Gallery Highlights[edit]

Artwork Quality Relevance Description Replace?
Ertai, Wizard Adept Medium High Early depiction of Ertai. Nominated for a Chelsey Award for this artwork specifically. Only to improve quality
Fact or Fiction Good Very High Artwork is of a powerful blue spell. Depicts Hanna & Squee. Features a self-portrait of the artist as Hanna. Only to improve quality
Force of Will Good High Artwork is of an iconic blue spell. Her first artwork. Becomes redundant though with the current alt art choice. Consider replacing with High Quality from Garuk vs. Liliana
Samite Elder Low High Artwork is not of a really memorable card. The children in the artwork are portraits of her four children. Only to improve quality
Wound Reflection Low Very High Artwork is part of a collaboration with her brother Ron Spencer. A cycle in Shadowmoor. Any higher quality of the reflections could work.
Force of Will Alternation Very High High An altered Force of Will. Terese is well known for alterations. Any high quality alteration could work as long as Force of Will is in the gallery in some fashion.
Gerard Duelist Cover High High A cover of duelist depicting a large portrait of Gerard Capashen. She did several Gerard works considered to be some of the best versions of him. Not recommended.
Guru Lands Low Medium Alternate art lands distributed as part of the Guru program. The feature several versions of a ellipse over the card. Artwork only version of all five.

Use this as a quick way to determine which artworks need improvement or replacement.

Terese's termination of contract with Wizards[edit]

I've updated the page to reflect her no longer being under WotC employ, and briefly summarized the background issues. If a better editor than I would like to take a stab at fleshing it out, much obliged: would particularly love a bit of detail on the Autumn Burchett "NO TERFS ON GRUUL TURF" incident, as it is notable in giving commentary to some of Terese's more... ah, problematic views. Thanks! Tm123123 (talk) 18:17, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

Honestly I hate this whole Drama Llama stuff and would like to keep that out of the wiki as best as possible. That being said, it is pretty significant when one of the most high profile mtg artists gets terminated. - Yandere Sliver H09 symbol.png 20:41, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
So the only reason I specified her personal beliefs is that her termination came up in response to them. If Artist N got let go for no specific reason, I agree it doesn't make sense to catalog their beliefs here.Tm123123 (talk) 17:20, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
I didn't want to criticize you, I think your work is pretty solid with the situation as is... The whole situation just annoys the heck out of me. - Yandere Sliver H09 symbol.png 17:25, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
