Tim McDonagh – Star Wars Galactic Atlas

From a galaxy far, far away to a beautifully-illustrated book near you…. this was definitely one of those projects that was difficult to keep a secret, especially as it began unfolding in such a magnificent way. This year, we managed to land our very own resident Star Wars fantastic Tim McDonagh the brief of his dreams: to illustrate an entire Star Wars book.

Excited as he was, he understood that this was no small undertaking, and quickly got to work on a project that ended up being incredibly detailed and laborious. After supplying a detailed sample to the client (Egmont) and getting the go-ahead, Tim spent around a year working on various maps, all your favourite characters and the additional promo material for the book. When you look at the immense level of detail on every page you’ll see why it took so long to get everything together. The finished work was so well received that it was even given it’s own trailer!
