Meesa Talkin' Clone Wars

Things get super hot and steamy (Gungan-style) on RebelForce Radio's latest episode of CLONE WARS DECLASSIFIED, featuring Jason Swank, Paul Bateman, Tricia Barr, and myself discussing the "Disappeared" two-parter. Click here to check it out or download it on iTunes.

March Randomness

Hi, everyone! Figured I'd better post an update. Been swamped with work: the STAR WARS: REBELS kids' book, my Blade Raiders novel, getting 'Wolves of Odin' ready for Comixology, starting work on NEW 'Wolves of Odin' stuff (I know some of you have been waiting a loooong time for that), new Topps cards, RPG stuff, and a million other little things. It's easy to get overwhelmed, but I'm pluggin' away. :) THANK YOOUUUUU to the many people who are very patient with me.

Once again, I'll leave you with some miscellaneous art from the past few weeks. I've been making a point to give myself 20-60 minutes each day to just doodle, draw something for myself, shake out the cobwebs. It's so easy to get bogged down by work and feel the pressure of guilt and self-doubt, blah blah blah, it's important to try and keep this art thing fun and somewhat spontaneous, ya know? Life can't be all work and no play, even when work and play both involve putting lines on paper. :)

Be sure to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr. Have a great Spring, everyone!

Attack of the Clone Wars

With Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the new "Lost Missions" episodes hitting Netflix this week, and because a huge number of the people who follow my art are Clone Wars fans, I thought it'd be fun to list my 6 favorite episodes from each season, listed in the order they aired.

It was tough to narrow it down to just 6 faves. There are a lot of episodes that I enjoyed that aren't listed below. Yes, I admit that there are some less-than-awesome episodes in each season too (*coughJarJar* *coughPadmePolitics*), but, man, when this show gets it right, they really get it right.

If you're a person who has NEVER watched the Clone Wars and you want to spend less than an hour seeing what all the fuss is about, I'd recommend Season 2's "Landing at Point Rain" and then the episode directly following it, "Weapons Factory." In my opinion, those two episodes are when the show really started getting into its groove, and it's a great jumping-on point, so new viewers wouldn't feel too lost. Just my opinion, as always. :) Enjoy!

SEASON 1: FAVORITE EPISODES
Ambush
Rookies
Duel of the Droids
Cloak of Darkness
Lair of Grievous
Trespass

SEASON 2: FAVORITE EPISODES
Children of the Force

DRAW STAR WARS REBELS

I'm excited to announce that I'm illustrating the upcoming "DRAW STAR WARS REBELS" kids' book based on the new show! About five years ago, I illustrated "DRAW STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS" for Lucasfilm & Klutz, so it's an honor to be working with them again on a similar project. :) When I find out the release date, I'll let you guys know, so you can run to your local bookstore and grab a copy!

Some Recent Stuff

Just a quick update. I've been behind on things, thanks to a nasty two-month flu & sinus infection (ugh!), but I'm still around. Trying to catch up again. :) Been working hard on my Blade Raiders novel and it's going great.

Just a reminder that you can follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr. If you haven't been following me over in those places, here's a look at some of the recent drawings I've posted.
