I am fortunate enough to have met Mike once, and had dinner with him. I've since lost his contact info, which is a shame. He is a great guy, though, and I bought a few original pieces from him.

This is my small collection of his stuff.

This one's my favorite:

I've always loved the Coynites and I use them in every game I run.

Great artwork fogger1138

I love this guy's illustrations, always one of my favourite parts of the WEG books. So much character and world building in such limited space.

This guy is the best WEG artist in my opinion. Was able to correspond with him a couple of years ago and he was the nicest guy.

He has a deviant art account with a lot of his WEG art on it. Doesn't seem like he has been active since 2018 when he had a health scare. Hopefully he is well.

https://www.deviantart.com/caesar120 for those would like to see examples of his art.

Thanks for the link! I've copied a bunch of his color images for use in many of my games, SW and others.

To me, Vilardi is up there with McQuarrie and Joe Johnson in terms of how much their art created and affected me with Star Wars. I really wish I had the chance to correspond with him at least once.

You could try messaging him through his deviantart page. No idea if he still checks it but it might be worth trying.

I pinged him on there. Doubt he'll reply as its been a number of years but nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I dug up the last email address I had from him and did the same - if he responds, I'll see how he feels about me sharing it.
