Signing Cards Internationally!

[pix_dropcap]I[/pix_dropcap] am happy to announce that I will begin signing cards internationally through Jack Stanton and his signing service. For more information about the process, please visit his page. Several years ago I had to discontinue signing cards internationally for several reasons. Some of the reasons included people wanting me to lie on customs forms (which …

From the Vault: Mythic Entertainment

[pix_dropcap]T[/pix_dropcap]he other day I was rummaging through my old hard drives and I found some art I did while I was at Mythic Entertainment. After the bulk of the concept work had been finished for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, we were given the task to play around with different styles and ideas for new …

A Hunter Must Hunt

[pix_dropcap]I[/pix_dropcap] know there are a lot of people out there that believe playing video games is stupid and a waste of time. For some reason people don’t see playing video games as a legitimate hobby and they really don’t see it as a viable career choice. Usually as an illustrator, playing video games is just for …

GP Tokyo 2016

[pix_dropcap]O[/pix_dropcap]ver the past week we spent our time exploring Tokyo, eating tasty treats, and collecting awesome loot. This was my fourth Japanese GP for Magic: The Gathering, my first being Okayama in 2008. I also attended Pro Tour Nagoya in 2011 and GP Yokohama in 2013. Hopefully they aren’t getting tired of me because I love …

Shadows over Innistrad

[pix_dropcap]B[/pix_dropcap]ack in early 2010 I was brought in to help concept the world of Innistrad. Four years later I returned to help concept Shadows over Innistrad. It’s very exciting to be a part of creating the look and feel of both blocks. Innistrad was also my very first concept push for Wizards of the Coast, …

Blessed vs. Cursed

Today the Magic: The Gathering Duel Deck Blessed vs. Cursed came out. There are a few things flying around (heh…flying) the internet about these two images, so I wanted to address them here. First I’ll talk about Mindwrack Demon. As soon as I posted the painting on my Facebook page, a few people commented about …

Current State of Kickstarters

In the past I briefly mentioned doing a few different Kickstarters, so I wanted to give everyone an update. I still plan on doing them, so don’t worry! These days it seems that there are a lot of Kickstarter projects that are being created as an easy cash grab. I realize that creating a successful …

Curse of Strahd

[pix_dropcap]A[/pix_dropcap]lmost exactly one year ago, February 26th, 2015 to be exact, I finished my Curse of Strahd painting. Creating art for a client usually takes a long time before it sees the light of day, but I didn’t think it would take this long. Technically I started this project in November of 2014. The original …

Oath of the Gatewatch

[pix_dropcap]I[/pix_dropcap]t probably seems like I hardly post art anymore, which is kind of true. In 2015 most of my work came from Wizards of the Coast, which means it usually takes 3-4 months between each wave of art that I can post. I’ve also been doing a lot more concept work for Wizards, which can …
