The US artist, a grad­u­ate of the Amer­i­can Academy of Art, trav­elled to Italy as an ex­change stu­dent and fell in love with Re­nais­sance and Baroque art.

“I con­sider my­self for­tu­nate to be part of the sci-fi and fan­tasy art com­mu­nity, where men­tors con­tin­u­ously chal­lenge me to cul­ti­vate my skills,” says Lu­cas.

The Chicago-based free­lance il­lus­tra­tor be­gan his ca­reer cre­at­ing con­cepts for col­lectibles com­pany the Brad­ford Ex­change, be­fore mov­ing into card game and lit­er­ary art.
