Our own Bonnie Burton sat down and chatted for a bit with famed British Star Wars artist JAKe over on the main site.
See an excerpt from Bonnie's interview below, and then click here for the full read.
Q: "What types of Star Wars related projects have you done as an artist?"
A: "So far, Lucasfilm have mainly commissioned me to do T-shirt designs but my work goes into the Lucas style guides and has appeared on different kinds of merchandise including badges, fridge magnets, bags, track tops, kids' pajamas, stickers, lick-and-stick tattoos, candy eggs, mouse pads, U.S. postage stamps and who knows what else. A lot of it is U.S.-only so I don't always get to see everything it's used on. I designed limited edition 30th Anniversary lithographs for Celebration IV and Celebration Europe and my work was used across all the Celebration IV passes.
Last summer I did a lithograph for the 30th Anniversary in Japan. It's also been used to illustrate articles for Star Wars Insider magazine in a feature about Ben Burtt's sound effects. There's a store in the UK called Next and they're currently putting out some of my Star Wars art on kids' wear. I also got to work on some Indiana Jones projects for Lucasfilm."

Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
