Innistrad and Avacyn Restored art by Jason Chan

Jason Chan is an Concept Artist and Illustrator for Film, Video Games, and Print. He was born in Stockton, California and moved out to San Francisco to study 3D animation at the Academy of Art University, but promptly changed his major to illustration and graduated in the Spring of 06.

Ever since I was a kid I’ve always been drawing characters for make believe video games, cartoons and comics. I also loved drawing my favorite X-men characters, warcraft heroes, and video game sprites. I drew a million Mega Man and Mario drawings. As I grew up, that love for video games and fantasy never left me. I grew to love fantasy novels and that inspired my work. Many of my favorite video games were japanese made so as I drew the characters from those games, I began to fall for the anime style. Of course, that lead me to watch anime - an addiction I still haven’t been able to shake. After a couple of years of horrible attempts at manga style art, I began school in San Francisco and actually got some decent life drawing and anatomy practice.
