This is my fan art illustration of the bounty hunter Boba Fett. He is one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy and one of the most beloved villains from the Star Wars movies. Boba Fett has customized Mandalorian armor, deadly weaponry, and a silent demeanor. However, none of that kept him from falling into a Sarlacc pit.
This is a quick example of a treasure map I created for a project I’m working on with second graders. It is a rough drawing; I would like to make a more complex and complete drawing at some point. The mysterious island genre has always captured my imagination. Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe and Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island launched an entire genre centered around people finding themselves marooned on dangerous islands. In those stories the characters ultimately make the best of their situation and eventually escape. Having a map would have made an extended stay on those dangerous islands much more pleasant.
This is an old illustration from my undergraduate college days. I found it in a pile of old work in my study and thought it deserved to see the light of day one last time. I believe I used gouache paints and watercolors to create the illustration. I don’t think I even have any gouache paints anymore. Gouache is heavier and more opaque than watercolor. Back in college, gouache was the paint of choice for most of our instructors.
