Fun & Games

 

While I watched my family play board games, I became entranced with the design of those games. I loved the printed colors, imagery, game pieces and the dice. Looking at a game board with a magnifying glass, and subsequently other printed advertising, I was surprised to see halftones. Printing with dots, who knew! Working on this series seemed a natural step for me, paying homage to what gave me much joy in the past.
