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!

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..

Hi, I was just wondering if I would be able to use this image as official concept art for a Star Wars game that I am developing as I currently do not have an art department, you will of course be credited in the completed version of the game. Thank you for reading this :)

i always love to see clone troopers/storm troopers portrayed s bad asses because the poor guys don't get enough credit and that's a shame really. Really great work on all your pieces, but i think i found my favorite! Vader's fist! (501st)

You really capture the feel of all the military first person shooter games out there. I'm still waiting for Star Wars to put out another one.
