Artists: Derek McEldowney

Hey, my name is Derek McEldowney. I’m an author and illustrator, and I also love games. I’ve played various TCG’s since I was a kid – nearly 20 years now. Even though I’ve never been super competitive, there’s something about putting together your own deck of cards I’ve always enjoyed.


I wanted to bring some of my work to creating awesome designs for play mats, binders and all sorts of things for TCG’s. My goal here is to make people feel like they can express themselves not just through their deck, but the field they play on, or the tome they categorize their cards in.
