Glen Angus (18 August 1970 – 19 July 2007) was an American illustrator, concept artist, designer, and storyboard artist,[1] as well as a senior Magic: The Gathering artist.

Biography[edit | edit source]

The latter part of Angus' life was consumed with his efforts to secure treatment for his two-year-old son, Teddy, who was diagnosed with autism in December 2006.

Children with autism respond to early intervention, but in many states, like Angus' home state of Wisconsin, there is an unfortunately long waiting list for aid in acquiring the expensive therapy; and therapy is often critically delayed through periods when it could be of the most benefit to the child.

As part of his effort to change this and the unhelpful current policies of most medical insurance companies, both for his own son and other children, Angus created a poster with his illustration of his son as he pictured him, as child trapped inside the barriers of his own mind, without voice.[1]

Passing[edit | edit source]

After suffering an unexpected health problem, Glen Angus passed away suddenly on 19 July 2007; he was aged in his mid-thirties and is survived by his wife and two children. Upon their hearing of his abrupt and premature passing on, fans and players alike were shocked, distressed, and deeply saddened by the news.
