Juan Ochoa Joins the CORE Project

In the latest CORE news, artist/illustrator Juan Ochoa will be doing the art for CORE COMPLETE, and I am absolutely thrilled to have him onboard! Juan’s portfolio can be found here:

A lot of Juan’s work has a sense of humor, which is one of the things I love most about it. Game book illustrations are often so violent and grim, right? But that’s a thematic limitation we don’t need to bear. The whole idea will be to illustrate the universality of the CORE system, both in terms of settings and tone.

This book is gonna be your new favorite 🙂
