On July 3rd-5th I'll be heading to Montreal to Attend the Magic Grand Prix as a featured artist. It will be my fifth GP and my first trip to Montreal. They also asked me to produce a custom playmat image for the event, one that related to the local flavor in some way. While I could have easily done an image that involved moose playing hockey while slathering themselves in maple syrup, I decided to... do a little research on the city itself instead, and what makes it such a unique historical destination. As it turns out, it has been called "The city of one hundred steeples", for its seemingly endless supply of churches and cathedrals. And that seemed like a pretty great place to start for a gothic fantasy art piece.

Awesome work, Jason!  Love the texture and the deep crimson of the interior cloak.  Gives it a feeling of blood-saturated living tissue.  Very nice touch.
