A-24 Sleuth by Rob-Caswell A-24 Sleuth by Rob-Caswell
HOLY CRAP - it's like Christmas and Vilardi Claus has left me a bunch of presents?!?!? My old buddy, Mike Vilardi (aka caesar120) [link] was accidentally mailed my art on return from West End Games back in the early 90's. He only now mailed it back to me and I'm stunned. First, I don't really remember doing these, and second... wow, they're tight and well-drawn! Hard to believe I had these skills! ;p It's like seeing many of these pieces for the first time!

The whole batch was from West End's Star Wars RPG. I've long forgotten the details on the subject, but this seems to be a Rebel ship - the A-24 Sleuth, my dated notes tell me. I'm also guessing it might be an Incom manufacture? At any rate, it's my design from long ago (in a studio far, far away...), executed with ink on tone board.

FUN!

I loved that game. I loved the ship art and I loved the stats and write-ups. WEG Star Wars has been a huge influence on me. I still have most of the books and I still sometimes just read Pirates and Privateers and Stock Freighters (the two big ship books) just for the sake of reading them and getting inspired.

Very cool! As I've said to others it's really gratifying to hear that these old pics got stuck in people's brains. Some of my ships, like the Wild Karrde, became major players, but ships like the A-24 largely are remembered by only one or two appearances. I'm flattered to be part of your "inspiration library" :D
