CVI: Countdown Day 8

Posted By Chris on August 15, 2012

There are 34 artists attending Celebration VI which means 34 exclusive art prints to hunt down. Today, we continue our Artist Spotlight series with Russell Walks & Doug Wheatley.



Artist: Russell Walks
Title: Star Wars: 1937
Size: 36" x 24"
Paper: 180 lb Matte Paper
Price: $35
Edition Size: 250
Available at booth #408


Russell Walks made his first Star Wars art in 1977 on the way home from the movie theater. In the years since, he's created countless posters, trading cards and book covers, and, occasionally, has even received money for his efforts. This is his fifth Celebration.



Artist: Doug Wheatley
Title: The Bad Guys
Size: 18" x 24"
Paper: 95# cover Topkote Dull
Price: $60
Edition Size: 250


Doug Wheatley has been working on various Star Wars publications with Randey Stradley of Dark Horse Comics, for about ten years, his other clients include Marvel, DC, Warner Bro., Acclaim, Image, 20th Century Fox and Black Bull comics. His works include Superman, Batman, Aliens, Conan, Blade the Vampire Hunter, X-Men, Wolverine, The Punisher, and The Hulk. Doug has also worked as a storyboard artist on the movie Superman Returns (2006) (uncredited).

Doug's books are published in several languages around the globe. Doug had his first European signing at the Virgin Record Store in Paris, France and continues to travel to comic conventions in Europe and North America. Doug was nominated for a Harvey Award in 1997 and for a Joe Shuster Award in 1007. Doug was awarded the Toulousse, "People's Choice Award" in 2012, in France.

Doug says: "I'm not sure if there is a story behind this print, but here goes. I wasn't sure I would be able to go to Celebration, I didn't think my schedule would allow me to go. My partner in crime on the Star Wars Dark Times book over at Dark Horse comics, Randy Stradley, convinced me the I should make the trip, and so began the thought process on what I should submit to Lucasfilm for my print. While chatting with Randy about Dark Times, he came up with a great idea to have Darth Vader looming over Das Jennir riding his beastie from Star Wars Dark Times: Out of the Wilderness. I immediately began thumbnailing the print in between my paid gigs. I did a painted sample and sent it to Lucasfilm for approval. The print was approved, but after a few conversations and some serious thought, I felt I needed to do something different, something that had more of a relationship to the Films and the Dark Times era, and that's when the idea evolved into what has become my print, "THE BAD GUYS" "The Bad Guys" celebrates the bad guys of the prequels, From the Emperor to the Count. It was great fun to paint!

All pre-orders will come with a customized sketch along with a signature. I will be selling original art, mostly Star Wars Episode 3, some Conan covers, etc. and I will be doing sketches. The cost will break down like this:

Quick headshot sketch - $20
Head shot and partial bust - $60
Full figure - $100
Either head shot or full figure with background can be negotiated providing there is time."

REMINDER:

Today is the final day that you can pre-order the exclusive prints for the artists appearing in Artist Alley at Celebration VI.
