"Last Chance to Bail Out"
("Letzte Chance zum Absprung")
| ||On July 24, 2003,
I received an e-mail from Foote, Cone & Belding, the ad agency in San Francisco, California, asking me if I would be interested in doing a painting of World War II airplanes for a new video game called "Secret Weapons over Normandy". Totally Games and LucasArts were producing the game. Watching the movie "Star Wars" for the first time as a young teenager, I had always dreamed of doing work for LucasArts, so I was absolutely thrilled about the opportunity. Since the painting was for an ad campaign promoting the game's release in November, 2003, I knew the production of the painting would be on a tight schedule. I began corresponding with the art director at Foote, Cone & Belding for the project, and the painting was done in 30 days. The staff at Foote, Cone & Belding
were very professional and wonderful to work with, and it was a very rewarding project to be a part of.
The ad for "Secret Weapons over Normandy" has appeared in many video game magazines as well as aviation
related magazines. The original painting is now the property of LucasArts, all rights reserved, and the
image is used with their permission.
