CM illustrator JAKe interviewed at StarWars.com

Regular readers of

Computer Music

will be familiar with the brilliant graphical stylings of JAKe, the pensman behind our Burning Question illustrations. As well as

CM

, Jake has also had work published in

NME

,

Time Out

,

Esquire

and

Vox

, not to mention creating the visuals for the inside of Prodigy's

Fat Of The Land

album sleeve and turning the mentalist creations of Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt into a comic strip for

The Mighty Book of Boosh

.

However, by far JAKe's biggest gig is his work as an official

Star Wars

artist for Lucas Licensing, and his stylised takes on George Lucas' characters have adorned everything from T-shirts to fridge magnets, pyjamas and even postage stamps.

As part of their Star Wars Artist series, StarWars.com have posted an

interview

with the man himself. It's a great read, and it makes us feel hugely privileged to have JAKe as part of the, er, CM universe.
