Check out Square Tactics: a FREE, indie, print-and-play card game!


My best friend and partner in crime (aka, my husband Owen) created a fun, easy-to-play card game. Before he put it out into the world, he needed some original art to replace his google-image placeholders. So, he asked me to draw some of his character ideas.

Working on the artwork for Square Tactics was a great opportunity for me to work on character design. There are four factions (or teams) to choose from when you play – aliens, robots, ninjas and cats. After a few rounds of sketches, we agreed on the character archetypes and styles, and I created the final line art. Owen then designed the cards and placed the artwork.

There are 48 cards total, but here are a few of my favorites. You may recognize Noisy Ninja from my comic strip Noisy Ninja Bounces Back, which I created after I developed the Ninja character for Square Tactics.
