The Grand Prix experience isn't complete without a visit to the artists. They bring life to our favorite cards and characters in the game. They are always happy to sign cards, often have proofs, prints, and original copies of art, perhaps one of your favorites. We are proud to have these artists joining us:


Artist of Grand Prix Minneapolis' playmat (Bontu's Last Reckoning) Victor Adame is a fantasy and sc-fi Illustrator from Mexico. He specializes in what he calls (or many do) imaginative fiction, and tries to stay as close as possible to traditional style, while creating his pieces in digital.
