In a recent interview on WoW Insider, Michael Whelan discusses DEATHWING, the World of Warcraft painting commissioned by Blizzard, Nalathni Dragon, his Magic: The Gathering card, and the new Pern cover he’s illustrating.

The scope of the game and the base of enthusiasts who are involved in it is really staggering…when I started in the world of publishing, I would be excited if I heard that the readership for a book that I’d done a cover for had reached as far as Europe…But the gaming field is so worldwide and so international in scope that you feel like if you’re involved with any aspect of it, as an artist, you’re reaching to the entire planet. That’s just an incredibly humbling realization.
