Artist - Boba Fett's Designer

Art director / visual effects creator on The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. He is now a major director, having completed The Rocketeer (1991), Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, Jumanji, and October Sky. His most recent project was Hidalgo. He also directs ads for ILM's commercial department.

Super Troopers "I designed the final version of Boba Fett. Ralph and I both worked together on preliminary designs, and we traded ideas back and forth. Originally, Boba Fett was part of a force we called Super Troopers, and they were these really high-tech fighting units, and they all looked alike. That eventually evolved into a single bounty hunter. I painted Boba’s outfit and tried to make it look like it was made of different pieces of armor. It was a symmetrical design, but I painted it in such a way that it looked like he had scavenged parts and had done some personalizing of his costume; he had little trophies hanging from his belt, and he had little braids of hair, almost like a collection of scalps."
