Client Dave Dorman Joins KILL SHAKESPEARE Board Game Art Team

For Immediate Release: CHICAGO, IL–November 21, 2013–Eisner, Inkpot, and Bram Stoker Award-winning creator and artist Dave Dorman is painting the box top packaging art for the IDW board game KILL SHAKESPEARE. Artist J.K. Woodward has also signed on to the art team–creating the playing card art–for the June 2014 launch of the game.

Said IDW CEO Ted Adams, “We’ve long respected the art that both J.K. and Dave have produced over the years, and having them both be a part of the initial offering from our IDW Games division only gives our coming Kill Shakespeare game that much more individual style and excitement.” Added Dorman, “I’m looking forward to creating some dynamic cover art that speaks visually to the fans.”



Said Kill Shakespeare writer and co-creator Conor McCreary, “The lore we’ve created for Kill Shakespeare is incredibly deep, and we think our fans will enjoy spending more time with the characters and world we’ve created for them.”
