Following our story yesterday
on the Highbridge Audio Collector's Editions
of A New Hope
Original Radio Drama that will be released in November, one of the artists involved, Randy Martinez, has contacted us with a little side note.
This is what Randy had to say:
The collectible CD covers "Heroes" (left on the post) and "Villains" (right on the post) were illustrated by Matt Busch and Randy Martinez. Busch created the "Heroes" cover, while I created the "Villains" cover.
The Villains CD cover features all the main Villains from the Star Wars Radio Drama, including Lord Tion (far left) and Heater (Far right), who only appear in the Radio drama. If Lord Tion looks familiar to some fans, it's because I used myself as the model for the shifty imperial agent. I also appear as Lord Tion in the new Topps Trading Cards release "Star Wars: A New Hope Illustrated". As mentioned in the story, "Star Wars: A New Hope Illustrated" is being released in cooperation with the CD release of the Radio Drama.
It's really a fun time to be creating new Star Wars art, and revisiting old Star Wars memories. There is much more Star Wars art coming from me very soon!
A big thanks to Randy for getting in touch, and keep checking his website
for exciting new Star Wars
