Dan O'Bannon passed away. Most know him as the screenwriter of Alien. But he was much more. His designs for the readouts on the movie Dark Star influenced practically every sci fi movie I love. He worked on the animated screens on the original Star Wars, Alien & BladeRunner. Setting the look for sci-fi for my childhood. He worked on the legendary aborted Dune project with Jodorworsky, Foss, Moebius, Giger, Ron Cobb. He was one of my heroes and inspiration, I hoped one day I would tell him that. It's a sad day.

The Empire Muggs Back

I recently had the honor to be asked to do a customized Mighty Mugg for Lucasfilm's The Empire Muggs Back Project.

The Empire Muggs Back: Art for a Mighty Good Cause
Lucasfilm asked popular artists, comic book creators, toy designers and celebrities to take blank Mighty Muggs (donated by Hasbro) and transform them into their favorite Star Wars characters. The Muggs will be on display at this month's San Diego Comic-Con and then auctioned off by The Make-A-Wish Foundation.

When I first got the Mighty Mugg I had decided to do a stormtrooper but his diminutive size and fun proportions made me want to make him a wind up clockwork trooper

I molded his armor and weathered it a bit.

Then added old rusty clock parts to complete his look.

Stenciled 1138 on the back of his helmet

I included a green smiley face lollipop and he's all ready to be wound up and fight some rebels for a good cause.
