Randy Rock Poster-meltdown-1-2016

Randy Martinez is one of today’s most busy artists in the pop culture genre. His illustrations been have used for most of today’s biggest pop culture properties, including Star Wars, Marvel Comics, Aliens, and Lord of the Rings. Considered the Swiss army knife of Star Wars Illustrators, Randy Martinez has been creating Cartoons, Caricatures, Illustrations, Paintings, and 3D art for Lucasfilm LTD since 1999. Martinez’s art first appeared in Star Wars Kids Magazine before he quickly moved on to create cartoons and caricatures for the Star Wars Insider.  In 2007 Martinez was chosen to create the official key art for Star Wars Celebration IV (Los Angeles CA) and Europe (London UK) and then once again in 2010 to create the 13 pieces of key art for Star Wars Celebration V(Orlando FL).  Martinez has continued a wide range of illustration styles for Scholastic Books, Acme Archives and Topps Trading cards, where he has illustrated over 160 Trading cards and created over 10,000 sketch cards!

You have probably owned Martinez’s Star Wars art some way, and didn’t even know it. In recent years, his Holiday Star Wars art has become  instant classics appearing on official mugs, t-shirts, stationary, and even Christmas stockings! Have you seen Darth Vader playing christmas songs at the Piano, or the Star Wars Heroes singing Christmas Carols?  Yep, those are both creations of Randy Martinez.

In 2012, Randy Martinez was bestowed a great honor when three of his illustrations were included in the book Star Wars Art: Illustration (Abrams Books).  Star Wars: Illustration celebrates the most influential and important illustrators that have ever created official Star Wars illustrations since 1977. Every illustration in this book was hand selected by George Lucas from his personal art collection.

In 2012, Marvel Comics began production of Randy’s “Marvel: Legacy” series for the Official Marvel Fine Art collection.

Martinez is also an accomplished author of two how to draw books. Creature Features: Draw Amazing Monsters and Aliens (Impact Books), and Sketch Card Mania (Impact Books), which he co-authored with Denise Vasquez.
