Special Achievements:
A pioneer in the video games industry, Mike previously had a long career as legendary developer BioWare’s first artist, and for 12 years illustrated for some of the top video games of all time. Mike’s experience at BioWare creating box art, magazine covers, concept art and marketing illustrations allowed him to seamlessly transition in 2009 to pursue his true passion of fantasy illustration and oil painting.

For the past 10 years, Mike has created roleplaying and card art for the gaming industry’s top franchises, including Magic the Gathering,Hearthstone, World of Warcraft,Star Wars, Pathfinder, Marvel and Dungeons and Dragons. Now working almost exclusively in oils, Mike is sought after by clients and collectors to utilize his vibrant style bringing the fantastic to life.

Additional Information:
Mike’s personal work explores the theme of “modern mythology” as he re-imagines classic subjects with a modern narrative aesthetic. He is interested in the continuance of the artist’s traditional role of interpreting timeless stories from literature and myth.

Study for Perseus and Andromeda
by Mike Sass

“The classical mythological tale of Perseus and Andromeda. In Greek mythology, Andromeda is the daughter of king Cepheus and his wife Cassiopeia. When Cassiopeia’s hubris leads her to boast that Andromeda is more beautiful than the Nereids, Poseidon sends the sea monster Cetus to ravage Andromeda as divine punishment. Andromeda is chained to a rock as a sacrifice to sate the monster, but is saved from death by Perseus.”

Golden Reflections
by Charles White

“I went with some painting buddies to Yosemite National Park in mid-October last year to do some plein air painting. The weather was perfect and we had a glorious day. This stand of bright yellow foliage caught my eye as I walked along the river bank. So we got out our painting gear and captured the scene before the afternoon sun disappeared behind the mountains. ”

Morning on the Athabasca
by Derek Wicks

“Every year I venture out into the wilderness of both the Banff and Jasper National Parks. The scenery there is among the most spectacular in the world and is my preferred painting and reference area by far. This painting was inspired by a moment in the early morning when I saw the morning light just about to peak over Grisette Mountain. The colours of purple and blue filled the sky and river creating one of those inspiriting moments in an artists life. In that moment “Morning On the Athabasca” was born.”
– Derek Wicks
