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. Each day through June, R2-KT focuses on a talented artist of the galaxy, and today we take a look at the art of Russell Walks.
Why Star Wars:
Because for me, Star Wars is about more than laser blasts and lightsabers. It’s about friendship and honor and nobility. It’s about doing the right thing, even when it’s hard, for no other reason than because it is the right thing. It’s about following one’s bliss, and finding the one thing you’re made to do, and then putting in the work necessary to do it well.
And ultimately – for me – Star Wars is about the idea that it is never too late – That there is always an opportunity for redemption.
My Favorite Pieces:
It’s hard for me to pick favorites – Each finished piece is special to me, and I try to love them for what they are, flaws and all. That said, I really, really love working in the classic Star Wars universe. I guess the original movies speak to me the loudest, and working with those characters is like spending time with old friends.
