Star Wars

With my recent Star Wars cover appearing on the Dark Horse website, for Legacy ep 8, I can also say that I am now working on some interior art for the same series.

My first, as yet unscheduled book is now almost complete, and over the weekend I received two more episodes to draw, probably books 9 and 10 in the same series. The painting experiments have been shelved for the moment, and I'm now getting back into sf.

While I'll admit I'm no big fan of the recent films, I enjoyed the original Star Wars film when it was released back in 1977, although I had no idea just how much it would re-define the whole field of popular science fiction for the film and comic buying public. For me Star Wars was, and still is a Western that just happens top be set in the future, and luckily the saga has been a visual treat thanks to some of the best designers in the business. personally I'm a huge fan of another old ex-2000AD artist Dermot Power, and if I can bring a quarter of the creative imagination to my comic art as he displayed in his work on Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones all be a very happy little camper.

Nice stuff, Colin... as ever. Are you colouring yourself on this?

I thought hard about it, and tried some stuff, but I just don't have the techniques. I'd be forced to cut corners on the B&W, and didn't want to.

But one day.... I'm going to crack this colour thing.
