Artist of the Week: Todd Lockwood

Last week, we looked at Kev Walker's art, one of four artists mentioned by John Avon during his AMA on Reddit. Todd Lockwood is the second name on the list:


Continuing on with this theme, let's take a look at Todd Lockwood's art!

Like with last week, I'd like to begin with recent oversized cards, like Planechase and Archenemy.

Agyrem

Look Skyward and Despair

So, we have Agyrem from Planechase 2009 and Look Skyward and Despair from Archenemy (2010).

The first card that featured Todd Lockwood's art was a common from Urza's Legacy, Slow Motion

Slow Motion

This card was first released February of 1999. There have been at least 1 or 2 cards with Todd's art work printed every year on average and sometimes even more.

During the original Ravnica Block, Todd's work showed up on cards for two of the Guildmasters and one of the guild champions.

Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind  Borborygmos  Teysa, Orzhov Scion

Of course, Todd also provided the art for the other version of Niv-Mizzet which was in Return to Ravnica.

Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius

Of course, there have been many more cards, especially several alternate arts found in several From the Vault sets:

Cruel Ultimatum  Rith, the Awakener  Sharuum the Hegemon

Along the way, there have been several powerful carts to show up with Todd's art including the only land art in print drawn by Todd.

Entreat the Angels  Raging Ravine  Path to Exile

Additionally, there were two mythic rare legendary creatures from both the 2011 and 2013 editions of Commander decks...

Karador, Ghost Chieftain  Prossh, Skyraider of Kher

And, now for some wallpaper...

Khalni Hydra
