Artist Series - Day 10: Karla Ortiz

Back from the realm of the old dead men of sci-fi art to the world of young, living women!  I don't actually remember when I first heard of Karla Ortiz' work...as I recall, it just sort of started bubbling up around me, with friends mentioning her with respect and a bit of awe.  I met her at IlluxCon this last September, and she's as awesome in real life as her art.

She works at ILM, but has done a number of Magic: The Gathering cards...





And of course, concept art:


According to her blog, she's got a show in LA on Feb 1st, which, coincidentally, is the first day I'll be in LA for CDA...I may have to look into checking it out!
