Welcome to the Spring 2017 Edition of the Ascended Minion Project newsletter. This letter is intended to remind you of our quarterly Ascension campaign! For those of you that don’t follow the activity on the tumblr blog for this group you may not be aware that Ascensions happen on the first day of each season.
The winner of the Winter 2016 Ascension was Minion #510 who is now also known as Ascended Minion #31!
The recent winner of the Spring 2017 Ascension was Minion #194 who is now also known as Ascended Minion #32!
The next one is scheduled for June 21, 2017! If you want to become one of the four Ascended Minions added to our roster each year then you will have to campaign for it on tumblr for the time being. There are gifts in the works for those who Ascend!
I also want to just mention some highlights that happened since the last newsletter:
First the big news that Steve has returned to Magic after no new work published in the game in all of 2016! Steve got to illustrate one of the Kaladesh Masterpieces, Meekstone, which can be found in packs of Aether Revolt along with a new regular release card Night Market Guard!
If that wasn’t enough, Steve’s most prolific favorite Magic card, Liliana of the Veil, along with Soul Ransom, have been recently reprinted in Modern Masters 2017 Edition!
Steve has taken to Patreon with a monthly release schedule that seems to be holding strong for the moment. Cat, Devil, Nipper and Servo have already shipped and Angel is coming up soon!
Steve has announced a new client, Bushiroads, maker of Cardfight!! Vanguard and revealed a piece for the client he calls Queen and Defender.
Steve visited GP San Jose in January and has another GP visit at GP San Antonio next weekend! Steve will also be visiting the increasingly popular annual GP in Las Vegas for the third consecutive year in June!
