Today I play tested a number of very interesting board game and card game concepts and agreed to be the principal illustrator for one in particular.
You can expect to see a fair bit of concept art relating to that project here over coming months.
The creator and I have made a written agreement with broad terms to recognise our good faith negotiations with each other, we have allowed time to make sure the creative relationship will work and have divided expected responsibilities and expectations. One of the key terms of our agreement is to seek a much more official contract before money or intellectual property is formally exchanged. So I’m now on the hunt for a suitable contract, something like this one, to use without engaging the services of an IP lawyer at this already extremely expensive moment of my life.
If anyone knows a good IP lawyer I have a couple of things I would like to run by them. At my own expense of course.
Incidentally I’ve never been particularly huge on board games but I’ve been so surrounded by people who are and for so many years that a certain amount of passion for them seems to have rubbed off on me. I know enough to say if you have not experienced board games other than Cluedo and Monopoly you owe it to yourself to try one of the new generation of games that are actually fun.
Rough concept forest tile. My pen ran dry and I am struggling to keep eyes open so I’m not going to refill and continue I’m foing to bed.
By agreement I am going to try and channel a bit of the style of the indomitable Mike Mignola into my work.
With a quick hue shift to reduce the contrast some.
