The Drawings Awaken by grantgoboom
The Drawings Awaken
Happy 2016, everyone! Trying to get my rear in gear after a crazy holiday season. Hoping to bring you LOTS more art in '16 than I did in '15. Thank you all for your support, and keep your eyes on my site (GrantGould.com) and all my various social media places... Here are some random TFA doodles/drawings from the past few days. Trying to shake off some cobwebs. :) More art coming soon!

United States
I'm a freelance artist based in Minnesota. My primary clients include Lucasfilm (StarWars.com kids' features and official Clone Wars web-comics, as well as the Klutz books "Draw Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and "Draw Star Wars: Rebels," etc.) and Topps (Star Wars Illustrated: A New Hope, Star Wars Illustrated: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars Galaxy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings, Halo, and many others). I'm also the creator of "The Wolves of Odin," a graphic novella originally published by Super Real Graphics (WolvesOfOdin.com, now available on Comixology), as well as the fantasy game Blade Raiders.

Hello Grant. I just wanted to ask what you had to fulfill to become a freelance illustrator, because I've been thinking of freelance as a career option.

There's no good answer for this. You just have to make the jump when you think the time is right. It's really tough to make it on freelance work alone. My recommendations: make sure you have at least two regular clients lined up, make lots of additional contacts (companies/editors) and talk to them regularly, and if possible, have a bunch of money saved up so that you can pay some bills during those SLOW months... There will be many, many SLOW months where you'll have no checks coming in. :) It's fun to do what you love, but it's harder than most people think to go full freelance and leave the security of a regular, weekly or monthly paycheck.

Whoa, Grant Gould! I haven't seen your work since I was a wee lad scouring livejournal for cool art.

I asked Sharon Stone (Tladyjessica) over there because she said she was a starwars nerd but she didnt answer my questions.
