Back in mid 2015 I was lucky enough to get invited to participate in one of the Topps Star Wars card sets. I did over 100 full color cards featuring characters from the first 6 movies, Clone Wars and Rebels that are available now a specialty inserts in the Journey to The Force Awakens hobby boxes.
Here’s what the culminated 100 sketch cards look like.
I’ll be out at my home store Madness Games & Comics this Saturday, May 2nd for Free Comic Book Day. I’ll have new art prints for sale not yet available in the online store and will be taking commissions and doing free head sketches for kids under 12.
Featured guests include Jake Llyod (Anakin Skywalker), Ray Park (Darth Maul), and Peter Mayhew (Chewbaca) plus over 25 thousand free comics to give away. We’ll also be selling this awesome FCBD tee shirt that I designed and that you can only get during the event.
My buddy and frequent DCC collaborator Devin Pike asked me to contribute the key art for this years Dallas Comic Con Shindig after-party extravaganza… so here’s Captain Mal in his underwear in a Barcolounger playing the classic MTV game show Remote Control. If we can get this to happen in real life my year will be made!
Captain Tightpants here will appear on poster art and on the official VIP Shindig Badges. The Shindig starts Saturday, May 30th at 7PM, tickets available here.
One of the great benefits of social media is getting to meet and interact with other illustrators, designers and creative professionals. Once of the great benefits of being a shameless self-promoter is not being afraid to ask when you see a possible opportunity come along. And so thanks to my internet buddy Steven Russel Black I’m now a semi-regular guest artist on the new site EveryDayOriginal.com.
EveryDayOriginal’s goal is to bring small, one of kind works of art to collectors of all types by offering them at affordable prices. Nothing is priced over $500, and there are some amazing works there priced at half that cost.
Currently I have a few pieces up. My favorite, Dapper Dan, is still looking for his forever home.
I’m finally getting back into some long overdue commissions that piled up after the recent death of my father in January. We were very close and on top of taking care of his estate it was an emotional roller coaster that left no energy for anything but the bare necessities of life. Thankfully he always taught me that despite being in pain “life goes on”, and so in that spirit I’m hitting these overdue commissions. Hard. First up is Princess Leia Organa, sketched up for the daughter of a childhood friend. Below are some work-in-progress shots and a timelapse of the piece from my Instagram account.
