If you keep up with me on any social media it’ll come as no surprise that I recently gave up the freelance lifestyle and took a job at Bottle Rocket Studios, an iOS/Android application studio in Addison. After a 6 week stint as a contractor they made me an offer I couldn’t refuse and I came on board as a full time Art Director in the UX/UI department.
As well as being voted one of the best places to work in Dallas several times over they also nurture an amazing culture of creativity, freedom and personal responsibility. And they also have a shit-ton of star wars fanatics working here.

Here it is! The massive Star Wars piece I've been working on for the past few weeks is off to its new home and finally able to be shown publicly. I hope you guys enjoy.

Which brings me to the piece of Star Wars art above. Our Founder and CEO (probably the biggest Star Wars fan on-staff) decided to surprise the entire office with a free showing of The Force Awakens on opening day.
In return our internal promotions team LIFT decided to surprise him and the entire staff with some original art for the office to commemorate the occasion. I was asked to make something large and Star Wars themed that could serve as a both a sign of appreciation and as a reminder of an awesome day spent with awesome folks.
