Jeremy Cranford is a former brand and art director for Magic: The Gathering at Wizards of the Coast. [1] [2]

He is portrayed on the Unhinged card Fascist Art Director, in reference to his confrontation with Rebecca Guay. Rebecca mailed Rancored_Elf on MTGNews that Cranford thought that her work was too feminine for the vision he had for the game. [3]

WotC felt compelled to release a statement clarifying their position — that Guay was never 'fired' but simply not contracted as a freelance artist for Legions (2003), and that her work would be used in future sets. [4] Cranford left Magic in June 2006. [5] [6] He was replaced by Jeremy Jarvis.
