Artist of the Week: Jason Chan

Jason Chan has done a decent amount of art for Wizards of the Coast. His earliest art for Magic can be traced back to Future Sight with art for Nimbus Maze and Pact of Negation.

Nimbus Maze  Pact of Negation

I'm willing to bet, however, that those cards are not what he gets the most recognition for. I think that card is actually...

Jace, the Mind Sculptor

That's right, none other than Jace, the Mind Sculptor, the most powerful Planeswalker ever printed. Jason's art that wound up on powerful cards did not stop there...

Avacyn, Angel of Hope  Karn Liberated  Iona, Shield of Emeria

That's right! He did art also for Avacyn, Iona, and even Karn. Of course, his art doesn't stop there. His art can be found on popular cards (at least when they were in Standard) like Silverblade Paladin, Vampire Nighthawk, Strangleroot Geist, and Sunpetal Grove, but currently in Standard, you can find his art on these three powerful cards:

Xenagos, the Reveler  Desecration Demon  Xenagos, God of Revels

Of course, his art appears on other cards like Thassa, God of the Sea and Spirit of the Labyrinth.

Jason Chan is definitley one of my favorite artists and his art shows up all over some really powerful cards. It's definitely worth the look to see what other card art he has done.

And as always, I will end this week's artist article with a sample of art with a link to downloadable wallpapers.

You can find Jason Chan on his website and occasionally on Twitter. We (Monday Morning MTG) use our Twitter more often than Jason uses his.
