Nils Hamm is our featured artist on site this weekend and he’s been busy signing his fair share of Delver of Secrets, Grave Titans and … Gilder Bairn.
While both of the first two cards have had quite an impact on the competitive scene, the latter seems to be mostly popular for its unique artwork.
He came here all the way from Düsseldorf, Germany. He’s been creating art for Magic for the better part of the last decade, which means he does qualify as one of the veterans of the game.
Like many other artists, his favorite piece of art isn’t necessarily the most popular card; he didn’t take long to decide on Chancellor of the Spires, partly because the card has a history. A friend of his from California introduced him to some new techniques and after he received the briefing for the Chancellor, he was able to put them to good use and he came up with the amazing result on his very first take making use of these techniques.
Nils Hamm is looking forward to come to Italy, which is his favourite European Country, and to do some live painting at the GP Bologna.
