WotC Suspends Working Relationship With Jason Felix Over Crux Of Fate Art

Wizards of the Coast suspends future work with artist Jason Felix.

Wizards of the Coast (WotC) made a statement in response to the alleged stolen artwork in the Mystical Archive Crux of Fate illustration Monday night with the result being suspension of future work with artist Jason Felix.

The two-sentence statement said the card “may overtly feature Magic: The Gathering fan art and the contracted artist did not receive permission for this incorporation.” WotC will be suspending future work with Felix until the they can bring this matter to a successful conclusion.

Artist Scarypet on Deviant Art posted a tweet on Sunday with a video showing how their fan art of Nicol Bolas from 2016 appears on the Mystical Archive inclusion.

The statement didn’t mention anything about the card also featuring Ugin art that looks similar to the original art of Ugin, the Spirit Dragon by Raymond Swanland.
