getting a monopoly

Some time back I was asked to illustrate the elements of a game based on the Monopoly layout. The theme was to have kids interacting inside a city environment. The project was quite big, as it involved all the board elements, the box design and the cards used during the game play. They were all sketched up, cleared to finalise and the done in illustrator. The example above is of a corner element, and and the final version is seen below.

1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste

Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
