In 2005, Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art, sponsored
their first exhibition of works (selected from volumes 1-11) at the
Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators in New
York City. Apparently the show drew record-breaking crowds. I was
honored to be selected as one of the artists included in that show.
years later Spectrum is pleased to announce a second exhibition of
original work selected from the last four editions (#s 12-15) which
will be on display again at the Museum of American Illustration in New
York City. There will be approximately 150 pieces hanging side by side,
and I'm excited to say, one of my illustrations has been selected to be
included in this second, amazing, exhibition of art.
The piece that
was chosen this year was from volume 15, depicting a more sinister looking Luke
Skywalker. The art was commissioned for the package illustration for the Star Wars Miniatures
line, Legacy of the Force. The Skywalker Ranch was kind enough to
release this piece from their collection for the exhibition.
hoping to herd my ducks into a row this year, and be able to attend the
opening reception. I was told I really missed out last time. Would you
believe, out of all the places I've been on the planet, I've yet to set
foot in New York City? It may be time.
