Request submitted on: 09:50, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Request submitted by: Greyman(Talk)

Purpose: To help push along WP:TOTJ, and to possibly add some BtS info to the large selection of Tales of the Jedi character FA's, a number of which were first drawn by Janine Johnston. She was also one of the first artists contracted to work on Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi, so gathering her views and perspectives on that time, and the work she did, would be an invaluable source of information.


After a recent expansion, Janine Johnston's article here meets the requirements. After the success I had with interviewing both Kevin J. Anderson and Tom Veitch, I believe that only good things will come out of conducting more interviews with more Tales of the Jedi VIPs. Also, per my reasoning in the "Purpose" section, and of course with Ms. Johnston's consent to do an interview with me. Greyman(Talk) 09:50, 8 August 2008 (UTC)


I just wanted to post this here so people didn't think that this interview request had died. I've been in fairly frequent communication with Janine via email over the last month and she advised me (actually, a few weeks ago) that she would be getting to my interview questions near the end of October or beginning of November. She is currently travelling, so that is why there has been a mild delay. Anyways, just letting those who are curious know that this request is still alive and kicking :) Expect the completed interview shortly. Greyman(Talk) 17:04, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Subject: Interview request

Hi, Ms. Johnston.

My name is REDACTED, and I am an administrator on the Star Wars fan site known as “Wookieepedia.” Since March of 2005, this site and its members have documented over 57,700 articles on anything and everything to do with the Star Wars universe – and it continues to grow with each passing day. Part of my main enjoyment when I am able to find time to write, is helping expand any sort of article which originates from the Tales of the Jedi saga. Following some interviews that I was privileged enough to conduct with both TotJ authors Tom Veitch and Kevin J. Anderson, some of my fellow administrators on the site decided that interviews with more Star Wars VIPs should be encouraged, and so I have sought you out in the hopes that you would be able to spare a few minutes, and talk about your time as an artist drawing for Star Wars, and more specifically Tales of the Jedi.

Due to a number of circumstances, communication via this email address would probably be best for both you and I, if that is ok with you. Let me assure you that I more than respect your privacy, and I am more than willing to conduct any sort of communication via your request/demands/conditions. I understand that as a former employee for LFL and Dark Horse Comics, there exists the possibility that there might be areas or topics that you are not able to discuss in detail; rest assured, if such topics do exist, I respect and understand that, and only want to conduct this interview per the boundaries you are comfortable with. Again, whatever, if anything, that you are willing to discuss with me would be more than appreciated.

REDACTED unrelated conversation.

Again, I thank you for your time, and I look forward to further communication with you.
