Star Wars G6 Sketchagraphs by grantgoboom Star Wars G6 Sketchagraphs by grantgoboom
I was one of 22 artists selected by Topps to do some "sketchagraph" cards, which are new inserts for Star Wars Galaxy 6 (very rare, from what I understand: 1 in every 135 packs) featuring an authentic signature from a Star Wars actor along with an original sketch by the artist. Here's a look at 8 of my 40 sketchagraphs.

The list of signers includes:
Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker)
Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia)
Ray Park (Darth Maul)
Jake Lloyd (Episode 1 Anakin Skywalker)
Orli Shoshan (Shaak Ti)
Amy Allen (Aayla Secura)
Jon Berg (FX artist, cantina creature actor)
John Morton (Dack Ralter)
Mike Quinn (Puppeteer: Sy Snootles, Nien Nunb & more)

I did 2 of Mark Hamill's, 3 of Carrie Fisher's, and 5 of everyone else's (I think everyone had these same ratios). Basically Topps had the actors sign the cards in advance, then sent the cards to the artists -- so it's a pretty fun concept. Hopefully people will enjoy them. I believe Star Wars Galaxy 6 begins shipping in early March 2011.

Thanks, dude - Yeah, they were a SUPER last minute thing. Topps emailed me and said, "Hey, wanna do these new sketchagraph things? You have one week to finish 40 of 'em." Aah, good ol' Topps.

Well, they did manage to overnight them, but when all was said and done, I only had about 5 days to draw 'em. It would've been great to have more time -- I felt bad rushing through 'em. It would've been cool to do all color.

5 days to do 40? A cakewalk for you! Especially after Revenge of the Sith. haha

Well the ones you showed off are fantastic! It doesn't even look like there was any pressure on you to get them done at all.
