A piece I did over the Christmas break simply because I wanted to. I ran out of Red Copics back then and only remembered to get replacements today. 

Copic Markers and Prismacolor pencils on white, A3 Acid-Free Paper (approx 11.5 x 16.5 inches)

Ralph McQuarrie, An Illustrative Life Lobby Poster

I am delighted to be able to share the final artwork I did for the Ralph McQuarrie An Illustrative Life Lobby Poster. The image is a romanticised version of the Star Wars Design legend's studio that is intended to celebrate his legacy, life and serve as a salute to the man who visually created the Star Wars universe.
The poster featuring this artwork will be available from the Art of Ralph McQuarrie booth at Star Wars Celebration next month.

For those interested, the Fett figurine that I included in Ralph's studio was his prototype of the bounty hunter that was refined by Joe Johnston into the character we know so well. This particular piece was created by the incredible team at Sideshow Collectables.

Gouache paint and Prismacolor pencil on MDF board, 24 x 36 inches.
