Hi guys! This is a new set of 12 artworks I did for the new Star Wars Essential Reader's Companion. Although the dateline for this book was a lot tighter it nevertheless was an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

As with the last book I will be posting them in the order of sequence as it appears in the Reader's Companion. Enjoy!

This was another piece that was done purely for the fans. It's from Force Heretic of the New Jedi Order series and it shows the Jedi Expedition led by Grand Master Luke Skywalker exchanging cordial gestures with former enemy and renown Imperial ace pilot, Baron Soontir Fel. He's one of my favorite EU characters mostly because he's an upstanding Imp and the Empire's equivalent of Alliance ace, Wedge Antilles, whom I love.

Fel here is part of the Chiss Expansionary Defense Force but was also formerly a commanding officer in Thrawn's Empire of the Hand before its dissolution....or absorption by the Chiss Ascendancy. The Jedis are on the Chiss homeworld of Csilla and they are on an expedition in search of the mysterious sentient planet, Zonama Sekot, which they believe is the key to defeating the Yuuzhan Vong.

This next scene is from Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader. Vader and his 501st Legion battles Wookies and Jedis Siadem Forte and Iwo Kulka and just plain being a badass!

I have another one for you Mara fan's. This one is from the first book of the New Jedi Order series called Vector Prime and it shows Mara Jade dueling Yomin Carr. She's the first Jedi to ever encounter, duel and defeat a Yuuzhan Vong in single combat, albeit with great difficulty. This was an enemy unlike any other the Jedi has faced before and one that is formidable even to an experienced Jedi like Jade Skywalker. On top of looking like a pure badass the one thing that makes Yuuzhan Vong cool to me is their use of living bio-weapons like thud bugs (thrown projectiles) and the amazing amphistaff, which is a whip, sword, spear, and venom shooter all rolled into one and its apparently so tough that it can resist a lightsaber cut.

I think some of you may have already seen this image already as it was one of the preview images from the Reader's Companion but I'd like to mention that this is the updated version of the one floating around the net right now. I made some changes after some sharp-eyed fans pointed out that her lightsaber was the wrong kind and so I gave her Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber, which is more consistent with canon. I also noticed that Wookieepedia has the old version of this image. If anyone would be kind enough to update it with this version that would be great!

Painted over a year and a half ago, this was my first Mara Jade piece for FFG's Star Wars games. It actually appeared in the Beta book for those few who were able to grab one, but now with the Balance of the Force expansion she's finally in the LCG. I still remember reading the Thrawn trilogy when they came out, and she's been one of my favorite characters ever since.

Okay, so start playing the Imperial March on youtube, come back, and then look at it all over again for maximum effect. This image of Darth Vader and his loyal snowtroopers is from Fantasy Flight's upcoming "Star Wars: The Card Game," one of the products being released as a part of their new Star Wars line. If all goes well, I should be able to post some more soon!

If you're interested, there's more where that came from:

Fantasy Flight has released more images from the upcoming Balance of the Force expansion (the one with the Mara Jades in it), and today by request I'm previewing the art for Emperor Palpatine. You can read more about the set at www.fantasyflightgames.com/edg…, and if you snoop around the description page you may see a preview of art to come...

Now that Galaxies is officially defunct, I thought it safe to post some of my favourite illustrations here for posterity sake..!

Working on this franchise for close to 2 years really helped me grow as a creative and allowed me to explore many aspects of the craft-- its not often you get to play the role of illustrator, story-teller and designer within a single commission. It was truly rewarding in hindsight and more often that not, a very humbling experience when you witness the sheer quality and passion of other fellow creatives working on the same project, really inspires you to stretch yourself beyond the usual bounds!

Hard to see where you're going in a firefight with those blinders for a visor... ;) Still love scout troopers all the same.

I always try to nab the trooper cards before anyone else. :) I recall being very taken by the bleached and cross-processed art direction of Black Hawk Down and had to do a few cards in a similar feel. What better than with one involving rappelling special forces stormies..

I was asked to edit out the body parts in the background.. ;) (Note the unofficial indirect-fire wrist rockets being deployed)

Another piece for the Star Wars LCG. This is actually my most recent one, just spoilered on FFG's website.

One very interesting facet of painting Star Wars game art is that we get to paint scenes that were never filmed or that were filmed differently, sort of an extra 'Director's cut'.

This was a very fun job... But quite a challenge as well. I had 2 months to do 39 illustrations for this book.

While speed is a strength that normally lands me a lot of my work, I still want to do as best as I can. It can become quite a challenge. I pushed VERY hard on this assignment to do my absolute best-- even having to work it around my regular freelance work. But I pulled it off... And I am happy with the way it came out.

Now this is something I'm SUPER pumped about. Star Wars was such an inspiration to me as a kid and I remember thinking time and time again "I wish I could do Star Wars art!". Well, whaddaya know. I get to do Star Wars art! Fantasy Flight Games is releasing their new Star Wars living card game soon and a couple of my cards were spoiled at the previews at GenCon. The first card I did for the game was none other than Darth Vader. I'm really humbled that my art director felt comfortable enough giving me the task to create art for the most badass sci-fi villain of all time. Rarely do we get to see Vader dealing with rebel scum in such a direct way, so I'm sure you can imagine how giddy I was when I got the initial prompt.

For the recently announced "Onslaught at Arda" adventure supplement to Fantasy Flight Games' "Star Wars: Age of Rebellion" role playing game. I'm pretty sure my fear of falling would prevent me from being any sort of useful stormtrooper. :)

a WIP of a Darth Revan companion piece to Vader in the Galaxies promo. Strangely enough this is the first Darth Revan I've done since I first created him for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic all those years ago. May do more in future, some Sith Troopers, maybe even a Darth Malak rethink. For the record I loathe the original Malak design, and thankfully wasn't responsible for it, but Revan I thought turned out well

WIP of most everyone's fave SW bounty hunter. Definitely inspired by the spirit and energy of Mike Capprotti's killer BF piece and happy to acknowledge it. Playing around in the Star Wars pool, something I haven't done since I worked on Knights of the Old Republic at Bioware lo those many years ago
