building, exploration and resource management on an alien world (and I mean it when I say ALIEN). It would feature learning about a very unusual biome, including distinctly non-earthlike flora and fauna--and be tightly competitive and yet have NO combat between players.
