Artist: John Avon

This guy must love land, since a lot of his work is land-based. His artwork can easily be described as "majestic" since John employs a lot of rays of sunshine and massive cityscapes and it usually looks pretty spectacular.

Best Art: Gaze of Justice
Gaze of Justice
I love this art because it incorporates both John Avon's big landscapes and lasers. The fiery, blasted landscape really punctuates the fact that that demon is being pierced by a laser. All of the dark and dreary atmosphere just coincides really well with that sky laser. In short, lasers made this art awesome.

Worst Art: Ice Floe

This is just really minimalist and comes off as a little lazy (not saying it is, but compare it to this and you'll see why I think it comes off a little on the lazy side). That's all I really have to say about it. It's ice and it's a floe. Yup.

Most ???! Art: Lantern Kami

WhatisthisIdon'teven! I know that Kamigawa's art was pretty messed up in general, but that doesn't mean I'm going to give it a pass. I highly doubt the Shinto spirits that inhabit lanterns are supposed to be thought of as amorphous blobs of red goo with occasional orbs of light.

So that's my look at John Avon's work. He's one of those artist whose work you may not recognize off the bat, but it's work you've definitely seen. And it's really good work too, which is always great (unlike some other prolific artists of the game),
