Clifford Hope

Cliff has been working in publishing for more years than he cares to remember. His sub-editing skills have been put to good use on academic, computing, creative and motoring publications, including ImagineFX, Computer Arts, Paint & Draw, Linux Format and Total 911. He particularly admires the work of concept artists such as Doug Chiang, Matt Allsopp and Christian Alzmann, who have shaped the look of Star Wars films and series such as The Mandalorian, Rogue One and The Force Awakens. Even The Phantom Menace's leaden script can't detract from its imaginative visuals!
