Cliff Cramp - Artist
STAR WARS - THE ART COLLECTION BY CLIFF CRAMP
I enjoy old things; old cars which I like to tinker on, old houses which I would like to live in some day, old furniture which I like to restore, and elderly people who I enjoy talking with. I live with my wonderful wife and two energetic boys in sunny Southern California.
My artistic influences include John Singer Sargent, Howard Pyle, Harvey Dunn, NC Wyeth, James Montgomery Flagg, and Dean Cornwell. My contemporary influences are too numerous to list.
In his twenty-plus years as a professional Cliff has contributed his skills to a wide range of media — including animation, comics, music, games, books, and editorials — for companies as diverse as Lucasfilm's, 20th Century Fox, United Artists, MGM Studios, Trailer Park, Shout Factory, Hollywood Records, Nickelodeon TV Animation, Disney Entertainment, Warner Bros, DC Comics, Acme Archives Direct, Penguin Books, Philomel Books, Ingram Micro, Menagerie Creative, and Dik Entertainment, among others.
The artist enjoys licensing deals associated with Lucasfilm, Fox, Bungie, DreamWorks, and Disney — allowing him to legally work on their intellectual properties and earning Cliff awards and accolades in several genres. Lucasfilm/20th Century Fox via Menagerie Creative picked Cramp — out of a top list of talent — to illustrate the collectible Blue Ray covers for Star Wars: The Complete Saga, Star Wars: Episodes 1 to 3, and Star Wars: Episodes 4 to 6. Currently, Corel features his works as exemplars in their Painter software and includes the artist among their ranks of Master Elites. He lives in sunny Southern California.
