Kanan Jarrus by JoeHoganArt Kanan Jarrus by JoeHoganArt
Just a little something to include in my LFL portfolio that I'm submitting next week for consideration to be in the Celebration Anaheim Art Show! Wish me luck! :D I included the Rebels logo just for fun, it's not official by any stretch of the imagination! haha Hope you guys dig, now back to commissions!

What I like about Kanan's lightsaber is how it comes apart and can easily pass for something innocuous like maintenance tools.

Ya know the way Kanan is towards Ezra reminds me of how Victor Sullivan was towards Nate Drake in the Uncharted games:D (Big Grin)

He is voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr. (they guy who played Fred in Scooby Doo 1 and 2), and somehow he is making a very cool job as him.

Cool art, looks like the art from Clone Wars (the 2D one).

Kanan reminds me a bit of kyle katarn from jedi knight series.

Good work! I just wanted to ask a question: How do you deal with the copyrights when selling (and doing) your Star Wars artwork? I've noticed that there are tons of artists who do Star Wars fan art, but some manage to get around the copyright. I'm not trying to pry; I'm just curious. Please don't take this the wrong way.

haha No offense taken! The thing is, a lot of artists sell work illegally. The only Star Wars art I sell is licensed official work, specifically because of the Topps sets I've worked on. So I'm legally allowed to sell those. I won't sell mass-produced prints regarding Star Wars with the exception of Mike Vasquez and my Adventure Time mash-up, because that falls under the category of parody and is legal. The art itself I do online (here on DA, my motion comics, web comics, etc) I get no financial gain from, so I'm breaking no laws. The motion comic stuff especially, I go out of my way to make it clear that they'll always be free to watch, and that they are unofficial work.

However, lots of other artists sell mass produced Star Wars art, and that's super risky. Especially if they ever want to work for Lucasfilm. You don't want to step on their toes, especially if you wanna work for them. Some artists feel like it's easier to ask for forgiveness than it is for permission, but I'd rather not bite the hand that feeds me.

In the case of selling physical original artwork (as in, you know, there's only one original of it and it's not a print), that's typically allowed to be sold. In fact, LFL has been known to buy original art themselves! LFL doesn't look down on selling original art in that sense. In fact, most companies are cool with that. It's the people that make a ton of money off their property without their permission, that's where it gets sticky.

Hope that helps!

I understand. Thank you for clearing that up. Sometimes even I do parodies. Parodies and lampoons are what keep us artists out of trouble. I don't make a profit from my own fan art of my favorite things; I just prefer to share them with friends, and they're big hits on top of that. I keep the originals, and they get a copy of the work.

Thanks, Erin! I just might have to do the whole cast. I really just wanted to do one to show LFL "Hey, I'm not stuck in a Clone Wars mindset" but now everybody's encouraging me to do the whole cast...and I do want to! So we'll see!
