Dan Scott

Dan Scott started as an avid player of Magic: The Gathering and was thrilled when he finally got the chance in the Champions of Kamigawa set to illustrate his first card. Since then he has contributed to nearly every set and has gone on to do art for more than 70 cards for the game. Today his art can be found on numerous other products including book, magazine and comic covers.
