Star Wars Galaxy 5 Trading Card #39


Did two cards for the new Star Wars Galaxy 5 trading card set from Topps just released a week or so ago.

You never know what's going on off camera while you're watching a movie, do ya?

This one is my favorite. When I tried to get a translation from Jawanese it was really tough but a friend of mine has a friend and he has a friend that spoke the language so whew!

Otto "The Toolbox" Wheeler

It's been a really really long time since I last posted anything here. The last half of 2008 and so far 2009 have been really interesting, things like surgery, death (not mine) lots of waiting on just about everything, changes in that waiting, lost touch with a few folks, got behind on a lot of personal projects, blah, blah, blah, blah, and blah....

Anyway, so I do have lots of new things in terms of art coming up, like a new Star Wars card illo for the new Galaxy Series card set Topps is doing, so stay tuned if you're interested.

I'll also be starting another blog related to the car culture and art scene....

In the meantime, here's something I dug up recently that I did for the Road Rats die-cast car line for Jada Toys and the figures they once offered with the line.

I think this guy and the is my favorite out of the batch, which they did but not in this semi realistic styling which looking back, I wish they would have maybe went for, dunno....

Stealth Monkeys

Here's one for a couple of neighbor kids that live next door, Aldair & Ivan. They know I'm an artist and recently visited the blog hoping to see some new stuff.

It's a trading card from days ago (Okay, not exactly new) when I was delving in the comics biz...

The Stealth Micro-Chip Monkeys (I like to call them the "Stealth Monkeys), Mizaru, Kikazaru & Iwazaro. Futuristic astronauts with enhanced intelligence, robotic suits of armor and of course they fight giant robots, horrendous evil aliens, bio-tech blunders of every sort and a whole array of monsters (It says so on the back of the card)

Well okay, there was a whole set of cards from other artist and we all illustrated our own creations for the set, which were to become comic books.
But some joker ran away with the company's money and I understand split to S. America..

Don't know if anyone ever went after the guy or caught him... Oh well...

Greedo Shot First?

Just found this card with my signature from back when I did this Greedo trading card for Topps, so I hope no one minds my posting it again, this scan shows a little more detail, so I figured "what the heck"...here ya go.... and for the Illustration Friday folks I guess this is a sacrifice or sorts? Probably not, but someone is getting slaughtered anyway.....

Star Wars Sketch Cards

Here's a sample of the sketch cards I did for Topps Star Wars Heritage series. The series included actual sketches from quite a few other artist and were inserted randomly in a pack so that you had the possibility of owning an actual piece of art. If I remember right I did over 500 sketches, some artist did over a thousand (believe me 500 was enough for me) Fun project....

Godzilla - Japanese Monster

Here comes TROUBLE! My favorite Japanese monster is GODZILLA! Here's a painting I did for my own amusement, based on the 1964 version. My niece owns this one and that reminds me, I have to get on it and paint some more monsters as she keeps telling me...

Shark Fink!

Kids call your Mama 'cause if you see one of these your gonna need help! I did this one out of my love for the art of Basil Wolverton and Big Daddy Roth's Rat Fink.
It's a nice shark if you like this kind of thing. I will do a t-shirt design of this soon...
Update: I did a shirt design and here's the link

Favorite

Talk about a sprout out of control, good thing Hercules is around...
This is an old favorite of mine, a collaboration with artist Earl Norem. He's probably best known for his work on Conan. I did a search on Google but could not find if he has a site up. I did find lot's of scans from his "He-man" and "Transformers" days along with some of his "GI-Joe work. The best thing about this piece is I got to keep the original. Earl did Hercules and I did the background and all the cool skulls along with the monster I can't remember the name of.... oh well.

Like I Said....

..... no particular order. Here's a vector piece done for an automotive accessories company, they do the floormats, seat covers, steering wheel covers etc.. The company changed hands (from Pennzoil to Shell) and this line got dropped, otherwise you probably would have seen this all over the place.
This was a fun piece regardless.
