Our friends over at R2-KT are celebrating the artists of the galaxy, shining a light on their work during these tough times which has seen conventions cancelled and postponed and their main revenue streams cut off as other matters take precedence. Every day through out June, R2-KT will focus on a talented artist of the galaxy, and today the featured artist is Jonathan Myers.
He first saw the original Star Wars film as a small child at the drive-in movie theater in 1977 and he was mesmerized by the story of Luke Skywalker. The spectacle of light, sounds and cinematic magic absolutely captivated his imagination and he fell in love with George Lucas’ visual masterpiece.
Jonathan has completed many paintings featuring the characters, creatures and worlds of Star Wars and was honored to complete several pieces for R2-KT at the invitation of 501st founder, Albin Johnson. The artist’s work features enigmatic wizards, frightening monsters, beautiful damsels, heroic warriors and fantastic realms.
