I recently joined the roster over at Planet Pulp – every month they set a new theme based around popular culture for their contributers to illustrate – and this month (May, the Star Wars month, obviously) the theme was Star Wars.
I loved Star Wars as a kid, slightly less so as the prequels slowly revealed themselves, and now I'm excited to see what happens with it now that Disney holds the reins. The Force Awakens was brilliant, so it seems only fitting to bring together some of my favourite heroes from the old and new stories.
Simon took our initial concept to very loose script and created a list of illustrations we needed to make our whiteboard video simply work. He delivered the first few illustrations in sketch form, and we knew he was going to nail it. On budget and on time every step of the way, Simon was not only a genius illustrator but a lovely person to work with. He has a talent for taking the everyday and making it sing. He delighted our audience with his clever and cute characters, and went beyond what we thought was even possible. We'd work with him again in a heartbeat. Jennifer del Greco, pndu.org
