This was designed to be part of a triptych Bond on the middle panel, M on the left hand panel and Silva on the right hand panel.

Unfortunately, this was one of those great projects that for numerous reasons, didn't work out.

Because a new project I am planning on doing will require me to work at a slightly smaller scale than usual, I wanted to experiment to find the ideal size for me to be able to work and not feel inhibited. 
This new piece of Obi-Wan was done to a size of 8 1/2 x 11 3/4 inches and its great.

I love the personal feeling your art invokes, like the classic movie posters.

Will you be attending Perth supernova 2015?

Thanks Will. Yes I will be in Perth and in Sydney. I'm giving an art Masterclass in both venues as well as being at my table during the day.
