In November of 2013 I had the crazy idea to draw one Star Wars character a day counting down the 760 days that remained until the release of Episode VII. The catalyst for this idea was simple enough: To learn to draw better.
The quest was soon after christened: Sketch Wars.
Once December 15th 2015 arrived and I had completed my quest, I began to wonder what the future of Sketch Wars should be. It took me two years of wondering but to make a long story short I decided to transition Sketch Wars from a platform that encourages myself to grow as an artist into a platform that encourages others to grow as artists. And so the Sketch Wars Drawing Club is born.
Here’s how it works is: I post a drawing prompt onto my Instagram and Twitter accounts, then participants throughout the week complete and post a drawing based on the prompt. They then post their artwork onto their personal Instagram and Twitter accounts with the tag #sketchwarsdrawingclub.

Last week, I wrote about the Jack Marshall comic strips I’ve been working on. This week, I’d like to share with you a couple of pieces that I’ve done recently just for fun.
First up, I’ve been waiting to do more Star Wars: The Last Jedi related drawings, but since I’ve been so busy I haven’t had much time. I really like my design of Chewy in my “HOPE” collage so I thought I’d do a Chewy focused piece. Add in a few porgs and…presto! Ya got a The Last Jedi tie-in drawing!
Next up, the AT-ST Walker.

Recently a friend of mine lost his brother. Since only few weeks ago he told me that his favorite character was Twisty the Clown from American Horror Story, I decided to gift him with a drawing of his favorite character.
I didn’t know much about Twisty and was surprised to discover that, even though he’s absolutely terrifying, he’s actually a pretty sympathetic character.
(Drawn and colored digitally)
Today is my 5th Wedding Anniversary. Below is a card I made for my amazing wife. Her favorite Star Wars character is BB-8 and so I had the Sketch Wars Drawing Club unknowingly draw her a bunch of BB-8s
This drawing was done completely digitally.

Over the last year I’ve had the opportunity to do some character drawings from the upcoming blockbuster Star Wars: The Last Jedi for MakingStarWars.net

One of my goals with my Sketch Wars project is to encourage others to draw and to draw often. After finding several other drawing clubs on Instagram I decide to start my own!
I’ll be posting drawing prompts from time to time on my Instagram and Twitter.
First up we did drawings of TIE Fighters as I’ve wanted to draw a TIE Fighter for a really long time.
You can view the other amazing entries under the hashtag #SketchWarsDrawingClub on both Instagram and Twitter.
This TIE Fighter was drawn digitally and then colored using Copic Markers.
Last week I had the pleasure of doing not one, but two commissions for Marcio Filho from Brazil.
These were fun commissions to do as Plo Koon is my favorite Jedi, and I’ve been wanting to try my hand at doing more vehicles. (TIE Fighter next?)
Let me know what vehicles you’d like me to try my hand at, and also let me know who your favorite Jedi is in the comments below ✖
2016 was a tough year as we all agree. I wanted to commemorate those whom we lost last year in the hopes that we will never forget these key members of our Star Wars family.
Friend Mark Newbald of Jedi News posted my drawing on his site. Check it out after the jump.
