MTG SHOP - Artist Proofs & Original Drawings

Welcome to my shop for purchasing my Magic card Artist Proofs and Original Drawings!

MAKING A PURCHASE:
Send an email with subject "MTG PURCHASE" to mrburns928@aol.com listing what you would like to buy. I will confirm the price of your order and then you can send payment to me via Paypal.

*Please note, my schedule tends to fluctuate, so at times I may not be able to respond to emails immediately. If my schedule becomes too overwhelming to take on new orders, I will make a note on this page.

*****ARTIST PROOFS*****

Foil Proofs, Non-foil Proofs, White-back
What is an Artist Proof?
Artist Proofs are the same as a regular Magic card except the back side is completely white. Artists typically receive 50 Regular (non-foil) copies and 30 Premium (Foil) copies after a card is physically published. The limited quantity of these cards make them highly collectible, and the white backs are perfect for adding drawings.

Buyer Info:
  • Each Artist Proof comes with a free signature and is numbered on the front.
  • For an additional cost, you can have a sketch of my choosing (themed to the card) drawn on the back. 
  • Prices per card will depend on the card's rarity and popularity.
  • Card only purchases will be charged for shipping:
    $1 for 5 or less cards
    $2 for 6-18 cards
    $3 for 19-54 cards

*****ORIGINAL DRAWINGS*****


Below are the original pencil drawings I have available for purchase. Sometimes I create a preliminary drawing as part of the process to creating a Magic illustration, other times I create a supplemental drawing after the card art is finished to go along with the card's release (these are not part of the actual creation of the card art itself).

Buyer Info:
  •  All drawings are created with pencils on Bristol paper.
  • Drawing purchases come with free domestic shipping within the United States, for purchases outside the U.S. there will be an additional charge.
  • Drawing purchases made in the same order as artist proof purchases will have no additional shipping fee per-card amount.
  • All drawings will be insured and you will receive a tracking number.

My first Magic: the Gathering card


The full preview for Magic the Gathering's latest set, Amonkhet was finally unveiled yesterday, and with it, the first Magic card I've illustrated. I would like to introduce you to Soulstinger...

Totally putting this into my mono-black -1/-1 counters deck :D

I'm very excited! Well before I got my first Magic assignment, I would (and still do) interact with Magic on a daily basis. It's one of my favorite things! So it's incredibly cool to be a part of the game that I've been enjoying for ~10 years.

While I definitely worked hard to get to this point, there's no way I would've been able to make it if it weren't for the constant help given to me over the years by so many. If you're reading this and you've ever spent any amount of time helping me in any way, this thank you is for you (there are so many of you I couldn't possibly name them all <3 b="">Thank you all!!

My collection should give you an idea of how excited I am.
And I gotta give a special thanks to Cynthia Sheppard. She did a lot to help me get my foot in the door with Magic, and I was very happy to work with her for the first time on Amonkhet. Thank you Cynthia!!

Thanks for taking the time to read, and may you "Rise Among the Worthy".
