Like all good adventures, it started over a set of dice....

Back in 2008, Nikku was busy GMing a sky pirate themed GURPs game he titled, "Tinia", for his group of friends. PPR found herself enthralled with the game world.

Artistically, she had been going through a two year rough patch...but something about "Tinia" inspired her to pick up her pencil again. Soon, she was illustrating scenes, drawing character designs, and creating creatures for "Tinia". The game was over, but the world still heavily influenced her art

Inspired by her efforts and wanting to learn how to draw for himself, Nikku and PPR set to work on fleshing out the world and creating new ones. Now social evenings would consist of the pair working late in to the night drawing, writing, and planing together.After one eventful evening of art, while the pair waited for pancakes at the local diner, Lucky Squid Studios was born!

Soon enough, they found themselves signing up for cons. At first things were really, really rough...the pair had plenty of ideas...but no direction.

Then Taylor came along!

Taylor worked through each design, offering PPR and Nikku input and critique. Before he knew it, PPR was his crafting buddy. She was inspired by how talented he was with sewing, illustrating, and painting. They would hang out at her house, collaborating much in the way she and Nikku did. Working on new crafting ideas!

Taylor found himself taking an active interest in the group. Eventually, all the members were working under the same roof. Creating new designs together, learning new skills, and doing everything in their power to share their creations!

Now, Lucky Squid Studios travels all around the country, makin' cool stuff for everyone to enjoy!
