Description I've been collecting Kenner Star Wars figures since 1978, and in tribute I've been drawing portraits of them with Pigma Micron pens and Prismacolor pencils. My two favorite bounty hunters are 4-LOM (short for 'for love of money') and Zuckuss (originally dubbed Tuckuss), in part because one is clearly a droid version of the other. To add to the confusion, their names were swapped on the cardbacks, so for years I thought Zuckuss was 4-LOM and vice versa. These figures came with two of the coolest guns in the Kenner line, and I'm pleased I never lost them.

I love the textures that emerge from simple black ink on white Bristol, and that's where most of my time goes, but I'm happy to play around with ink washes, markers, and colored pencils. A lot of my inspiration is drawn from pop culture (especially Star Wars and vintage roleplaying games); when I'm feeling more serious I like to look at architecture and nature. My mom's been an artist ever since I was born; I guess something rubbed off.
I've been a photographer longer than I've been an illustrator, and some of my favorite prints are available in my photography gallery. If you'd like to request any others I've included a link to my Flickr page.
