Happy Star Wars Day, Everyone!
To celebrate the day, we are featuring my big project from last year...
In 2015, I was chosen to create four epic images with hundreds of Star Wars characters and in-jokes to be used as posters and an online game for Toys-R-Us. STAR WARS EPIC BATTLES was used as lead up to the release of The Force Awakens, and even though the posters never ended up being released, the online game provided many fans around the world with fun. AND HERE THEY ARE for your enjoyment.

About Jeff

Born in the town of Shelby, OH (Birthplace of the seamless tube industry in America), Jeff Carlisle grew up in the bustling metropolis of Columbus, OH. There, he attended public school without being shot or stabbed and continued his education at the prestigious Columbus College of Art and Design, to whom he swears he will pay back his tuition.

A year or so after graduating from Art School, Jeff submitted art to the Star Wars fan site TheForce.Net, which resulted in a dedicated fan art gallery there and enough courage to actually talk to his peers. In the year 2000, A chance meeting with acclaimed fantasy artist and children's book author Tony DiTerlizzi resulted in a new friendship for both and persistent nagging from DiTerlizzi to "get in the game," which led to the 2000 GenCon game fair, which led to his first industry job: programming Binary Load-Lifters, er, drawing Starships, Droids and Aliens for Star Wars Gamer magazine.

After moving for a short time to San Diego California to work on a video game, Jeff returned to Columbus -- where he lives with his wife, Lisa.

After nearly 20 years of freelance illustration and concept design, he has worked with a number of clients including: Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG), COSI Studios, Decipher, Goodman Games/Sword and Sorcery, Green Ronin Publishing, Lucasfilm Ltd., Paizo Publishing, Poop House Reilly, Presto Studios/Microsoft Game Studios, The Scarefactory, Inc., Topps and Wizards of the Coast.

Now, people actually pay him to do what he does for free on his own time, but don't tell anyone--that's a secret.
