It’s almost time for GEN CON 2018! It’s so exciting! I’ve never personally gone to the convention, and, well, I won’t be going this year either. However- this will be the closest I’ve ever been, as my work will be there in the form of the prototype of POST HASTE!

I’ve been working on the artwork for Post Haste for a while now, and am thrilled to finally be able to show a little bit off. As always, I’m thankful to the FFTCG Community for being so open and accepting, and sharing my work.

What is Post Haste?

While I will not be there, we will have our Meta Potion official Matthew Okimoto around to show off the cards and give a brief demo if there is interest. I’d love to get some good pictures back from the event!

Where Can I Keep Up With Post Haste?

You can keep up with the card game in several ways:

We are looking to run a Kickstarter within the next couple of months to push this game into reality!

Character Sketches and the Final Fantasy Trading Card Game

This is probably the busiest time of my entire life. I’m getting married in two weeks,  and my fiance is holding his very first card tournament.
cards-sketch-siteFinal Fantasy has often been an influence in my artwork, often inspiring me during times I would be otherwise completely uninspired. I think it’s wonderful that my fiance has been able to really make a living out of something we both care about so much.

The Final Fantasy TCG really hasn’t been getting the marketing it needs or deserves. Most of the time that it’s actually promoted, we hear a clear “How did I not know this existed?”

So in case that person is you- The Final Fantasy TCG is a very real, and very good trading card game, similar in function to Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon, and Yu-gi-oh. There is currently only a single distributor for the game, which is why you can’t find the cards at your local stores such as Wal-Mart or GameStop.

He is also holding his very first tournament here in Lake Mary, FL! It’s very soon (March 31st), so if you’re local and interested you should totally check it out.

Did I mention that this is the busiest month of my life? We’re getting married the weekend after the tournament. I think my little sketch at the beginning of this post will have to do for art for just a short while.


I am curious- had any of you heard of this game before I mentioned it? If you hadn’t, is it something you’re interested in? For how massive the Final Fantasy franchise is, it boggles my mind that it’s so under the radar.
