I have recently created a set of illustrations for Cross, America’s oldest manufacturer of fine writing instruments.

Cross have been working in conjunction with Disney to produce a new range of pens for the new Star Wars film. This special collection of pens honours the original Star Wars film trilogy with each design themed to feature the colour palette of three major characters; Darth Vader, C3P0 and the Storm Trooper. Design overlays and the addition of an emblem representing each character also bring the spirit of each to life.

I’ve used each specifically designed pen to create the artworks for the relevant characters. Each illustration is off-set by a spray painted colour background.

The illustrations are being gifted to various media organisations all of which you can follow on my Twitter.

Many thanks to Cross and Cirkle PR for their support in this extremely enjoyable project.
