Michael Slack is renowned for his product and game development. He is the creator of several board and card games, including Ick! and Bizaroids, as well as the app Scruffy Kitty. Michael develops products mainly for the juvenile boy market, with an emphasis on radical characters including monsters, bugs, and even electric guitars. His style is influenced by the modernist art and pop cultural design trends of the mid twentieth century, contemporary character culture, and especially his three-year-old daughter, but he always refers back to his zany sense of humor for inspiration. His work has appeared on everything from backpacks to puzzles to back-to-school stationery.
