Artist Spotlight: Raymond Swanland

Raymond Swanland is a more recent addition to the world of Star Wars art.  His first piece was created for Star Wars Art: Visions in 2010, and he was mostly silent on the Star Wars front until he began releasing new prints relatively frequently via Acme Archives.  While not having close to the number of Star Wars pieces as Trevas, Swanland’s Star Wars work makes up just a small portion of his portfolio, having done work for Magic the Gathering, World of Warcraft, and the Alien vs. Predator comics.  His works have a sense of motion that I absolutely love, and thanks to his fairly recent entry on to the Star Wars scene I’ve been able to include what I believe to be his entire Star Wars portfolio.   All of these pictures I’ve taken from his Facebook page.
