"It's so strange getting paid for things I used to do in my teens just for fun."
―Mike Vilardi

Mike Vilardi was an illustrator for numerous West End Games roleplaying books, articles, and short stories. Vilardi enjoyed creating new alien species,[1] and repeated a number of original designs throughout his work, such as a stalk-eyed species.

His work was frequently highly spoken of others involved in Star Wars products, such as Dan Wallace, who described his work as "constantly a joy,"[2] or Peter Schweighofer who described Vilardi's work as "incomparable."[3] Current Star Wars artist Amy Pronovost also names Vilardi as one of her major influences.[4]
