In 2005, Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art, sponsored their first exhibition of works (selected from volumes 1-11) at the Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators in New York City. Apparently the show drew record-breaking crowds. I was honored to be selected as one of the artists included in that show.
Two years later Spectrum is pleased to announce a second exhibition of original work selected from the last four editions (#s 12-15) which will be on display again at the Museum of American Illustration in New York City. There will be approximately 150 pieces hanging side by side, and I'm excited to say, one of my illustrations has been selected to be included in this second, amazing, exhibition of art.
The piece that was chosen this year was from volume 15, depicting a more sinister looking Luke Skywalker. The art was commissioned for the package illustration for the Star Wars Miniatures line, Legacy of the Force. The Skywalker Ranch was kind enough to release this piece from their collection for the exhibition.I'm hoping to herd my ducks into a row this year, and be able to attend the opening reception. I was told I really missed out last time. Would you believe, out of all the places I've been on the planet, I've yet to set foot in New York City? It may be time.
