In Conversation with Lizzie Karen on Atlantis

We’ve all heard of Atlantis. Was it real or purely mythological?  

For as long as she can remember Lizzie Karen has dreamt of Atlantis. But were they more than dreams?  

Join me for Part 1 of In Conversation with Lizzie Karen, check out her videos, and decide for yourself 🌍✨

Four new Netrunner card illustrations for the Midnight Sun pack from NISEI.

Despite the game’s global popularity, FFG was forced to shutter Netrunner due to licensing in 2018. Recently a group of dedicated players decided to carry the torch and create new cards for the community. Their team is called NISEI and I’m thrilled with their initiative.

Chatushka

Fists raised in solidarity against corporations, loosely based on a Ukrainian rhyming song.

Backstitching

The concept was to depict a runner using gathered intel to loop through cyberspace like a thread and navigate past ICE (Intrusion Countermeasures Electronics).

Ubiquitous Vig

The concept presents disembodied hands of the elite: corpocrats, mobsters, and private subsidiaries all greedily swiping their cut from a trove of profits.

The Twinning

This was one of the most challenging cards I’ve ever worked on. There have been images that have been more time consuming to pull off visually, but the brief for this piece came in two pages, rather than the standard 2-4 sentences. The writer’s intentions was to present a character, a gender-fluid environmental activist with cybernetic enhancements named Esa who lives in Siberia and spends xir time battling corporate exploitation. “Twinning” is a term used to describe growth patterns in crystals that result when different types of crystals pair together symmetrically. The twinning represents the ethical and spiritual drive of Esa to unite the workers of the megacorporations doing the harm, as well as being a game mechanic that allows players to link this and another card together. Phew. The end result may look obvious, but it took some problem solving. The writer expressed his surprise that I pulled it off and was thrilled with the result. I love when I can make that happen πŸ˜…β€οΈβœ¨

Book cover art and design I created a few years ago, titled Lotus. A magical story written by Eylem Tok. From Sintiyapera Publishing, Turkey.

“Lyra, Goddess of Mother Earth, stood alone. The only place on Earth where there was a single drop of water was the lake where her daughter lay sleeping. She turned her gaze toward the waters of the lake, in the middle of which floated a pure, pink lotus flower. That pink lotus flower was her daughter, Rigel.”

Well I never expected that my love for painting would lead to them appearing on stickers and shirts that would then find themselves at our local urban oasis known as brookline booksmith. Yet here they are πŸ˜Š

Actually, if you know where to look, hidden among the shelves is a gallery of my pictures…

This post is to honor the recent passing of artist & illustrator Marshall Arisman, whom I had the privilege to study with at The School of Visual Arts, in the masters of illustration program he founded. A true visionary, Marshall was a man of deep wisdom, painting images that look you in the eye from beyond the veil.

“You gotta learn to stand in the space between angels and demons.”

He was patient, tough but fair, and always encouraging of personal growth. Marshall’s influence on other artists is vast and will continue for a long time. As his work lives on, his company will be missed 🌷
