Michael C. Hayes is a professional freelance illustrator based in San Diego, California. Michael has created illustrations for Magic: The Gathering by Wizards of the Coast and Legends of Norrath by SOE.
If you’re familiar with Michael C. Hayes’ work, it’s hard not to imagine his delicate brushstrokes forged from a childhood spent drawing extraordinary visions from the first breath. So I was surprised when I read his online biography, which opened with a simple but unusual introduction.
“If you had told me I would end up painting for a living at the age of 17, I would have thought you were talking about houses or cars.”
His career had originally started in software engineering. I remember thinking about this many times; more than anything, it was not only refreshing but inspiring to see another path to art, especially from such a prolific painter.
