Young GEORGE LUCAS likeness for Ridley Scott's "Prophets of Science Fiction" on The Science Channel

I'm drawing motion comics for Ridley Scott's "Prophets of Science Fiction" the George Lucas episode for The Science Channel and trying to get the likeness down. So weird seeing him younger. Fine beard and mane, sir! So, how am I doin'?

These are some actual frames from the show. I had created them to be animated, so the arms, hands, head, waste, everything could be moved separately. The find show didn't have enough time to do as much as we all hoped, but it still turned out awesome!

George Lucas with his imagination showing.
Pitching Star Wars to execs who just didn't get it. (Funny sequence in the show)
Look at those dorks. Those film execs from the 70s are some fun cameos of my long-time friends (who weren't born until the 80s) John Johnson & Jeremy Fiest.
Concept Artist Ralph McQuarrie & George Lucas. It was an honor to draw him. He passed away shortly after I did. :(
George Lucas was in a nearly fatal car accident in 1962 just after graduating high school. It almost stopped him, but was also his inspiration. To learn the rest of that story, check out Ridley Scott's "Prophets of Science Fiction" on The Science Channel. Really interesting story!

"These aren't the droids you're looking for."
(That was a hard hand gesture to not make look weird!)

Sheer Awesomeness. Your images of the young Lucas are superb. Since you grok the idea of the young directors of that era, come see the artwork of young Scorsese and Coppola Hounds Comics illustrator Jay Reed did for OUR production! Check out the TV series "Movieopolis" on Facebook and take look at recent posts.

Young George Lucas is a character in our episode currently in production. I think fans will be pleased...
