Artist in the House: Melissa Benson

Northeast Wars is pleased to welcome back Melissa Benson, a longtime friend of the convention and well-known fantasy artist. Melissa originally attended Northeast Wars in the 1990s when the mischief in the mountains was just getting underway.

Ms. Benson has a long history with the gaming hobby, going all the way back to 1993, when a little company calling itself Wizards of the Coast started collecting art for a card game by the name of Magic: The Gathering. The Shivan Dragon, pictured right, is an iconic example of her work. She has since gone on to illustrate cards for many more collectible card games, including Shadowfist, 7th Sea and Jyhad, as well as other gaming-related pieces, such as commissioned character portraits.

Many samples of her work are available for viewing on her website, as well as the opportunity to purchase prints, gift items displaying her art or even commission her for an original piece.

We’re really looking forward to welcoming Melissa back to Burlington for another Northeast Wars!
