Hi everyone :)

My name is Miguel and my artist name is Jazylax!
I have a degree in character design for animation, but after finishing it, I realized its not really what I found enjoyable or rewarding to create...

Now I design board games, toys and character design galore for cartoons, commercials and etc. Im also studying Child Development next to be able to become a teacher and incorporate board games into the life of young students and their families. I LOVE board games, and I LOVE cartoons and I just enjoy what Im doing so much now and I want to share with you guys my board games, maybe you will enjoy them with your friends or children :)

Heres some of the stuff Ive done or working on for games

http://imgur.com/a/TDmQK My own monster designs for a childrens RPG game

http://imgur.com/sez9srI This is a poster for an MMO game im working on with a partner

http://imgur.com/tgW4DjS This is another concept for a future board game!

My board games in progress right now are called...

Death Quest (Wacky "RPG" Adventure for Young Children)

Pikmin (A card game based on the 1st Pikmin game for the GCN)

Animal Crossing (A really cool "What could have been" If Amiibo Festival wasnt so bad. My game feels like you are actually in the game. Working on this game with my girlfriend.)

Hot Salsa! (This is a big, D&D kind of game about Vegetables in the Mexican Wild West, its crazy, its cartoony and anything can happen.)

I will talk about each one eventually in future posts, I will be finishing one by one and hopefully look to publish the ones that arent based on videogames, I hope to meet awesome people of all kinds and I look forward to learning about your games too :)

A long, exciting career

Jazylax,

I spoke to a group of graphic design students at NYU a few months ago, and brought to their attention the need for folks with their skill-sets in the board gaming industry. While many KS projects should absolutely fail, as they're not mature enough in the process a few good ones could truly become great with a solid artist and graphic designer.

Unlike 12+ years ago when companies maintained tight control over their art departments, now artists from around the world contribute to our hobby and passion. Good luck to you!

Cheers,
Joe
