Hands down my favorite card in the history of magic. I have a holofoil copy of it. Awesome. Also, the fact that you work in oils makes you my idol.

I love this art. I actually play magic and really appreciate realistic art like this for the cards.

Heh, I remember when they first showed everything about the card except for it's art, and this particular card's text read, "Of course I'm sure I've gone mad. The little man who crawled out of my eye was quite clear on this.", and I remember thinking it would be so cool if the art for that card actually depicted that... and then it did! ^^

With only the three cards with your artwork they have released, I can already tell you're going to become one of my favorite artists.

This is simply . . . wow! The colors used on the skin and eyes make this incredibly realistic. And I am not sure what is going on, but let me say that is is delightfully trippy. :) Also, it's nice to see some epic work being done with oil and not on the computer. Digital art can be truly awesome, but sometimes I feel as though the traditional art is becoming a lost art in the commercial world. Just my two cents ;). Fantastic work!
