This strange drawing is by artist Leonora Carrington. She was a surrealist artist who created paintings and drawings based on her dreams, memories and imagination. Surrealists often put strange, unlikely objects or animals together to create weird made-up characters.

In this game you pick cards representing an object, an animal or a plant and create a made-up character by drawing a combination of what you have picked.
