Star Wars: Platt’s Starport Guide, 1995

This assignment from West End Games came at the peak of my freelance comics career. It was my first year away from the staff job at Malibu Comics and I was working almost exclusively on anime-based comic books for Voyager Entertainment (Argo Press) and Central Park Media (CPM Comics). Star Wars game illustrations were getting rare, but looking better as a result of all the time I’d spent honing my skills. My brush-inking technique in particular was right where I wanted it to be.

On the other hand, this was the last time I would approach a Star Wars project this way since I was about to dive into the world of Photoshop and a lot would change as a result.

The concept for this book was for gamers to visit several different spaceports in the Star Wars galaxy and get into all sorts of trouble. I never played any of these games myself, but hopefully my drawings helped someone else enjoy theirs.
