I am over the moon to announce that I have been selected as one of 40 artists to contribute to and attend the Star Wars Celebration Art Show in Anaheim, California next April! If you're not familiar with Star Wars Celebration, here's a description from the official page:
Long story short, it's a pretty big deal for Star Wars fans.
The Art Show is a showcase of limited edition art prints, created specifically for the convention by a jury-selected group of artists. To be considered for the show, artists must have already had experience creating work for Lucasfilm or a Lucasfilm licensee. After the initial screening of work samples, artists were then asked to submit an original concept for the show. Concepts were judged by a handful of some of the top talent currently working at Lucasfilm and Disney, and from a massive pool of submissions, 40 concepts were chosen to be completed for the show.
And one of those 40 was mine! It's really hard to believe that my work will be showcased with the likes of other amazing Star Wars artists like Adam Hughes, Alex Ross, and Tsuneo Sanda. Unfortunately, I can't show any work in progress or say what my concept is, but I hope fans will find as much enjoyment in it as I do in creating it!

See you in Anaheim!
