My New Illo Style...
« on: August 30, 2006, 10:01 PM »



I've been working as a full time illustrator for the last 12 years.  I've been developing a new "digital collage" style lately, and have decided to focus on Star Wars as subject matter.  There will be more of these soon.  Hope you like them.---Mike

I was lucky enough to see these in person, and they are really, really, REALLY cool! I can't wait to see the Vader and Boba Fett pieces completed. Any plans for a Darth Maul, Mike?

There are so many designs in the SW universe that lend themselves to this kind of illustration. Keep 'em coming!!!

Wow, these are very cool Mike.  I look forward to seeing more - I'm sure Vader and Fett will be awesome.  Hopefully you get to Han/Chewie at some point too :).  Very nice, you're quite talented.

I like 'em!

I know no one really likes to be compared with another artist, but when I first saw these I thought they looked like something from Eric Carle. Plus, I know you do children's books and so does Carle, so the comparison was a natural one. And that guy's made like a gazillion bucks from his art, so you're in good company.
