Society of Illustrators and A New Job



I recently received word that my work entitled "Pursuit" for the unpublished category will be included in the Society of Illustrators Annual 53 next year. The piece was originally inspired by my love of the novel 1984 and early '70s sci-fi (posted here earlier.)

Today was also my first day as a Concept Designer at Lucasfilm Animation. They play things close to the chest there, so there won't be many(any?) posts relating to work there, but I'm very excited about my new gig.

*The image above is the official poster for Society of Illustrators 53...I didn't do it, but I sure like it!
