When it comes to Magic artists, I know very few. John Avon, however, is one of the ones that I do know, because of how massively popular the guy's art is. His lands are beautiful, and I enjoy that Magic goes beyond simply what rules mechanics the cards have.
One of the coolest Magic video series around is Inside the Deck on Gathering Magic, and this week they were able to interview the one and only John Avon.
