I loved his art in Rage as well. An artist with a truly unique style. RIP Quinton.

That's sad news. He was my favourite M:tG artist too. I was very fond of his Jugendstil-like style.

He was one of my favorite artists as well. I really like his earlier style, but his work on newer cards is great as well. His style is one of the reasons I now like Alphonse Mucha's art.

Hard to choose favorites, but his art for Regeneration is among them:

No way!

Distinctive iconic stuff.

I still believe that artwork like his, and others from the earliest sets played a large part in Magic's success.

Wish I still had my Vesuvan Doppelganger t-shirt. My favorite M:tG artist as well.

R.I.P., Mr. Hoover.

Also my favorite Magic artist. And I had that same shirt for many, many years.

Sadness.
