The Queen of Spades Project: Illustration and Interactive Storytelling

Article – Published 10th Jun 16

The Queen of Spades Project is an experimental collaborative initiative by Joel Lardner and Paul Roberts, Illustration lecturers at the arts university Bournemouth. The research imperative throughout the project has been to harness emerging games technology in order to transform how storytelling and picture books can be understood and reinterpreted. This paper seeks to locate The Queen of Spades Project in relation to illustrated books and computer games, examining what we believe to be a currently untapped arena for contemporary illustration practice in a digital age, and within what has been argued to be the future of publishing.
