Finally, an art gallery we can all appreciate!
Part of the fun of the Pokémon Trading Card Game is taking a look at the artwork on the cards themselves. Now there’s a whole new way to appreciate Pokémon TCG art, thanks to the Pokémon Trading Card Game: Online Illustration Exhibition.
From August 10th to October 22nd, 2022 Pokémon fans can enjoy an online exhibit with three card categories: Life, History, and Artist. As indicated by the name, Life provides a glimpse of the habitats and routines of Pokémon; History traces the evolution of Pokémon TCG illustrations since their beginnings in 1996; and Artist shows the different approaches that artists take to capturing a single Pokémon.
Want a closer look at the artwork? Select the card you’re interested in to better view details you might not previously have noticed. And to get a better understanding of what the artist was thinking when they created the card, the exhibition features comments from the creators who designed each piece on display. With 50 artists each commenting on one of their illustrations, it’s a rare and exciting opportunity to learn more about the talented minds behind the art. The exhibition includes pieces from artists including Megumi Mizutani, Akira Egawa, and many more.
Once the Pokémon Trading Card Game: Online Illustration Exhibition opens, we’ll be sure to revisit this story and share the news!
