For those that do not know who Randy Martinez is, no worries, you know his work. You've seen it on the Celebration IV program cover
, or the Celebration Europe programme
, or even his rendition of Darth Maul as the lead guitarist for SITH
. Randy is talented artist, musician and all around awesome dude and he's been tapped to do the key art for Celebration V.
Updates on StarWars.com over the past month have revealed five initial pieces of art that Randy has done to promote the show (you can check them out on our Celebration 5 Survival Guide
) plus we were just graced with an update showing his artwork for the cover of the official Celebration 5 Commemorative Guide
. You can expect to see 7 more pieces of art from Randy, bringing the total up to 13 pieces overall.
Randy will also be at the show, but you won't be able to find him in Artists Alley, this time. He will be spending his time at a couple other booths helping promote and sign all the key art pieces he has created for Celebration V.
Most of his work will be able to be purchased at the Celebration Store (where he'll be signing), but he will also be doing something special for ... oh wait, we can't talk about that yet. Gotta keep the surprises coming, don't we?
Randy will also have constant representation at the Art of John Alvin Booth (#1026). That booth is actually ARTNSIGHTS Animation Gallery. They are featuring John's art, but they are also representing a few other artists including Randy.
