Star Wars Celebration V Countdown: Day 18

Posted By Chris on July 25, 2010

Jeff Carlisle

From JeffCarlisle.com:

Born in the town of Shelby, OH (Birthplace of the seamless tube industry in America), Jeff Carlisle grew up in the bustling metropolis of Columbus, OH. There, he attended public school without being shot or stabbed and continued his education at the prestigious Columbus College of Art and Design, to whom he swears he will pay back his tuition.

A year or so after graduating from Art School, Jeff submitted art to the Star Wars fan site TheForce.Net, which resulted in a dedicated fan art gallery there and enough courage to actually talk to his peers. In the year 2000, A chance meeting with acclaimed fantasy artist and children's book author Tony DiTerlizzi resulted in a new friendship for both and persistent nagging from DiTerlizzi to "get in the game," which led to the 2000 GenCon game fair, which led to his first industry job: programming Binary Load-Lifters, er, drawing Starships, Droids and Aliens for Star Wars Gamer magazine.

After moving for a short time to San Diego California to work on a video game, Jeff returned to Columbus -- where he lives with his wife, Lisa, and their white hellcat, Snow.

After six years of freelance illustration and concept design, he has worked with a number of clients including: Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG), COSI Studios, Decipher, Goodman Games/Sword and Sorcery, Green Ronin Publishing, Lucasfilm Ltd., Paizo Publishing, Poop House Reilly, Presto Studios/Microsoft Game Studios, The Scarefactory, Inc., Topps and Wizards of the Coast.

Now, people actually pay him to do what he does for free on his own time, but don't tell anyone--that's a secret.

Dave Dorman

From DaveDorman.com:

Dave Dorman is an Eisner award-winning illustrator who has been working as a professional artist since 1979. He is best known for his photo-realistic renderings of action and fantasy subjects.

Dave was born in Michigan in 1958. The child of a military family, he lived in various places, including the Azores and Washington DC.

After only two years of college, Dorman enrolled in the Joe Kubert School of Comic Art. After one year and the realization that he would not learn the painting techniques in which he was interested, he quit the school. With the loving support of his parents, Dave spent the next few years teaching himself his, now well-known, oil-painting style.

He has done artwork for comic, book, and game publishers, including The Batman for DC Comics and the Indiana Jones and Star Wars series' for Dark Horse Comics. In addition he has done a wide range of book and magazine covers. Some of these include the Aliens paperback series, the Lone Wolf series, the Surfing Samurai Robots series and many other single book covers. His work is also showcased in the Bram Stoker nominated, illustrated novel Dead Heat from MoJo Press, and a book collection of his art, Star Wars: The Art of Dave Dorman.

Recent trading card art includes the Star Wars Galaxy sets, Universal Monsters' Incredible Shrinking Man subset, a Robin subset in the Batman: Saga of the Dark Knight trading card series, a complete set of 98 painted trading cards for the Skybox Masterseries: Malibu Ultraverse, nine cards in the Skybox/DC Masterseries, a 25 card subset in the Skybox Masterseries: Creators Edition and artwork for the accompanying CD-ROM game, and a card set of his art called The Best of Dave Dorman: Chromium.

Aliens: Tribes, an award-winning illustrated novel featuring 24 of his full paintings is available in hardcover and has been released as a trade paperback.

Dorman's work is also now available as a series of popular, limited edition, Star Wars lithographs from Rolling Thunder Graphics. His many continuing projects include the ongoing Young Jedi Knights and Han Solo series' of paperbacks, and toy design for the Aliens 4: Resurrection movie.
