Rush was one of the pioneers of the game’s art design. "His work has appeared on many of the most powerful and memorable cards in the game's history, inspiring countless artists, players, and fans. His laughter will always be missed, but the joy he brought to the game will live on with smiling players around the world," said a statement on the Wizards of the Coast site.
"People should know that not only was Chris a prolific illustrator, but a talented designer and art director as well," said Tom Wanerstrand in the Wizards of the Coast memorials. "His work can be seen everywhere from Magic's logo and mana symbols to other Wizards of the Coast games like Netrunner and Guillotine."
Christopher is survived by his two daughters Sierra Troi Rush and Madeline Rush. A memorial fund has been set up to help with final expenses on GoFundMe.
