Craig Skaggs Illustration
I started my career as an artist in 1983 illustrating children's books for a small publishing company when I was a junior in high school. In the early nineties I became a full-time freelancer working for multiple advertising agencies, and publishers of teaching material. I was then picked by Skywalker Ranch to illustrate licensed Star Wars art when they were re-releasing episodes 4, 5 and 6 with new special effects. I also began designing all kinds of toys and products for over thirty companies, doing illustrations for several magazine, game, comic, children's book and journal publishers, and I was a cover artist for Random House Pub. and Wings Press for several years. Seven years ago I became a lead medical illustrator for the American College of Cardiology, and the Journal of Allergy and Immunology. About three years ago I started doing conventions, and fine art gallery shows. Just recently I've started doing illustrations for Altered Creatures Pub., and toy design work for SG labs.
