I don’t upload to the site a whole lot, but when I do I stealth add things to the galleries. Much wow! Such awesome!
If you’re looking for more updates, please check out my Facebook Fan Page – I tend to drop things there. I know Facebook can be a bit silly when it comes to feeding updates, I also have Twitter – @artyewok. (I’m also artyewok on Instagram, but I post mostly pet and garden pictures there).
For now, have a dragon kitty, because she’s awesome!
For the past few years I’ve contributed various Wonder Woman themed pieces for Wonder Woman Day in Portland. This year the event has opened up to different female characters, so I chose one of my old favourites – Cheetara. I am a fan of her old, campy outfit. While the new Cheetara is certainly awesome, I am not a fan of her proportions or revealing costume, so I thought I would kick it up oldschool. Thundercats, HO! To get more info, visit the Women of Wonder site.
So here we are. Cheetara!
CCEE has posted their program book, which has a little picture of my artbook contribution in it, so I figure it’s officially safe to show it off. Please, if you’re going to CCEE, pick up one of the artbooks! Proceeds this year go to Make a Wish. Bring it to my table and I’ll sign it, and people who come by with an artbook will get a free postcard or trading card. I am at P09 in the writer/artist guest area, not in the Artist Alley, so come and find me!
The artbook piece is adobe photoshop and to accompany the original, I am very likely going to get a poster printed for the auction.
Hope to see you all in Calgary!
Steve Sansweet with helmet. Click for bigger
When Celebration V hit and my Ewok Trooper helmet made $900 (!) for Make-A-Wish foundation, I’d been wondering who the awesome and mysterious person was who purchased the helmet.
Well, it turns out that good ol’ Steve Sansweet (Who will sadly be leaving Lucasfilm in the spring 🙁 ) purchased the Ewok trooper and he has let me know it will have a very good home. I don’t doubt it 😀 Steve has many awesome Ewok things that I am unbelievably jealous about (like a first cast of the unproduced Chief Chirpa cartoon action figure.. *grabby hands*) that have very good homes.
He sent me a photo as well! Thanks a ton, Steve. 🙂
Celebration V is happening and I am sad to be missing it, but I’m loving the press the 501st helmets are getting.
Cnet has my helmet featured in the photo gallery on this post (With my name misspelled, but I have sent an email to the author)
Starwars.com featured my helmet and a bunch of other sweet ones in their artist roundup!
For those of you who missed it, this is the helmet I customized for the 501st project – for Make A Wish foundation!
I have some new art, but it’s a lot so I’m breaking it up over a few posts. All of my art is in the galleries (hint: Teeny commissions, Clone wars widescreen cards and Custom Sketch cards) but here are a few select cards I really really liked 🙂
More Sketch Cards can be found here. And I added a couple to my deviantart I haven’t added to the site yet 🙂
My helmet is complete and I am able to post it. I’m sending the process to the 501st Project website so they can spill all those details, but here are the pics and some info:
- Ceramcoat paint (lots and lots)
- Pigeon feathers (picked up off the ground)
- leather cord
- dollar store faux tribal necklace for the beads
- Air dry clay
- faux suede (I wanted another colour, but it was on for next to nothing a yard, and this was all they had left)
Check out the 501st project site for more details!
