Map of Japan

Jinja

An original board game by Times Infinity games LLC. This commissioned artwork is based on Shintoism, and the mythology and history of Japan. It was pleasure to explore an aesthetic i admire while also being respectful and conscious of the culture.

Kitsune
Artwork meant for playing cards, each with special in game capabilities. I had free range in terms of styling and direction for the characters. In the end I utilized a collection of Ukiyo e art, and various animate shows.

Map
My interest in map creation came in very handy for this art. The game-board needed to invoke a non specific era of ancient Japan while still being visually interesting and clear for players.

Branding
I created many variations of the handwritten typeface, eventually settling on this broad stroke version. The use of patterns was very essential to the overall aesthetic of the game. Photos of Japanese painting and artifacts were manipulated to create them.
