The Battle for Vik'Tornaahl is a card game and artists' deck project designed and illustrated for Light Grey Art Lab's Rolemodels exhibition. The deck features the illustrations of 99 artists from around the world. The card game set includes a 100 card deck and a 100 page guidebook packaged in a full-color illustrated box.
The illustrated guidebook shares the back story of the land of Vik'Tornaahl—complete with a map created by Paper Bicycle—as well as the back stories of the individual characters in the artist deck.
Paper Bicycle designed the cards, box, book, story and gameplay for The Battle for Vik'Tornaahl, as well as providing the illustrations for the box and reverse side of the cards.

In Place: Wish You Were Here
In Place: Wish You Were Here is a full color, 80 page art book inspired by 50 of the most fantastic places around the world. Fifty different artists contributed illustrations to the project, which functioned as a companion to Light Grey Art Lab's In Place exhibition.
Paper Bicycle and Light Grey Art Lab teamed up to research each place and provide a few paragraphs of information and insight to compliment the illustrations. Paper Bicycle designed the book, which includes cover flaps that open to reveal a world map marking the places illustrated in the book.

The booklet shares a brief history of Tarot, offers insight into each card's meaning (upright and reverse), and provides a few beginner card formations.
