Official Illustrations


I've illustrated artwork for a licensed Star Trek print available at an official Star Trek convention celebrating the 20th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation. A special guest at this Creation Entertainment event, I had the honor of autographing with actors Jonathan Frakes (William Riker) and Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi) this official Star Trek collectible for attending fans.

In addition, I was invited by Lucasfilm to be a guest at the Star Wars Celebration IV Art Show which brought together an incredible roster of talented artists who have contributed to the Star Wars galaxy. For this historic event, I illustrated artwork for a limited edition Star Wars 30th Anniversary lithograph. This high quality and official Star Wars print was limited to only 250 hand-numbered and autographed editions and available exclusively to Celebration IV attendees.
