Some Great Star Wars Art at Stan Lee’s Comikaze 2014

Last month, I attended Stan Lee’s Comikaze event in Los Angeles and I couldn’t help but notice a lot of Star Wars art, which was great.  Here are fifteen artists whose Star Wars artwork I enjoyed there, although I do not mean to say that if someone was omitted from this list, I did not enjoy their work – I may just not have seen it.  Here are the artists in alphabetical order:

Art by Manny – detailed Boba Fett

Superheroes and Clone Troopers by Jon Bolerjack
Superheroes and Clone Troopers by Jon Bolerjack

Jon Bolerjack had clone troopers portraits which featured action hero helmet coloring; these “Clone Trooper Mashups”, he said, had flatter helmets, which lend themselves to more easily creating these

Andy Fairhurst – side portraits

Tom Hodges, as always, had great Star Wars art

Fake Slave Leia choking Jabba the Hutt - by Greg Horn
Fake Slave Leia choking Jabba the Hutt – by Greg Horn

Greg Horn had a great slave Leia with Jabba the Hutt (although it is not Leia as portrayed by Carrie Fisher)

Terry Huddleston had a whole section of Star Wars portraits, which started with helmeted characters in Star Wars and branched out from there

Lopan Art – action Yoda and Fett

– Scott Marcano – Diablo Productions

Patty McPancakes

Stormtroopers and AT-ATs by MuseTap

MuseTap Art Studio – Vader and dallen storm troopers

Boba Fett and Darth Maul by Jerry Pesce

Jerry Pesce had some great portraits, especially some metal prints, which are cool-looking in different lighting

Darth Vader on Hoth - Livio Ramondelli
Darth Vader on Hoth – Livio Ramondelli

Livio Ramondelli had some great prints mostly featuring a character in the center of the work as imagined scenes which could have been.  An eye-catching feature was that some of them were metal prints, which are really cool, as the lighting on the pieces change as the viewer’s perspective does.

Jerry VanderStelt – had really incredible artwork!  One such piece was R2-D2 at night, wandering on Tattooine in “A New Hope”, which is not shown in the movie and another was the Millenium Falcon escaping an attack by TIE fighters almost like in a comic book with panels to give it a look like it was coming off of the page.

While this list is finished, I also want to make a special mention of Memory Lane Productions, which had dozens of prints he bought out from Nelvana Studios from “Star Wars Ewoks” and “Star Wars Droids”, including some original backgrounds.  That was really neat to see (especially having just re-watched all of “Star Wars Droids”).
