New gallery for Art Directors and Editors….

A brand new gallery “Mixed Bag” has been added to the updated site.  This one is specifically designed for busy art directors and potential clients that do not want to browse through hundreds of images.  It’s a smaller collection of my work that exhibits the multiple styles I can provide to clients.  Digital, traditional, loose and painterly, precise and photo-real its all in there.

New Year = New Site

I finally have overhauled the complete website.  New and updated galleries, a fresh theme, and mobile friendly.  Ive also inventoried and updated the entire online store with new fine art reproductions.  Lots of new and engaging posts are coming out this year.  New content ranging from online tutorials, behind the scenes videos and exclusive art packages only available here.  Hope everyone is off to a great beginning of 2018!  Stay tuned for new fine art reproductions based on The Walking Dead, Star Wars, and so much more…..



Star Wars Time Magazine Cover Art!

On the store shelves now! Get to your nearest magazine rack and grab one of these before they are gone. I have had a-lot of really great opportunities over the years but this is definitely one to remember. A time Magazine cover is about a good as it gets for an illustrator and one for the Star Wars 40th Special Edition book is definitely the right fit for me. An honor and privilege to be selected by Time to be their cover artist for this awesome Special Edition of their magazine.


New fine art line THE WALKING DEAD

There has been a lot of exciting things happening around the studio lately. Something that I have been waiting to share with everyone can finally be announced. I have recently partnered with AMC to create an officially licensed brand new line of fine art based on The Walking Dead television show. I will be offering various formats of signed and numbered fine art prints based on all seasons of The Walking Dead. The limited edition artwork will be available directly through the official online store and my official store at We are looking forward to developing a killer line of brand new artwork.

Im stoked to offer up the first of many brand new creations based on The Walking Dead!  Check the store often for new releases!


Rebel Force Radio: Brian Rood Interview

trooper army final_12_28_2015A really fun interview I recently did with my buddies over at Rebel Force Radio.   Looking forward to chatting with them again soon!  

My segment starts at around the 1:42 mark for those of you that are a bit short on time but if you can, have fun listening to the whole show.  These guys are really great at what they do and are a blast to listen to as your working, chilling, surfing the net or just escaping from your busy day for a bit of Star Wars chat!


Its been awhile…..

So Im slowly trying to get the site updated with new art and a complete update of the store is coming early 2016. I have been doing nothing for 2+ years other than painting drawing and occasionally posting to facebook. By mid 2016 I will have completed over 500 illustrations in around 2 years time…. Incase your wondering, yes, that is an insane amount of artwork for one guy to crank out in that amount of time. Unfortunately many things had to be put on the back burner in order to fill such a large order. This website was one of those things. The upside is I literally will be updating with hundreds of new images in the very near future. Ive just posted a bunch of stuff I recently did for Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. You have probably seen these images throughout the retail market. They have been used on everything from the Her Universe clothing line to kids puzzles. Basically as soon as Im allowed to share the artwork I will be posting it! Hope everyone is having a great Holiday Season and end of 2015!  Tons of new stuff right around the corner!!!!!!  In the meantime here are a bunch of pics from the last years travels and fun times with friends and family… 🙂

Star Wars Celebration CVI artwork

Alright boys and girls…. Star Wars Celebration CVI is right around the corner!  Here is the skinny on all the goodies that I will have at the show.  Of course my brand new Return of the Jedi lithograph will be available at the event.  I wanted to create a perfect companion to the Empire painting I did for the last Celebration 2 years ago.  Presales were fantastic but I still have some for everybody!  My suggestion is to get there sooner than later as presales have taken a large portion of the prints out of circulation.  I also was asked to do a tribute piece of Ralph McQuarrie artwork for the event.  What an honor that was.  Im so thrilled with the final artwork for the tribute painting!  A beautiful mix of fully rendered acrylics with unfinished watercolors pulled together in the painting to represent many of the creations Mr. McQuarrie helped to breath life into.  Last but not least the Key Art for the show!!!!  Chris Trevas and I were selected to create brand new artwork for all the badges, program covers, and many other collectible items you will find at the Celebration Store.  We will also be over there signing and hanging out both Friday and Saturday at the official Store in the afternoon.  Then throw on top of this nearly 50 illustrations for a new Random House project and there you have my spring and summer in a nutshell.  Looking forward to seeing everyone this upcoming weekend at Star Wars Celebration VI!
