RYDACOM COOL ARTIST – Raymond Swanland

From Raymond’s Bio: “Ever since I can remember, I was one of those kids with some tool to draw with in my hands. Mythical creatures, robots and, of course, dinosaurs were strewn, in one form or another, all over my room… and marched across my walls. I never really thought I would be exploring that same world of symbolism and imagination as I grew into an adult. But as fate would have it, I’ve had the tremendous fortune to turn my passion into a living through creating artwork for novels, video games, and feature films.”

Beginning with the Future Sight expansion set, Raymond Swanland’s artwork has graced more than a hundred Magic: The Gathering cards. Raymond’s distinctive style — like the jagged edges of creatures like Wurmcoil Engine or the violent destruction of cards like Glare of Heresy — have helped to tell the story of the conflicts and struggles that have occurred across the MtG Multiverse.

He is an absolute genius so please enjoy viewing this as much as I enjoyed posting it…
