Spencer Brinkerhoff III started drawing and making art at an early age and has never stopped. After graduating from University, he put his full range of skills to work. He sculpted some of the horses for the PF Chang's restaurants, animated an educational game for the World Health Organization, created and starred in a video that won him Burt Reynolds' Trans Am. Then all the way back in 2008 he was invited to participate in the first-ever Star Wars Celebration event in Japan, and he has been part of the Star Wars artist family ever since.
In addition to working on these popular licensed projects, he set out to make a few projects of his own. He has created an in-camera special effect keychain called LightStickFX (it magically adds laser beams to your photos), and a drawing method called #DrawingIsSimple (DIS, simply trace around the patented coin, mark the guides and you've already started drawing!), and has written and illustrated his most recent book which was published in 2020. We can't wait to show you what he's come up with next!
