My friend and fellow artist Charlie Athanas posted this on Facebook, and I thought you might be interested to see a piece I did at a WildClaw Theatre fundraising event called “Dance of the Demented” in 2010. As you will note, I did a much looser style of painting here and I was pleased with the result. Let me know what you think of it?
Here’s the original photograph:
And here’s the painting (a black and white version of it):
And here it is in color (sorry for the angle of the image):

In my garage cleaning frenzy, I’ve discovered a lot of fun items and toys (many of which I’m going to be selling online, so I will keep you posted), but this particular one fascinated my wife, who had no idea I fully rendered this Star Wars vehicle for Lucasfilm for the Dark Empire 2 cover based on an interior design by Cam Kennedy. A fan at Celebration Europe came up to me and gave me 2 of the actual toys created from my creature design & comic book cover art, so here are some images of them:
The cover I’m holding is actually a European edition that was also discovered during my garage cleaning frenzy – I’m unsure which language this is in.
And here’s a side view of the toy:
If you are the fan from Celebration Europe who gave me these wonderful toys, please speak up so I can give you proper credit publicly – I thank you so much.
