Deadly Allure

I'm often asked where I draw my inspiration from, or how I get my ideas, that sort of thing. I'll tell you. I steal them. My one and only true inspiration came in the form of a thought-stealing machine, which I named "Kleptykins," and now abuse at every opportunity. I use it so much that the power company sends thugs about once a week to tell me to knock it off.

This particular piece was stolen one night from Indiana Jones' Ambien-and-whiskey nightmares. After this point in the dream, it got... weird.

You'd think I'd use this magnificent machine to amass a collection of terrible secrets of powerful people, and be filthy rich from blackmail tributes. I guess stealing all my ideas has caused my cleverness lobes to atrophy. Anyway, I'm going to get back to pointing this thing at Hollywood and laughing.

For Magic the Gathering, copyright Wizards of the Coast. Art direction by Jeremy Jarvis.

Snakes provided by "Pulled Out O' the Plumbin' Pawn and Peculiars." No animals were harmed in the creation of this painting. We did that before and after.

Oh, and check out my quasi-journal-post for sketches and some additional chatter. [link]

The humour in the description verifies you're free of atrophy.

What a wonderful seductive picture, and also one of my favorite cards to play mechanic wise.

That's like two boners for the price of one!
