I was given the chance to produce 100 helmet sketch cards, each hand painted, drawn, and hand stenciled.
They were then dropped randomly in packs for the public.
Aside from my respect for Star Wars,This is a very original group of talented artists.
I am honored to be included in this project.

"American trading card institution TOPPS gets radical with the new STAR
WARS GALAXY 4.
Since the release of the original STAR WARS movie in 1977, Topps has
brought the magic of the big screen to the tiny trading card, inspiring
millions of kids worldwide and defining a genre. In the following 30 plus
years, Topps has continued to push the boundaries with such innovations as
widescreen cards, foil stamps, and motion cards, evolving far beyond the
old wax paper and crappy gum packets of yesteryear.
Enter the Sketchcard. With the release of 2004's Clone Wars series, Topps
once again raised the bar by introducing 1 of 1 artist interpretations
drawn directly onto blank cards. Short packed in with the regular cards,
these are very rare, highly sought after mini works of fine art.
Sketchcards have become a collecting category unto themselves, with
websites and fan groups obsessively trying to find and catalogue each one
as their value continues to increase. Traditionally, these sketchcards
have been produced by Comic book artists, animators and fantasy
illustrators, all known artists within the Star Wars community. Until
Reaching out to the vast world of street artists, toy designers, and
underground pop mutants, Topps has pushed the limits once again. With the
debut of the first die-cut sketch card, artists outside the traditional
realm of Star Wars illustration have put their own stamp on these little
canvases in the shape of Darth Vader and Stormtrooper helmets. STAR WARS
Galaxy is a radical, art-oriented collection that showcases rare and
offbeat imaginings of the Star Wars cannon. It is the perfect venue from
which to unleash this new experiment in Star Wars collecting. Star Wars
Galaxy 4 is available now in most comic and hobby shops or from Topps.com"
