"I love the many diverse aliens species in Star Wars and what they represent in the context of our real world. They populate every known corner of the galaxy and on every level of society; they are scum, politicians, traders, explorers and everyday citizens, but those individuals who fought and died for freedom and peace against the tyranny of the Empire and The First Order hold a special place in my heart. This piece is a tribute to those alien characters who are often overlooked but who nevertheless make up the heart of the Rebellion. As a fan of the Mon Calamari I also wanted to give special honour to Ackbar and Raddus, who along with the rest of their people were integral in the downfall of the Empire and in fulfilling the dream of a free galaxy." ~ Darren Tan

He now works as a freelance illustrator for official Star Wars licensees like Fantasy Flight Games and Del Rey Publishing and hopes to inspire future generations of artists.
