Internationally published as an artist and writer at the age of nineteen, Christian Gossett was one of the first designers hired by Lucasfilm Licensing to retro-design the Star Wars galaxy in 1993. Gossett was only 23 years old when his radical concept drawing of a ‘double-bladed lightsaber’ was approved by George Lucas. Bringing his unique talent to designing characters and weapons for the film and videogame industry, Gossett’s character and concept designs have been sought by such visionaries as George Lucas, Peter Jackson, and Tim Burton for Disney’s Alice in Wonderland. Gossett also directed and co-wrote fan-made Star Trek short film Prelude to Axanar. His graphic novel The Red Star sold over a million units worldwide, was voted among the “Top 100 graphic novels of all time” by Wizard magazine, and is one of the most critically acclaimed independent comics series of the decade. Successfully launched as a PS2 / PS3 game, The Red Star is now in development as a feature film at Warner Brothers.
