The R2-KT Artists Month rolls on into July after a successful June, giving artists the chance to show off their work to a wider audience during these difficult times. Every day through out June, R2-KT focused on a talented artist of the galaxy, and now that continues into July with today’s artist, Alex Buechel.
“I got my first professional gig in 2006 with Topps drawing trading cards for Star Wars. As a kid, I was always a fan and this was the icing on the cake. After many sets, I found myself lucky to grow a part of the SW community and art world. Now, many years later I am proud to have a small portfolio of SW pieces including a Helmet I made for the As You Wish project and three Star Wars Celebration Exclusive art prints.”
What drew you to illustrating Star Wars?
“I always admired the movies growing up. From the amazing story to the props, costumes, to the ships, and especially the light sabers. It was all magical. Lucky for me it happened to also be my first professional gig.”
