Amonkhet inspired designs by @serrasilverbrush

A special project for GP Vegas that we hope we can bring to life! The Magic Art Show Kickstarter is only $2K from the Cosplay Stretch Goal and it would mean a ton if you could share this and/or support!! Thank you so much. This is one of the cool things we’d like to do for the Stretch, as the Art Show will have an Amonkhet Room featuring original paintings from AKH!!

Support the world's largest exhibition of Magic: the Gathering artwork ever created to be hosted at GP Vegas 2017 on June 14-18

I finally am trying to do it.

A real art exhibition is being organized and I have over 80 paintings and more concept art than I should own to showcase. This is a four-room, full art show and will be free to everyone at Grand Prix Las Vegas this June.

What if you can’t make it? We will have a virtual tour for $5. 
What if you can’t afford to fund it? Promote it like hell. 

This is to build the process to do *more* art shows, different planes and different themes in the future. It’s almost like we have stretch goals that will do that…


And here are a few artworks that will be in it, in case you’re curious:


Farseek by Martina Pilcerova

Innistrad concept art by Wayne Reynolds

Invoke the Firemind by Zoltan Boros & Gabor Szikszai


Please support if you can!

*TIME SENSITIVE* For Magic's 25th, has WotC thought about updating/claiming more Guinness world records? Aside from the few it holds, there are some that you could unseat just by applying, like Largest TCG tournament (currently lists YGO from 2011, but you beat it in 2012 at the Vegas GP, even splitting the 2 main events from 8000~ to 4000+). Best selling is also possible, but i don't have the numbers. The process is not immediate though, so you'd have to apply now to be in time for the 25th.

I’ll pass along the suggestion.

this week has been really weird and i get the feeling that something shady this way comes

Have you guys seen this photo?  Like I said where I saw it on facebook…

“There is nothing about this picture I do not like. Yo, Steve Argyle… this is custom tailored Minion fandom gold!”

So… head count.  Here we have Jaclyn, Minion #486, and Christine, Minion #86 (… curious numerical anomaly) posing in front of Steve’s versions of their namesake planeswalkers Chandra Nalaar and Liliana Vess.

This photo was taken at GP Las Vegas 2015.

Hi Tumblr! Hopefully you’ve already heard of this amazing event happening at GP Vegas. I’m happy to announce that the Art Show has teamed up with me to bring a diverse group of community cosplayers to work as hosts in the gallery if the Stretch Goal is met. Needless to say, your support of this event would mean a lot to me and the good people I’m bringing with.

For $25 you can get the sweet exclusive playmat with Amonkhet-themed artwork by Zack Stella, but whatever the size of your donation, or even if it’s just a share of this post or telling your friends about the Kickstarter - myself, the Art Show team, and the other cosplayers are so grateful for you having our backs and caring about things like community, diversity, art, story, and other Vorthosian matters of the heart.

I hope to see you in Vegas!

You may have seen a couple of these before, but posting today because the Art Show is funded at over $11K and I wanted to show off the work of one of the cosplayers who can work the event if we get the Stretch Goal.

Erin is a friend of mine and she is a mom, hailing from Canada. She, like me, isn’t in the “stereotypical” Magic demographic (being late 30s ladies) and to me that makes her a total badass. She likes to play green, and still finds time to make these sick cosplays even with two kids and a job. Erin is a generous-hearted person and truly nice. She sews & builds things mostly from scratch.

One of my goals with the Planeswalker Summit and cosplaying at the Art Show is not just to promote MTG and cosplay but to highlight the diversity that really IS here in the community but does not usually get covered.

Thank you those of you who lend your voices to making this game a better and more inclusive place for us all.

THANK YOU community for all your support of the Magic Art Show so far! We are almost at $11K in funding, headed toward that $15K! The whole team and I appreciate you encouraging friends to donate if they can. And if you’re going to be in Vegas, please let me know! I’d love to meet MTG Tumblr in real life :)
