Artist of the Week: Michael Komarck

So almost all of the recent Artists of the Week we've had for a while were chosen because I have stacks of cards on my decks and I look through a couple until I find a really cool art. Then I think "does anyone recognize these artists just by their name?" So let's play a small game of Word Association...


So Michael has done art on many Bant cards from the Alara block and even one from Commander 2013. His art is also featured on one of the favorite Commanders from the original Commander set.

He also has only done a single art for Plains, Island, and Forest, as well as one of the dual lands from Future Sight.

He has done art for one of the Eldrazi Titans, specifically the one that gives you card draw.

In addition to all the cards referenced above, he has done art for three planeswalkers and he is the only person to have done art for both non-duel deck versions of this vampire planeswalker character.


By now, you should hopefully recognize several of the cards Michael has done the art for. So without further ado...


Bant

To be fair, while I was mentioning the colors for Bant, Michael did do the art for this plane card...


Clarion Ultimatum  Finest Hour  Rafiq of the Many

Just a selection of a couple Bant cards from the Alara Block. There are more.

Derevi, Empyrial Tactician  Kaalia of the Vast

Ah, our Bant Commander (Derevi, Empyrial Tactician) from Commander 2013 and one of the favorites from Commander 2011, Kaalia of the Vast.

Plains  Plains  Island
Forest  Horizon Canopy

Basic lands from Alara (and subsequently reprinted in several sets) and the Future Sight dual land Horizon Canopy


Kozilek, Butcher of Truth

Eldrazi Titan of card draw: Kozilek, Butcher of Truth.

Elspeth Tirel  Sorin, Lord of Innistrad  Sorin Markov

I tried to word the clue about Sorin the right way since Michael Komarck did not do the Sorin, Lord of Innistrad art for the duel deck Sorin vs. Tibalt. He did do the original art for it, along with Sorin Markov. He is also currently only one of four artists to have ever done card art for Elspeth, and until last year, was the only person to have ever done art for a Sorin planeswalker card.
