Lightsaber Rattling posted an interview with Chris Trevas, one of the artists for Star Wars: The Essential Reader’s Companion. The interview covers everything from Chris’ illustration methods to his favorite pieces.
It looks like the folks at Del Rey kept you busy on The Essential Reader’s Companion, by my count you have 23 illustrations in the book. Out of those, is there one piece that stands out as your favorite?
CT: It’s tough to pick just one. They were all pretty fun for different reasons. The piece showing Lando escorting Luke, Han and Chewie onto the skiff at Jabba’s was fun since it’s a scene taking place within the classic movie timeline, but not shown on screen. Those are my favorite pieces to do. I also like to illustrate the Millennium Falcon’s history so I enjoyed painting young Han from the Han Solo Adventures.
