To be honest, illustrator and creature designer Terryl Whitlatch was someone that I was absolutely unfamiliar with prior to hosting her panel on the main stage at Spectrum Fantastic Art Live 2. The first time that I had heard her name was when she was named a Special Guest on the Spectrum website.
Shame on me.
However, in my preparation for the panel, I found her work to be fascinating and I bubbled over with questions to ask. I and the panel audience learned about her life-long passion for animals both real and imagined, how she creates the phyisiology of fantastic creatures for film and her involvement with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and the creation of Jar-Jar Binks. Plus we learn about her creator-owned book The Katurran Odyssey with writer David Michael Wieger.
A big thanks to Terryl for being a delight and enlightening me on a subject that I knew nothing about and a huge thanks to the attendees for their excellent questions.
