After spending 10 years as a graphic designer for online training courses, Spencer decided to try his hand at being an illustrator. He debuted his art work in 2008 at the Star Wars Celebration in Japan and the San Diego Comic Con, where his animated short was a finalist in the Star Wars Fan movie challenge. He's also created sketch cards for Lord of the Rings, Marvel, Indiana Jones and The Clone Wars.
As one of five illustrators approved for the Star Wars Artist series on Zazzle, Spencer's illustrations have been used on Mugs T-shirts and have even found there way into LEGO sets. He has also created an anniversary print for Back to the Future, and shot, edited, and starred in a video contest to win a restro-modded Trans Am from Mr. Burt Reynolds.
His prints create an animated version of familiar movies scenes with a cinematic depth of field. He has gone on to incorporate that depth of field into his layered acrylic ShadowBox art, and has even created a interactive digital image viewing platform called ShadowBox Comics.
