Hour of Devastation

ello everyone! It’s time for another Magic: The Gathering art dump for Hour of Devastation, which was just released yesterday. I didn’t have as many illustrations in Hour of Devastation and I wasn’t completely happy with the illustrations I produced. I was on a concept push when I worked on these illustrations, so maybe that’s …

Kaladesh

[pix_dropcap]A[/pix_dropcap]ll of my cards for Kaladesh have now been previewed! I have a total of 6 cards in Kaladesh and I think I’ll have 4 in Aether Revolt? I’ll have to check. Working on Kaladesh was a huge change from Innistrad, not just the content, but also the lighting and color palette. Kaladesh is all …

Kaladesh Previews from PAX

[pix_dropcap]I[/pix_dropcap]f you’ve been following Magic: The Gathering at PAX, then you’ve probably seen a few of my concepts and illustrations for the upcoming set Kaladesh. Back in 2014 I was brought in as part of a team to help concept the world of Kaladesh for Origins. I believe during that original push it was just …

Eldritch Moon

[pix_dropcap]T[/pix_dropcap]ime for some new art! The rest of my Eldritch Moon cards have been previewed, so I can finally show the high-res versions.

I’ve been doing illustrations for Magic: The Gathering for probably 10 years now but I …

Battle for Zendikar

Origins

[pix_dropcap]I[/pix_dropcap]t has been a long time since my last post. We just recently moved and with my work schedule and helping raise mini Daarken, things have been pretty busy. Origins was a special set for me.┬áI was lucky enough to be on the concept push for Origins, so I helped design the look and feel …

WotC Concept Push – 2015

I just got back from another 3-week concept push at WotC. Of course I can’t tell you what we worked on and unfortunately you probably won’t see any of it for another couple of years. Boooooo, I know. The concept crew this time consisted of Tyler Jacobson, Cynthia Sheppard, Chris Rahn, and Steve Belledin, with …

Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014

About a year ago I was commissioned to paint a player avatar for Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014. The game just came out last week, so I can finally post it! Actually, you have to thank Dylan Safford. When the game came out, I posted a little challenge on my Facebook page. The only way …

GP Portland

Earlier this month I was at the GP in Portland. Unlike most shows where there is only 1 or 2 artists, this GP had 6! RK Post, Anson Maddocks, Steve Argyle, Chuck Lukacs, and Mark Tedin were there. I had never been to Portland before, but I’ve heard that it is supposed to be full …
