Is there a contemporary artist or illustrator outside of the gaming world you'd like to see involved in a boardgame project?

List them here! Who, knows, maybe some published may take note and do the magic?

My choice goes to Rita Petruccioli, a young italian artist whose style simply enchanted me.

I'd pay big money to see a boardgame illustrated with her style. Just imagine a medieval-themed game with this kind of artwork:



Also, she could be the perfect choice for a new Dixit expansion, with illustrations like this one or this one.

Would love to see Nina Paley illustrate another board game. She did the art for Monster Factory, and it's one of my favorites despite being a children's game. Her style is simple, hilarious, and just a bit on the crazy side.

Phil Foglio has done some artwork for Magic: The Gathering, but I'd really like to see a Foglio-illustrated fantasy or SF game.

This guy is a video game artist, but I'd love to see his stuff on a board game. Really fun, geometric style. His work always makes me grin.

BRITTNEY LEE

I think she mainly does concept art and storyboards for Disney, but with her paper crafting skills, I think she could design a killer set of components for a game. Love her stuff.

I would love to see the work of Joe Vaux in a board game. His work is like a surreal Dr. Seuss.
