Black Lotus!...on eBay!

Black Lotus - 14 x 16 in., oil on masonite
 
 More on this later but, long story short, I was asked a few months back to create new art for the Black Lotus (one of Magic: the Gathering's most famous cards). I was totally honored to do it and really enjoyed working on it. While the card won't ever be printed, from what I understand it will be the new look of the card for the Magic: the Gathering online game. 
 
Anyway, because of the huge response to the art I wanted to give everyone a fair shot at owning the original. If you're interested, you can find it on eBay here.
 
Also, I've (finally) started a Facebook page! Follow me here.
