World of Weegcraft

Sophie Rowan

These are three illustrations from a table top role playing game that I created with a friend based on the city of Glasgow. We created stories that were fantasy parodies of well-known areas and people.

I wanted these illustrations to be whimsical and magical and perhaps also hint to their Glaswegian connection. They show the GOMA, the Necropolis and Central Station - each with their own twist that can only be found out if the game itself is played!

I find a lot of enjoyment from working with the area I live in. I feel like it's often the opposite of what I would tend to do, so many of us want to find freedom from where we grew up but sometimes it can be far more interesting to look deeply into the environment you were born into and create something new from it!
