Experience the Saga of Celebrity Fanboy - Joe Corroney




Friday, November 30th at 11:00 PM EST

Joe Corroney has been a licensed Lucasfilm artist since 1997 providing art for books, games, trading cards, comic books, posters and magazines in the Star Wars universe. After reviewing Joe’s artwork bibliography you will think of him as the James Brown – “hardest working man” – of the art world of super heroes, sci-fi, horror, fantasy and adventure.  In addition to his huge professional and unpublished portfolio Joe somehow finds the time to teach.

Joe has been the instructor of the Comic Book Illustration Course at the Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, Ohio and taught the Ohio State University's Summer Comic Book Workshop. He is also a celebrity member of theFORCEbook.com. I originally met Joe on theFORCEbook.com via his posts and was lucky enough to meet him at Star Wars Celebration VI where I purchased his Star Wars Celebration VI Limited Edition Print which celebrates the 30th anniversary of Return of the Jedi. I also fell in love with other concepts he had on display that I had to purchase! I can’t wait to talk to him about those pieces in particular as well as his vast body of work.


We will also, of course, discuss his Star Wars fanboy status, as well as his interest in many other fanboy pursuits. Not the least of which are Indiana Jones, Star Trek and more.

To celebrate the momentous occasion of Joe Corroney’s interview on the podcast, November 30th at 11pm EST, we will have a special contest - Joe Corroney Custom Sketchcard Contest.
