There are 35 artists attending Celebration VI which means 35 exclusive art prints to hunt down. Today, we continue our Artist Spotlight series with Stephen Hayford & Tom Hodges.



Artist: Stephen Hayford
Title: Trooper Break 2
Size: 12.5" x 30"
Paper: 100-lb silk cover stock
Price: $30
Edition Size: 250


Award-winning photographer Stephen Hayford has been in photojournalism for more than 20 years. He has worked with the Palm Beach Post, Sun-Sentinel, Miami Herald, Rocky Mountain News, The News-Press and other newspapers and wire services in Colorado, Ohio, Missouri and Florida.

More than 15 years ago, he channeled his documentary sensibilities into his childhood love of Star Wars through building dioramas and customizing action figures. He uses them as sets and characters for satirical images rooted in his news experiences. After years of displaying Star Wars-themed holiday images on Rebelscum.com, Hayford began freelancing for Lucasfilm. He also does diorama work for commercial clients, exhibits and museums.

Stop by his booth to appreciate the detail of his images in person. He will also have for sale postcards from his “Hello From Florida” series and mini books featuring his non-Star Wars work. You can see more of his work here: http://www.lifeinplastics.com, http://www.facebook.com/StephenHayfordPlastics, https://twitter.com/#!/HayfordPhoto.

Remarque will be available with pre-ordered prints directly from Tom here for a limited time.


Tom Hodges originally hails from Cherry Hill, NJ (just across the bridge from Philadelphia, PA), and spent most of his young life drawing Darth Vader. This led to his first official Star Wars commission in 2003, and many Star Wars projects later, Tom is working on two of his own creations: the comic MIDKNIGHT (co-created with his wife, Terri) for Red 5 Comics and his web comic "The Adventures of Rhiannon Ryder", which will debut online later this year. Tom currently resides at Disneyland (well... VERY close to it) with his wife Terri and their Furry Children (Tom will be found at The Art of Ralph McQuarrie Booth and various signings).
