Inspired by my hero Chris Schweizer (whom lives my dream of being a true life lumberjack artist) I want to start doing series of paper figures based on Star Wars characters. Once I have a bunch made I’ll post them for download here at LumberjackNick.com.
Below is the most recent one I’ve done. Shredded Kylo Ren:
Just right click on the image above, save, print, and cut!
The above paper figure does take the following stands to….stand. But I’m looking into an alternative version that doesn’t need stands.
UPDATE: I made a page with printable versions of my current Paper Figures. Click HERE, or on the Menu Bar above
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.

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.
Recently John Bishop of MakingStarWars.net got the opportunity to interview some of the actors who portrayed various X-Wing pilots from various Star Wars films. To accompany his interviews he asked me to draw the corresponding helmet.
I took this opportunity to continue to hone my digital art skills. Below are the first four helmets with links to John’s interview.

For years I’ve turned my nose up at it, but after talking to my storyboard mentor it turns out that digital art is the industry’s standard.
So I created my iPad mini and decided to give digital art a real college try. Below is a 332nd clone trooper helmet done completely digitally using the first iPad version of SketchBook.

This past year I’ve gone back into the archives and dug out some of my favorite character drawings that I did for my Countdown to Episode VII and decided to give them a bit of an update.
The purpose for the countdown was to help improve my drawing skills, so Sketch Wars: Revisited is a way to test if I’ve actually made progress. Below are the original character drawing with the new version. Let me know if you think I’ve made progress or not in the comments below:
