Card art for Heresy Research Labs game. Each character will have it’s own card to be used in the game. It takes fae legends and brings them into a dark apocalyptic world. With each of these I was given a rough description of the character and a thematic color associated with them. From there I developed the character’s image, how the description would work into it, and Heresy provided input along the way.

Direction: “Robin Goodfellow, aka Puck, from Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” He’s a hob who plays dirty tricks and while not outright malevolent, is definitely not a beneficial faerie. Easily an amoral trickster. His thematic color is dark blue.”

I took the classic image of Puck – which was basically a satyr – and brought him into the modern world. I wanted to show him as if he just pulled a great prank and was enjoying the aftermath.
