Star Wars Galaxy Series 5

My latest news: Topps will be releasing their latest card set Star Wars Galaxy Series 5 early 2010. I will be doing sketch cards again (100 cards) but the big news is that I will have a base card included this time around! I almost had it accepted for Galaxy 4 but because of circumstances they could not fit it in - but good things come to those who wait!
As an added bonus (for me) they used my art on their sell sheet to advertise the set! This came as an unexpected and pleasant surprise to me and I am very grateful. You can see it here in the top left hand corner of Boba Fett vs. Stormtroopers in their concept design outfits (note the lightsabers). I will post a larger version when the release date is nearer.

The Empire Muggs Back

I recently was asked by Lucasfilm to customize a Mighty Muggs figure for their project "The Empire Muggs Back: A Mighty Good Cause" to be auctioned by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I decided instead of doing a character I'll paint a Star Wars scene from the movie - two scenes to be exact, one on each side of the character. One side is the scene of Luke outside his homestead on Tatooine watching the binary suns setting, the other is a view inside the Millenium Falcon cockpit as we see Tie Fighters attack the ship. These were displayed along with many other artists' designs at the Lucasfilm Pavilion at San Diego Comic Con last weekend! Have a look at the pics I took there.

This auction goes on from July 31-August 14, 2009. More information may be found at www.theempiremuggsback.com
