All About Character
It doesn’t matter that fictional characters are fictional.
It doesn’t matter that we can’t speak with or physically interact with them.
What does matter, is that they have made an impact in our lives. And that makes them real.
Like you, I’m enthralled by the dimension those characters bring to stories from other worlds, galaxies, or multi-verses, whether they be on the big screen or on small pages.
I suppose I could sum up the source of my inspiration with the Hero’s Journey (Learn more about the Hero’s Journey here).
These stories have resonated with people for generations, and I’m no exception. It’s the fantastic, supernatural or futuristic sci-fi stories, yes. It’s the characters and their struggles, certainly.
Most of all, though, it’s those characters overcoming seemingly impossible tasks with thoughtfulness, grit and determination, and coming out the other side improved versions of themselves.
It’s the modern manifestations of this Hero’s Journey that inspires me the most; Superman, Batman, Spider-man, Doctor Who, and of course, Star Wars!…to name a few.
If you’re like me, your love for the Star Wars, Marvel and DC universes is known throughout the galaxy, yet the posters and merchandise available for the fly-by-night consumer lack the quality you, as a loyal fan, deserve.
It is that quality I put into each of my pieces; from the start of an illustration through to the final product.
My gallery quality Giclée prints are printed on 100% cotton acid and lignin-free archival paper with archival inks, guaranteed to last well over 100 years.
May the Force be with you!
