Our tree is decked out, our lights are twinkling, the fireplace is glowing, and thick Southern Comfort eggnog is cupped in my hand. We're officially marinating in the season. Happy holidays to you all! So waaaay back in 1996 the... Continue reading
The reference to Ethiopia was from some recently translated scrolls in the care of this organization. http://www.essene.org I very much love the idea that she is a strong, spiritual black woman and an equal counterpart to Jeshua.

I've painted many versions of Wolverine, on Force of Will cards. He just looks good on this card. : ) However, this is the first Hollywood, Hugh Jackman style version I've done. This alteration was not as a private commission... Continue reading

Whenever a new "art assignment" for Magic the Gathering appears in my inbox (or in the old days, my fax) I immediately stop whatever I'm doing and read it. I can't stand the suspense, and need to know immediately what... Continue reading

I had the opportunity earlier this year to create several one-page tutorials for the fantastic magazine, Imagine FX: Fantasty & Sci-Fi Digital Art. Though their publication is primarily focused on digital tutorials, a portion of the magazine features traditional art,... Continue reading

"Hanna, Ship's Navigator" (for MtG's Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 first expansion) isn't the first time I've been asked to illustrate Hanna, but being asked to make her look appealing certainly was a first. In case you haven't been involved... Continue reading

It's just a little over a week away, and I'm so excited to get to meet and work with all of you attending the workshop. It's going to be an awesome 3 days! If anyone is still interested, I think... Continue reading

12x9" sketchbook, sepia/white pencil on Strathmore paper Sketchbooks are amenable participants throughout all our bipolar, ADD induced dramas. Admittedly, dogs are pretty awesome, in their unconditional-bliss-filled-lickiness. But, sketch books... they're our ultra-sturdy Kleenex's on demand. Tuck them under your arm... Continue reading

Descendants' Path seems to have struck a cord with a lot of people, and I confess that working on it was unexpectedly transformative. But before I "descend" into an unusual display of personal transparency, I want to get the ordinary... Continue reading

You're more than welcome to translate it and put it on your blog. Thank you very much.
Thank you! Nowadays I paint on Velvet Fine Art paper. I print my sketch on this paper and then wet-stretch it.

Basandra is one of the few Magic the Gathering images that I have hanging in my home. It's almost as if the wall in the middle room (which has been painted for over 3 years, yet remained barren) was waiting... Continue reading

The BEST Batman movie ever! Heath Ledger was brilliant and there's just nothing more to add to that. This altered card was painted with acrylic and oil and is available for the next 5 days on Ebay! Learn more about... Continue reading

Force of Will was the very first Magic card I ever did for Wizards of the Coast back in 1996. Though I didn't know it at the time, it turned out to be quite an auspicious debut, I guess you... Continue reading

You KNOW you need this for your deck! : ) I figured out a way to take photos periodically while altering cards. So, we put together this little video showing the card morph from Force of Will to Force of... Continue reading

he majority of alterations I create are on Force of Will cards. However, once in a while I like to mix it up and have fun doing something different. This is a playset of the special M11 foil promo cards,... Continue reading

Unfortunately, this is the final issue for Realms of Fantasy... I'm sorry to see them go. They've been a great asset and support to the fantasy industry. Back in February 2001, they published me in their Artists' Gallery, and I... Continue reading

Every now and again I get assigned a Magic card that gives me enough creative freedom that I'm able to embed a lot of "me" into the piece. "Silverskin Armor" is one of those. What makes a piece "me"? I'm... Continue reading

I've been seeing Johnny Depp's face everywhere because of his latest movie "The Tourist", and was reminded of what a great "look" he has, and how fun it would be to paint him. Captain Jack Sparrow was a character I... Continue reading

Three years into my career, I was asked to create an image for the Topps Vampirella Gallery card set. Aside from the basic proportion of the card, I was given complete artistic freedom as to how I could illustrate her.... Continue reading

Back in 1999 Wizards of the Coast offered a promotion to encourage people to teach their friends to play Magic called, "The Guru program". The five lands shown here were included in this program as giveaways. These illustrations depict the... Continue reading

I'm not sure what inspired this altered card idea. Now and then I like to give the shaman and his Wolverine-like claws something to sqewer. So, I figured why not one of these pesky little buggers. This is another alteration... Continue reading
Hi Jordi, I'm trying to find out where it's available. It's suppose to be at http://www.cypi.net, but for some reason their site is up and down part of the time. If I get more answers related to this I'll post it here. Thank you!
