I drew 50 full-color sketch cards for the upcoming STAR WARS MASTERWORK set for Topps. I'll be posting individual samples on my art Instagram, so if you're interested in seeing that, be sure to follow and/or bookmark: instagram.com/grant_gould_art
I hope you're all staying warm and doing well. It's been a busy past few months for me – I became a foster parent, and thus I've sort of become a full-time foster daddy. But I'm still tackling the illustration stuff every chance I get – still plugging away at Blade Raiders projects, Wolves of Odin, and others. I know it's a slow crawl, but better late than never, right? :) Talk to you soon!

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. :)

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!
