A couple of months ago the Topps Art Director informed me that – unbeknownst to me – both LucasFilm and Bad Robot chose me (squeeee!) to be among a small group of artists who have been working on the exclusive “The Force Awakens” (a separate set from the “Journey to the Force Awakens”) trading card set to be released by Topps Entertainment. Not an easy task to complete and very limited in what we could all use, but soooooooooooooo much fun.
We are not yet allowed to show what we did, but I imagine it won’t be long. Large numbers were required for this, as we were a small group, but I can tell you that the others have done an incredible job, and I can only hope that my cards will be acceptable for collectors.
The universe of Star Wars has been part of my life since I was 14 years old, and this was a thrill for me!!! I’m off to see the new movie on the 18th with my two now-young adult kids and I can’t wait.
