Hi everyone - I hope you can point me in the right direction.

I am looking to buy some board game art, and when i say art, I mean a picture or a poster - something that would look good framed and on a wall. I have looked online, and all I can find is "chess" art which is not bad, but I was hoping for something more in this century.. maybe something meeple related?

If you know of anything or have any ideas, let me know!
Thanks,
Steve

The board for Siena would look pretty good framed. So would that be art turned to board game turned to board game art?

I know that a lot of the artists for Magic the Gathering have that art for sale on their websites and at various conventions. Not meeple related, so I won't go delving for links unless that interests you.

Otherwise, I don't recall seeing any board game artists have art for sale.

BUT... There have been geeklists of pictures on this site that are awesome. One fella even made a book for himself of great pictures from here.

Relevant geeklists:
Games as ACTUAL art
Boardgames as Art
Games with the best fantasy map art
Games with great box art
More:
Pieces of... I mean... Gameboards of Art
Aesthetics: games I would buy or I already own just because they look good!
Redecorating my house... board games as interior decoration

You know, there's an artist out there who did a painting of people playing Settlers. (If it were dogs playing Settlers I'd remember it better, since I'd have one on every wall of my apartment.) Let me see if I can dredge it up...
