Hey there! Here's another illustration I did for Magic: The Gathering's upcoming Avacyn Restored set. The card was spoiled today so I can show the painting!

More cards on the way! Cheers everyone!

Wow! When I stare at this picture a while, it starts to look like the two characters are moving towards each other, slowly.

Amazing lighting, love it.

I love this artwork, I've put the card in a couple of EDH decks just because it looks so good. Excellent work!

This is incredible in it's simplicity, it manages to capture the hope that Avacyn gave the people of innistrad even in absence, incredible work!

When my friend got a foil of this in a booster pack, I was so jealous. I just stared at the card for 5 minutes at least, pretty much cooing "It's so pretty," over and over. I love that the medal is also the Avacyn symbol and this is one of my favorite cards, just for the art alone.

It's amazing how something a bit unrelated could bring back a memory. When I graduated from basic we had just finished warrior week and were still covered in charcoal from our MOPP gear. My flight and I were the only ones out all the graduates that were not wearing our blues. The sun was low, just like this. We received our coins from the meanest, nastiest TI we had. We couldn't see him well because of the light, but you knew it was him by his silhouette and the way he walked. It was much like this...

Beautiful illustration. I've always loved your work!

This is perhaps my favorite card art in several years. During a draft it caused both me and my girlfriend to lose our poker faces and go "ooooh!"
