Magic the Gathering Artists

RIP Chris Rush, One of Magic: The Gathering's Coolest Artists

The fantastic, fantastical artwork of Chris race is imbued in to the head of numerous Magic people, even though they’re not really acquainted with his name. He provided art for more than hundred of game’s earliest cards, including its most famous: the Black Lotus. We’re saddened to report that race passed away yesterday.

There aren't any facts about Rush’s death, but their work will survive in Magic: The Gathering. Not only is he in charge of some certainly unforgettable cards, like Lightning Bolt or Indomitable Will (you can see a whole variety of cards Rush had been accountable for here), but he also helped the look and marketing and advertising show with artwork whenever secret initially introduced, and in the end created the symbols of Mana—Red, Blue, Green, Ebony, and White—icons show up on each and every card within the game to this day.

The Ebony Lotus is Rush’s most well-known work—its Alpha and Beta versions from earliest days of Magic, featuring Rush’s artwork (above), are considered to be a few of the rarest cards into the whole online game, well worth virtually $30, 000 in mint condition.
