Drew Tucker

Professional Illustrator, photographer and furniture designer since 1992

Artist Drew Tucker first gained fame as one of Magic: The Gathering’s Alpha artists, while a student at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, Washington where he studied illustration and furniture design. During a watercolor class, he was approached by fellow student Sandra Everingham about an art project she was a part of. They were looking for illustrators and Sandra found his work to be unique and exciting. After introductions to Magic art director Jesper Myrfors, he was assigned several pieces in the inaugural set, sending his career in an unanticipated direction.

Since his emergence on the fantasy illustration scene in 1993, Tucker has worked on fantasy, horror game and magazine illustration. From time to time, he saunters off into music and editorial illustration as well. His works have been shown and collected worldwide. Game companies such as Wizards of the Coast, Onyx Path Publishing, Upper Deck, White Wolf, Renegade Games, Fantasy Flight Games, Five Rings Publishing and Paradox Interactive have featured Drew’s works throughout the years. Tucker’s preferred mediums to work in are Oil and Watercolor.

Drew and his wife live in Kirkland, Washington, where he maintains his studio. His schooling includes the aforementioned Cornish College of the Arts (Seattle), earning a BFA from the College of the Arts (Seattle) and an MFA from the School of Visual Arts (New York City). In addition to being an illustrator, Drew was an art professor for several years up until 2018. These days he spends his time in the studio, working on assignments from various game companies as well as private commissions.
