Every year I look forward to attending the annual Lion in Winter Board Game tournament hosted by our good friend Derek Glenn. It's one of the highlights of my year. Board game enthusiasts travel across states to attend this intense, epic battle of intelligence. For two straight days we do nothing, but play board games. It's awesome! I don't mean board games like Monopoly, Risk, and Scrabble (although I do like Scrabble.) I mean hard core board games like Race For the Galaxy, Castles of Burgundy, and Agricola. Last year my husband attended the World Board Game Tournament where he became the world champion at Castles of Burgundy. So yeah. We're pretty obsessed.
One of the many things I love about board games is the gorgeous art and illustrations. Someday I would love become a professional board game illustrator, but for the time being I've illustrated a poster for this year's Lion in Winter Tournament coming up in a few weeks! I can't wait.
