Zombie board game art for 30 Seconds to Live
Time is of the essence
I was commissioned by William Angus of Kitten Kaiju Games to produce zombie board game art for his debut self published game, 30 Seconds to Live.
In 30 Seconds to Live, you take on one of two roles: The Survivors or the Zombies…
As you can imagine you’re not best buds, it can get pretty hairy, especially when you only have 30 seconds to take your turn!
A project to get your (decaying) teeth into
This actually turned out to be a huge project. I think William hadn’t realised the scope and neither had I from the start. As we progressed new art commissions were added, I also built the Kickstarter to page to make it look really pretty!
There were zombies and heroes to illustrate, a tonne of weapons, streets and incidental images. So this project actually spanned about a year and half. I was pleased to have worked on the project throughout the whole process. It was nice to craft an aesthetic for the whole game and see it right through.
William actually commissioned more zombie board game art to do two box cover pieces. One from the angle of the Zombies and one from the Angle of the Survivor. I think I may actually love this comp more than the image that ended up as the cover. It really looks action packed!
Even more zombie art
I even decided to record myself working on some of the pieces…
A bit about me, the illustrator:
I’m Jamie, I am an illustrator, graphic designer, business owner and fantasy geek. I live and work in Sussex, UK.
I love working on fiction book covers and games in the broad genre I like to call “Escapism”… I’m particularly a massive fantasy fan, but love sci-fi and horror too. I’ve been working professionally on video games, books and board games since 2010 and even published my own successful board game: Hero Master: An Epic Game of Epic Fails back in 2018.
I achieved my lifelong dream of regularly working on illustration for the Warhammer 40k IP in 2021, and can’t wait for the next challenge to arise. Shout me if you need me, you can fill in a few details to get the ball rolling, but following the link below.
