The Steampunk Universes of Sean Andrew Murray
Sean Andrew Murray is a freelance illustrator, designer, author, and educator who has been working in the entertainment industry for nearly fifteen years. Most of his career to date has been devoted to video game design, working on titles such as Dungeons & Dragons Online, The Lord of the Rings Online, and also on the TV series Carnival Row.
And it’s probably this title that best fits Sean’s visual universe: a mix of steampunk, fantasy with a touch of horror. It’s this vision that he builds in his own Gateway card game. It reveals a dark world, resembling a subtle blend of Victorian London and a city straight out of Requiem, the comic book created by Olivier Ledroit and Pat Mills. The buildings are steamy creatures, the colors are dark and the stories could be absolutely mysterious and fantastic.
