Vicki is a professional freelance games artist with several years under her belt producing work on games both analogue and digital: board and card games, and mobile games for phones and tablets. Clients include Mind Candy (for Moshi Monsters), and Mayfair Games.
Her approach is to consider a game's art as being there to support and enhance its mechanics. She enjoys using a combination of illustration and graphic design to enhance communication of a game's systems and to improve player interaction.
Vicki works in a variety of different styles to suit each unique game project: from realistic historical work, to fun and fantastical comedy.
Recent projects include a board painting for 'Hot Tin Roof' for Mayfair Games, 'Every Round Counts' for Thirsty Knight Games, ‘Promised Land’ for the Ragnar Brothers, ‘Bronze’ and ‘New Dawn’ for Spiral Galaxy Games. Past projects include the irrepressible comedy card game: ‘Braggart’.
She has an art blog at http://vickipaull.blogspot.co.uk/ which, should giant robots fail to attack, updates every Monday.
Gillian Pearce of Helion Art has been illustrating professionally for approximately 12 years now and has numerous publishing credits in various fields ranging from book cover and interior illustration, card game artwork, role-playing game illustration and cartography.
At UK Games Expo she will be showing her art and will be willing to do Character Sketches. Do you have a favorite character from book or roleplaying game? Go visit her stand. The first 6 of you will get the sketch free.
Lee's artwork was inspired by a Tuscany vacation, but soon developed into an imaginative exploration of Eastern, then Gothic settings
He often uses dramatic, bold and contrasting colours
