ABOUT GAME THEORY
Game Theory is the third drawing series within the larger series of Raddington Falls. The candy-colored compositions combine Lego mini figures with video game and board game iconography. Layers of colored pencil are carefully overlapped to the point where they could almost appear computer generated. The use of colored pencil reflects how video game, board game and toy design always begins with a pencil sketch on paper. It is the start of every creative process.

ABOUT RADDINGTON FALLS
Game Theory drawings are a series within the series “Raddington Falls: Child’s Play”. Born out of the artist’s childhood play with Lego, Raddington Falls is the fictitious town in which the drawings’ recurring characters live. The societal values that children learn through adults and the media is the main theme that is interwoven throughout the broader series. Children learn to uphold these values through the act of playing with toys.

“Toys are a perfect mirror of society, a perfect mirror of the lives people are living at a certain period; and therefore, when you look into the history of toys, you are also looking back into the history of mankind.”
– Dr. Helmut Schwarz, Toy Museum Director, Nuremberg, Germany
