The Star Wars Art of Terese Nielsen

terese-nielsenStar Wars artist Terese Nielsen has done a wide variety of artwork for the Star Wars universe. From Luke Skywalker to Yuuzhan Vong, and the likes of Ahsoka Tano and Mandalore the Ultimate, she has covered the full gamut of Star Wars eras. Her artwork also spreads across several mediums including cover art for novels and comics and even packaging art for the Star Wars Miniatures.

Outside of Star Wars, Forgotten Realms fans may be familiar with her work as she did the covers for Paul S. Kemp’s Erevis Cale Trilogy. Terese also did a lot of work for Magic: The Gathering. For this gallery, however, we’ll be sticking to Star Wars. And for Terese, it all started with the X-wing Rogue Squadron: Masquerade trade paperback published in June 2000.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 152 features yet another fantastic interview, this time with the creator of the Forgotten Realms, and author, Ed Greenwood. Jeremiah pulls out some excellent questions for Ed, and Ed does not disappoint with his answers. He shares some great stories about the Forgotten Realms, his part in it, and how things have worked out. If you haven’t read The Herald yet and you’re worried about spoilers, don’t be, this episode is completely spoiler free. A must listen to for Forgotten Realms fans and a good interview to check out for readers in general. The topics Ed discusses have a lot of merit in being applied in other franchises and in different mediums.

Episode 153 is a doubleheader with authors Richard Lee Byers and David Farland (Dave Wolverton). Both authors give some really nice writing advice which is great for anyone who is thinking about or does writing, but it’s also very insightful for readers, giving them a deeper understanding of the tips and tricks of the trade. Plus there’s some discussion about their own books which readers will also enjoy. Really awesome episode and definitely worth a listen.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode #8 includes an interview with Star Wars Rebels voice actress Vanessa Marshall who talks about recording for the show, charity and fans, and what she doesn’t know about A New Dawn. Teresa and Tricia give a quick recap of Star Wars Weekends, and later on, Bethany from the Star Wars Report joins them as they talk about the characters of Star Wars Rebels and the actors of Star Wars Episode VII. Lots of good discussion on all things Star Wars, both television and the movies.

Full of Sith: Episode LXIX features special guests Amy Ratcliffe and ‘Jawa’ James Floyd as they join Bryan and his son at Origins where they talk a little about the convention, Aaron Allston, and Timothy Zahn. It’s pretty brief, and quickly kicks in to Bryan’s interview with Nick Gillard at Salt Lake Fan Experience (audio is courtesy of Bombad Radio, so if you’ve already listened to Bombad Radio’s podcast of the audio for that panel, you’re covered).

Ed Greenwood brings an end to The Sundering with The Herald. However, can his book do the series justice by wrapping up this massive, world changing event in just one final novel? More importantly, can a new reader like me jump into an Ed Greenwood book and fall in love with a character like Elminster so late in his career? Click here to read our full review and find out.
