Artist of the Week: Donato Giancola

Over the past three weeks, we've look at Kev Walker, Todd Lockwood, and Anthony S. Waters, three of John Avon's four favorite artists.


Donato Giancola was the fourth and final name on the list, so let's check out his art!


Village Elder  Amber Prison  Grinning Totem  Moss Diamond

Donato's first work showed up in October of 1996 in Mirage with Village Elder, Amber Prison, Grinning Totem, and Moss Diamond.

Sword of Kaldra  Shield of Kaldra  Helm of Kaldra

In the Mirrodin Block, Donato worked on the cards that create a legendary creature token and are also the art that resemble the set symbols. Also from Mirrodin is Chrome Mox.

Later, in Ravnica, Donato illustrated three guild leaders and two guild champions.

Szadek, Lord of Secrets  Sisters of Stone Death  Razia, Boros Archangel
Tolsimir Wolfblood  Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran

There were also three powerful artifacts with art by Donato:

Memory Jar  Mirari  Coalition Relic

Of course, Donato also has done the art for a pretty powerful and popular creature for Commander, at least for five-color decks.
