The Mad Professor’s Workshop

These images are from The Mad Professor’s Workshop, a set of StoryWorld cards, just published by Templar. The idea of John and Caitlín Matthews’ StoryWorld series is to play storytelling games with the packs of cards. Many of the sets revolve around fairytale themes, but with this new pack they’ve pushed off in a slightly different direction, a mix of magic, science fiction, and W. Heath Robinson.

I was one of four artists contributing to the Mad Professor pack, along with Wayne Anderson, Sandy Nightingale, and Levi Pinfold. Each artist painted seven cards. I’ve posted fragments of some of my other paintings earlier. You can find all the related posts here.

The set is available at Amazon UK.

One of the other artists in the set, Levi Pinfold, has just completed his first picture book, The Django, and it’s a stunning piece of work. A couple of paintings from it are currently on show at The Illustration Cupboard in London, as part of a group show of Templar picture books.
