Comic Artist Launches The Ben TempleSith Star Wars Project

StarWars.com Team | September 29, 2010

Comic book artist Ben Templesmith — best known for his work on 30 Days of Night, Fell, Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse, Singularity 7 and Welcome To Hoxford — is doing his own online tribute to Star Wars by drawing each and every character… just for fun.

The artist recently announced on Twitter that he plans to draw every Star Wars character as they appear in the original trilogy. The first two characters he’s already posted are none other than the dynamic droid duo of C-3PO and R2-D2.

The first in a series of quick character sketches of every single half decent Star Wars character that appears in the original trilogy… in the order they basically appear in the films.

Yes, I’m nuts, but always wanted to collect all the figures when I was a kid, and now I’ll just bloody draw them myself instead!

This isn’t the first time Templesmith has traveled to a galaxy far, far away. He also illustrated a rather creepy story “Dark Journey” in issue #17 of Star Wars Tales, published by Dark Horse Comics.

We can’t wait to see which Star Wars characters he draws next for The Ben TempleSith Project!

Be sure to follow Ben Templesmith’s blog, as well as on his Twitter.
