I had the privilege of being asked by George Lucas to create an image for the new book he was planning on publishing. He asked me to create a new bounty hunter holding a light saber. I designed a new lights saber and then asked him, "How does a bounty hunter end up with a light saber?" His response: "He kills a Jedi". Here's the piece that was included in the book "STAR WARS IMAGES". He liked it so much that he bought the painting. It's over five feet long and about three feet high.
Last year I was commissioned to design and build a forty foot arch over Main Street in down town Sandpoint, Idaho. Sandpoint is historically a fishing community and tourist town. My proposal consisted of using recycled materials - used highway signs for the fish and used steel I-beam pilings for the structure. There are 92 fish swimming over Main Street now. Many of them are pivoted so that they move in the breeze, giving the illusion of a swimming school of fish. It was a fun project.
