IN THIS EPISODE ::
I discovered the awesome work of illustrator Grant Gould after I heard an interview with him on The Force Cast.
When they plugged Grant’s website I checked it out and immediately became a fan of his work. He has a confident graphic style, a serenely balanced design sense and it is all sustained, primarily, by a contagious joy for drawing. His interpretations of the Lucasfilm characters are perhaps the most commercial pieces in his portfolio, but his own original creations are just as compelling.
I had the honor of meeting Grant when I attended Wizard World Chicago last summer and I was pleased to learn that he is also a remarkably friendly guy, easy going and humble.
I knew that I had to interview him for this show. And as I suspected, he generously obliged.
My dear friend Brian Campbell also joined us for the conversation. You can learn more about Brian’s life and artwork by listening to Episode 7 of this ArtCast or you can visit his website.
