Hall of Heroes – Concept Push

izards of the Coast has become my second home. I just returned from another three-week concept push at WotC in Renton, WA. I think this marks my fifteenth concept push, although, three of them were for Dungeons & Dragons. One time I did an emergency concept push that only lasted for two days, but I’m …

Dragons of Tarkir

[pix_dropcap]A[/pix_dropcap]t PAX East, Wizards of the Coast previewed some of my paintings from Dragons of Tarkir, although I think the entire set has been released online by now. I only have three cards in Dragons of Tarkir. I actually had to opt out of the second wave of commissions because the deadline was going to …

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 …

Khans of Tarkir from SDCC

Hey everyone! I’m sure you are all back from SDCC by now. I didn’t go, but I saw some of my Khans of Tarkir illustrations were spoiled at the con. This first illustration was painted more than a year ago. I had just gotten back from the first concept push for Khans of Tarkir when …

WotC Concept Push 2014

I just returned from a 5-week concept push at WotC. I was joined by Cynthia Sheppard, Steven Belledin, Steve Prescott, Wayne Reynolds, Sam Burley, and Vince Proce. It was great seeing and working with everyone again, even if we were trapped in a tiny room. After 2.5 weeks Belledin and I broke out of our …

Journey into Nyx

The other day WotC spoiled some more of my Journey into Nyx cards. I think I actually still have one more card that hasn’t been spoiled that is supposed to be in the set. I dunno, maybe they used it for something else, that has happened before. Hmmm, I wonder what she’s hiding ¬†underneath those …

New Art Fo Yo Face!

Warhammer Sorry for the long absence yet again. For the past 7-8 months I haven’t posted very many new paintings. I’ve been working with some different clients lately and it’s hard to tell when or if my new paintings have been released.¬†I started thinking that maybe I didn’t do very many paintings in 2013, but …

WotC Concept Push #3

I spent the past three weeks on another concept push at Wizards of the Coast. What that really means is that I was locked in a tiny room with a bunch of other guys drawing stuff and drinking tasty Oregon Chai. There were some old faces and some new ones as well. Well, there was …

WotC Concept Push

The Room I spent the past three weeks locked away in a room with four other guys, huddled over a computer, marinating in warm concept artiness. Occasionally I would glance over at the other guys to see what they were doing, and I was always both impressed and intimidated by their work. These weren’t ordinary …
