The problems with artist pay on Magic
Working on Magic:The Gathering is a life goal for a lot of artists. It’s a
goal for many that signifies “making it” as a fantasy artist. The sad
truth, is that it’s not as good of a deal as most people think. For some,
it’s worthwhile for them to work on the project anyways. Fantasy art is a
tough business and Magic is a relevant breaking in point for a great deal
of artists worldwide. It’s too bad that it ultimately doesn’t provided a
sustainable income for most of artists...
