Rhys Yorke is an artist, writer and designer. Growing up in a small town in Ontario, he found his passion for storytelling when he was gifted a well-loved, but battered version of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. It wasn't long before he was writing his own stories, designing maps, monsters and heroes, and taking his friends on adventures with table-top role-playing games.
Entering the comic industry in 1999, Rhys began working on Marvel’s Deadpool, and has since been involved with ThunderCats, G.I. Joe, Battle of the Planets, Vampirella, Robotech, and a number of exciting titles. His journey has taken him into the television/film, animation and video game industries – notably to work on The Secret World, FarCry 5, the television series The Expanse, V-Wars, the Netflix feature Polar, and the new Nickelodeon series Blue’s Clues and You.
Currently, Rhys is developing a story-telling focused role-playing game that merges elements of science and magic, codenamed ARCANE-XIV.
