Art and Collectible Cards
Many of the now widely popular collectible trading card games have
considerable artistic content. New cards are published regularly with
new artwork. The Star Wars, Star Trek and Babylon 5 games use movie
stills; the Pokémon and Illuminati games use anemie or cartoon
drawing; and the Doomtown, Magic, and Legend of the Five Rings games
use vivid brightly colored illustrations.
Doomtown is probably the most artistically rich, and best playing of
these games. Nine Doomtown cards illustrated by Byron Wackwitz, Art
Director of Doomtown during its artistic development are on display
Best of Pod.

won Best of Pod for September. It was chosen for the variety of work
displayed, for the anecdotal explanations of motives,
choices, sources, and places that go with the paintings, for the
connections to other of art pages under the umbrella of Ali's
McArchives, and for the humor in many of the pieces.
