Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 161 starts off with an unboxing of Dungeons & Dragons Next, flows into a con report of SDCC 2014, then jumps into the main feature: an interview with actor Adam Lazarre-White who voiced Jacob in the Mass Effect series. Adam talks about he got into acting, his early career in soap opera, moving into voice acting, the differences between roles, identifying scenes, being the character, and even basing Jacob on Han Solo. Kind of a neat interview and worth listening to if you’re a Mass Effect fan or interesting in acting and voice acting.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode #22 includes some feedback on the Star Wars Rebels trailer out of SDCC 2014, some comments on the X-wing revealed in the Force for Change video, and the usual “Expresso Shot” from the Bearded Trivia hitting film news including Jurassic World. Consetta Parker stops by to talk about the upcoming Rancho Obi-Wan Gala, and they interview author Ian Doescher. Ian talks about the William Shakespeare Star Wars books, finding the right voices for the characters, and even shares what he’s working on next. Lot of goodness packed into this one episode, so be sure to check it out.

Special Edition: Coffee with Kenobi Discusses SDCC 2014” includes their thoughts on the Star Wars Rebels preview clips and the character of the Inquisitor. Then they with special guest Jeff McGee (Assembly of Geeks) about SDCC and collectibles. Jeff’s always a fun guy to listen to and Star Wars Rebels and SDCC make good discussion topics. Another good one to add to your playlist.

Dave Dorman 2014 Artbooks

August 11, 2014 at 6:13 am | Posted in Art, Books, Fantasy, Sci-Fi | Leave a comment

Artist Dave Dorman is one of the few Star Wars artists I know who does an annual sketchbook. This year Dave is offering Leadworks No. 2 which is a 20 page booklet (5.5″x8.5″) featuring a variety of sketches ranging from Star Wars to The Walking Dead. In addition to the sketchbook, Dave is also offering Oil & Water: Xenocide and Oil & Water: Wizardry and Magic. Both are booklets just like Leadworks, but they contain full color images of his paintings. Xenocide focuses on Aliens and Predator whereas Wizardry and Magic is all fantasy based work for companies like Wizards of the Coast and Blizzard. Below are some images of the artwork to give you an idea of what’s inside.
