Pablo Hidalgo’s Star Wars: The Essential Reader’s Companion has been pushed back to October 2, 2012 (was August 21). According to Star Wars Books, this is to allow the artists time to complete the 100 plus painted scenes and nearly 50 character portraits. If the art is as good as the pieces in The Essential Guide to Warfare, then it’ll definitely be worth the wait.

John Jackson Miller has posted the production notes for Knights of the Old Republic: War #3 on his site Faraway Press. John makes an interesting comparison between Dorjander Kace and real life historical figure John Brown. He also points out that this adventure for Zayne is his Jedi trial: a test to see if he can triumph on his own. As usual, John includes some fun trivia. It’s worth checking out.

MintInBox Interview with Chris Trevas

March 19, 2012 at 7:02 am | Posted in Art, Interview, Star Wars News | Leave a comment

MintInBox.Net posted an interview with Star Wars artist Chris Trevas. The interview covers Chris’ background, how he got started in Star Wars, his techniques, his favorite project, and a wide range of other topics. It’s a fairly long interview and worth checking out. There are also plenty of pictures to go along with the interview.

Do you have any preferred artist amongst others? Maybe a specific illustration of him?

CT: Ralph McQuarrie and Drew Struzan were my two biggest influences starting out as an artist. I grew up admiring their work as a Star Wars fan and I’ve been fortunate to meet them both during my career. All my friends in the Star Wars art community continue to inspire me as well.
