and the Star Wars
Role-Playing Game. In addition to his Star Wars
work, he's created product illustrations and published artworks for Doctor Who
, Dungeons & Dragons

, Lord of the Rings

and THE GUILD
. He currently lives in Ohio with his wife and their white Hellcat, Snow.

Born in 1984, Jeff Confer had to wait nine years to be properly introduced to Star Wars
by seeing the Original Trilogy for the first time in theaters during the Special Edition re-release. While attending the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, he began his freelance art career by designing concert fliers. Since then he has done numerous commissioned illustrations and completed sketch card sets for Topps, Rittenhouse Archives, and Bad Axe Studios. Recently he collaborated on the illustration and packaging design for the cancer benefit album, Electronic Saviors Industrial Music to Cure Cancer Vol. II, for Metropolis Records and Distortion Productions. Jeff currently resides in Huntsville, Alabama, with his fiance and co-artist, as well as their two cats. At the show he will also have a promotional mini-print give away.
