Chicago Tonight Interviews Dave Dorman

One of Hevanston Gallery's featured artists in the "Into Dreams - The Illustrators" exhibit, Dave Dorman, was interviewed by Phil Ponce on Channel 11's Chicago Tonight program last night. Phil asked Dave about his decades long career as a legendary illustrator and painter, as well as, what are Dave's thoughts on the proposed Lucas Museum of the Narrative Arts. George Lucas owns as many as 70-80 of Dave's original paintings and have known each other since Dave's work on the LucasArts Indiana Jones franchise. Sit back and enjoy.
