Ghostel: The Boardgame

Client: Tinkerbot Games

This is an indie game successfully funded on Kick Starter in Febuary 2016. I created all of the illustrations for the game. The characters on the cards are a combination of horror icons and caricatures of the backers. These are samples of the artwork done for the project from Box art, game board, cards, and tokens.


Tempest: Shards of the Gods

Client: Fox Tale Games

A new indie card game coming to kickstarter soon. It utilized a more realistic and sketchy style.

Caricature


In addition to illustration and game art, I've practiced the art of caricature for over 6 years. I take digital caricature commissions and am available to do live drawings at events such as weddings or parties. I can draw 13-15 faces per hour in black and white and 8-10 faces with color.

My Story:

My name is Tyler Johnson. I'm a freelance artist focusing on creating high quality illustrations and designs for games, novels, and personal commissions. I earned my Bachelors Degree in Illustration and Animation from the Illinois Institute of Art in 2008. After my educational adventure, I began my career as a professional caricature artist and developed my skills for a few years. While I enjoyed the environment and community, I felt I wanted to get back to my roots in games and animation. I took a position at a small studio called Game Refuge. I became a valuable resource creating promotional art, concept designs, and most of the animation. Unfortunately the studio had to close its doors without being able to release the games we were developing. Since then I've been on my own creating artwork primarily for independent board game developers. As a lover of traditional gaming myself, this is definitely an industry I want to be in.
