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 work of Tom Hodges.
Best known for his work in a Galaxy far, far away… Tom was the lead Artist on the star wars.com’s Clone Wars webcomic series for three seasons. Tom will be bringing the fourth, unreleased story online soon. He is also responsible for the “Star Wars Universe Dream Park” map for SWCV in Orlando in 2010, two years before Disney purchased Lucasfilm. He has been working in the industry for over 20 years, contributing to such other properties a Lord of the Rings, Transformers, Halo, The Simpson’s and, as we mentioned at earlier, Star Wars.
Tom has also provided the art for the band RUSH’s 2012 5.1 surround sound remaster of their landmark album “2112”, in which Tom brought the album to life in Graphic Novel form that was the centerpiece of the box set and used to create a motion comic.
Currently, amongst small projects, Tom continues to develop his own Comic Universe (Antiis Comics), and hopes to bring it to an online service in 2020.
Tom resides in Southern California with his wife, Terri and their Four Furkids.
