It’s been around four months since I posted any new art, so it’s way past due.
Back in August during the Oakland GP (at least I think it was the Oakland GP), someone came up to me and asked if I had painted a minotaur for Theros. Hardly any art had been spoiled for Theros and this was long before any of my art had been spoiled.
“I don’t really remember,” I lied. “I did those paintings so long ago that I’m not really sure what I painted for Theros. Usually it can take a year before my art comes out.”
“No,” replied the fan, “you painted a minotuar.”
How did he know?!? After that conversation I went online to see if anyone had spoiled my minotaur painting, but I couldn’t find anything. It was such an odd and specific statement that he had to have seen it somewhere. It was just weird because that card wasn’t spoiled until just last week.
Strange things are afoot at the Oakland GP.
I actually painted 7 more cards for the Theros block, so I guess they are saving them all for Journey into Nyx. Sometimes you paint cards for a certain set but then they never come out. One of them was painted for Theros, so I’m not sure what happened to it. Now the whole Born of the Gods set has been spoiled, but it isn’t in there either. Hopefully the rest of my cards will come out in May.
