Hey Joe! Have you considered working on any Flesh and Blood stuff? I'd love to see some FaB cards with my favorite fantasy artist's name on them! :)
I don't know a lot about FaB besides that it seems to be blowing up with collectors but I certainly wouldn't be against working with them. I've admittedly been lax on pursuing new clients but maybe I'll reach out to them.
Not just collectors! The Calling in Vegas this past weekend had almost 1000 players filling the seats.
Interesting. WotC has art directors that commission artists and those artists sign contracts saying the work they submit is their own work. That looks like a freelancer broke their contract and used someone else's work. In that case, the freelancer will likely be punished or no longer hired and the original artist compensated. I wouldn't be surprised if the original artist ends up getting a chance to do some cards because of this. I've been an art director (although not at WotC) and you'd be shocked by how often people try to turn in plagiarized work. It's extremely hard to catch every incident before it gets to print. Famously Pete Moehrbacher traced a pic of Die Antwoord and Terese Nielsen traced over a photo she didn't have any rights to. I don't believe either get work from WotC anymore.
