One of the cards I had the pleasure of illustrating for Magic The Gatherings 2013 Core Set.

You know you can't help but kind of giggle when you think of near man-sized forest-matter - animated by sentient fungi - coming to kick your ass, but then you realize that having dozens of logs busted upside your mellon would not be a laughing fuckin matter...

Ok, if it was someone else it probably would be.

I would make it a green sorcery that summons 3 fungal creature tokens.

Shroomy. This is fucking sick, I am seriously considering getting a Magic deck now, just for the Art. Do they sell artbooks of these collected somewhere?

I will refrain from gushing, suffice to say I LOVE this piece intensely, especially now that it's bigger than a few inches  Love
