First, let me welcome the "Return to Ravnica"set for Magic: the Gathering which is about to be released in the next couple weeks here.  Ravnica was immensely popular with the M:tG crowd - but I didn't start working on Magic until after the original Ravnica set came out so it was fun to get to dabble in that world after missing out the first time around (see the above dabbling - a creepy spike-chained dancer comin' at ya!)

Secondly, if you are in the general region of eastern Pennsylvania at the end of next month, I will be the guest artist at the Philadelphia Grand Prix October 27th and 28th.  I shall be the hand-cramped high-on-sharpie-fumes guy behind the little table signing cards, doing play mat sketches, selling prints and selling original artwork.

Speaking of play mats, there will be a surprise play mat available at this event only that yours truly did the artwork for.  That's right, all you collector nuts, limited edition Steve Prescott Philly GP play mats!!! What does it look like, you ask?  Well, you'll have to wait and see - but it's good, silly fun in keeping with Ron Spencer's previous two GP play mats - plus, it has a bit of Halloween/Fall appeal, too!

Lastly, all you Magic players and fans.  I need your help.  I'm looking to make some prints for this Philly show and am curious to know which Magic cards I have done that you would be willing to buy prints of.  I'm looking preferably for artwork from the last year or so - and I especially need a hint on which of the five soon-to-be-released Return to Ravnica pieces I did are worthy of making prints of (if any!).  Be truthful - you may like the artwork but that alone rarely sells prints at Magic shows - the artwork has to be on a card that is at least somewhat useful if not great in tournament play.  I've been burned too many times by making prints of art I thought was pretty cool only to sell close to none of them because the card is a stick in the mud!

As the month goes on, I will be posting more Ravnica stuff as well as (eventually) the play mat artwork for the Philly GP so keep in touch!
