Walks is an official Star Wars artist. Although his original goals included both becoming bionic and joining the rebellion against the Empire, Walks eventually decided his destiny lay along another path, and chose art school over adventure. Adept at both traditional and digital illustration & design, he has created art based on licensed properties for clients including Paramount, 20th Century Fox, Random House and many others.
Walks began his illustration career drawing sketch cards and in an interview he did way back in 2010 on the sketch card art blog, he discussed the pros and cons of working on these:”I’m not crazy about working on such a small surface. For one thing, my eyes aren’t what they used to be, and it’s seriously hard for me to see that tiny! Additionally, I work fairly tightly, but still like to see evidence of the process – brushstrokes, pencil marks, etc – and I’ve found that when I’m working that small, it can be difficult to achieve both of those goals.” Sketch Card Art Blog Interview Walks 2010
He is a regular visitor to Star Wars Celebration events but Portsmouth is one of the first UK comic conventions he has attended. His unique and distinctive linework make him a fantastic addition to the show.
