New Book: “I Am #7: George Lucas” published by Scholastic

Book cover by Mark Fredrickson

I Am #7: George Lucas, written by Grace Norwich and published by Scholastic, came out on July 31! I completed 61 interior illustrations for the book. If you’ve got any little ones that love Star Wars or Indiana Jones and might want to learn more about the man behind the movies, this is the book for you! Find it on amazon at You can also preview the book and see more of my illustrations with the “Look Inside” feature. Instead of buying it on Amazon, though, I encourage you to see if it’s available at your local bookstore, and if not, ask that they order the series for their store!

I am currently working on I am #10: Cleopatra for the same series. It will be available to order in January 2014.

One of my interior illustrations of a young George Lucas (he was actually very handsome!) working on a draft of Star Wars, surrounded by reference material.

In a few days I am leaving for Gen Con Indianapolis, where Scott and I (and our friend and fellow illustrator, Owen William Weber) will have booths in the art show! This will be mine and Owen’s first booth. I’m very excited. I am bringing some framed and/or matted original paintings that will be hanging, a stack of other original paintings nicely packaged for purchase, and lots and lots of prints! If you are in the Indianapolis, IN area come check out the show!
