Collection of illustrated works.
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 a field I felt was very complimentary to my skill set.
