The illustration

These monsters were created for a special edition of Richard Garfield’s board game, King Of Tokyo. The intention was to allow the illustrator to reclaim and reinvent the game universe, creating a beautiful object in a darker, graphic atmosphere than the original edition. The grayscale illustrations featured a single accent color on each monster that intensifies the darker atmosphere. The illustrator’s challenge was to play within the confines of the dark atmosphere while maintaining the cartoonish, family-friendly style of the original smash-hit.
