Favorite Board Game Artists


Recommended Posts

I wanted to give a shout out to some of my friends in the industry who work hard to make sure the games we play look amazing! Then I got curious on what other people's favorite board game artists were. List your favorite industry artist here!

Andrew Thompson is somewhat new to the tabletop industry but I believe his iconic look will soon be well known. Dog Might got lucky enough to team up with this talented individual for our new game Countdown and he's done a great job bringing the 80's back! Hopefully this is just the beginning of a long and awesome partnership between this killer artist and the Dog Might design team.

Most recently I'm digging on the art for Forbidden Lands by Free League. Backed it on Kickstarter last week and the art is fantastic, lots of stuff from different artists but all in a very retro-fantasy style. Most of the art is by Nils Gulliksson, but my favorite piece is the cover art from Simon Stålenhag.

YES! Love this as well. Also, love the engine used in that game...it's from Mutant: Year Zero.

To be completely honest, I hadn't even heard of Free League before this, and that saddens me greatly. I feel like I've missed out on so much.

Still, the art drew me in and the description of the game and the overwhelming support from previous customers sold me on it. I'm strongly considering bringing Mutant: Year Zero to my game group in the next couple months to see if I can get at least a couple excited for it during the wait for Forbidden Lands.

We have been playing Mutant: Genlab Alpha for a little bit now (I believe I wrote about it on these forums somewhere). I highly recommend it...highly. Mutated anthropomorphic weasels and bears...nuff said.

Ryan Laukat is both a game designer and artist who did the artwork for Above and below, Islebound, Near and Far,  The Ancient World, and City of Iron. Its rare for an artist to also be a great game designer, but Ryan is able to balance both skills equally well. His style is bright, colorful, and whimsical, creating the fantasy world his games are set in.

If you consider photography artwork, I really like the campaign for "Triplock".

Another game that sucked me in with the artwork is "Infected"

If you like Infected, you may like the expansion...and the fact that we may be involved...

Hm, I'm curious what the clue means. You play-test....or created a wooden add-on....or you are infected with a tree disease. 

You'll just have to wait and see. It's not finalized yet...

I'm hoping some of my suggestions make the expansion.  I suggested "the quack" card.  Die role card.  The quack can kill you, do nothing, or around a 20% chance of curing you.

Kids, don't do Quack.
