Magic The Gathering: Nicol Bolas by Cryptcrawler Magic The Gathering: Nicol Bolas by Cryptcrawler
Box/Advertising art for Magic the Gathering's 2013 Core Set.

Working on this was an absolute privilege and I'm extremely grateful to have been asked to illustrate Magic the Gathering's supreme bad ass, Nicol Bolas.

Missing out on the Innistrad block really hurt. I adore gothic horror and it was loaded with so many disgusting bad guys, but getting to draw the master of all evil masterminds more than made up for it.

You can find out more about the 2013 Core Set here: [link]

God Bless
