More Art! Ninjas! Dewbacks! Witches!

I got back from Calgary and then promptly disappeared. The Day Job has been very busy of late, but I managed to sneak off a few pieces of art. Some commissions and inks for Chicago WizardWorld prints follow!

First: COWABUNGAAAA!!111. I drew a rough of this at about midnight one night, and it had to be finished. The coloured version will be wacky. Ninja Turtles ahoy!

Finally, a return card of a foxy witch from the Spellcasters set. This card is going all the way to Italy. Viva Italia!

Secret sets and more Star Wars Galactic Files Sketch Cards

I had forgotten to upload these last cards! Silly me. There are a few I have scanned but I am not posting due to derpiness, so I hope a good natured collector gets those. The secret set is going well and as soon as I can I will announce it.

Tudken Raider, Rancor, Luke Skywalker

Captain tarpals, Aayla Secura, Darth Sidious

More art and a Star Wars Celebration announcement

The announcement is sad. I will not be there, nor will I be at any con this year. The good news out of all that is I am finished with my schooling, I am a Medical Lab Technologist and I will still be making the time for art.

Speaking of which, more Galactic Files cards for your viewing pleasure!

Tauntaun with Han Solo, Boss Nass, Princess Leia

Boga, Eopie, Dianoga

Dewback, Garinda, Greedo

More Galactic Files cards!

That’s right, guys and gals, I have more art. 18 new drawings in 2 days? Shenanigans! And there will be more between this and the secret set and a few commissions. Looks like the mojo has returned.

Star Wars Galactic Files

As promised, here is some new art. This is the first of many updates!

These are cards for the Galactic Files set by Topps, and is the first sketch card set I’ve done in over a year. Feels good to be back in the game again, for sure.

Also! If you are using my contact form to contact me, please make sure your email address is right or I can’t get back to you 🙁

Back in the saddle again

Whoops! It appears that my last few months of my Medical Lab Tech training pushed me off the face of the earth. I am now officially working in healthcare, and have the energy to draw again. Now I just need some approvals so I can post, or I shall draw for me.

Fear not, gentle readers, for I am back and working on many little drawings, and art will be posted in the coming weeks. Fantastic! The first things you will see are new Star Wars cards, as I am working on the Galactic Files set.

I am doing 50 cards in full colour and I have 6 returns up for grabs. Want a return? Shoot me an email!

Another project I am working on is strictly hush-hush and I will give you all the low-down on that as soon as I am able to.

Two personal commissions are on the go, as well. Thank you to my very patient commissioners who understand that I’ve been finishing up school and re-entering the workforce.

Here, have some miniature smartphone pictures. I have been having fun with Instagram. It’s a fun way to chronicle my travels.

Amarans and Ewoks and Sith, oh my!

I have been scribbling, and here are some Amarans, and a random, goofy drawing of my Sith Inquisitor on SWTOR

Amaran Fur and eye colours (Fur can also be black, eyes can be black or, rarely, blue)

Random Amarans!

Star Wars Galaxy 6 cards!

Pardon the radio silence, but I have been knitting and doing exams and celebrating Christmas and such. I made these cards for Topps!

The first three are my return cards. If you’d like to put one on hold, just fire me an email. The others will be inserted randomly into packs.

Lots and los of Ewoks from the cartoon

The mystery of the Ewok Trooper has been solved!

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. 🙂

Star Wars is not Just for Boys

A fan of mine (Thanks, sandi!) and another friend (Hi, Rachyl!) simultaneously sent me a link to an article about a little girl who is being bullied for liking Star Wars.

I have an enormous issue with this, and not just because I draw Star Wars stuff. I actually think the whole girl/boy line in the sand has gotten too solid. Making everything pink to appeal to girls is sickening in itself.

Anyhoo, about this girl.

Bullying over something as silly as what a girl likes is ridiculous. Especially at such a young age.

While there are a ton of strong female characters in the Star Wars galaxy, girls can like Star Wars for anything. The story, the ‘splosions, the droids and action. I loved Boba Fett when I was Katie’s age. He was my absolute favourite character. When Return of the Jedi came out I was Ewok AND Boba Fett crazy.

Boys and girls would play together. It was awesome. Care bears and Cabbage Patch kids were also marketed as gender neutral toys.

Aayla Secura - a strong female character

Then something changed. Even Care Bears are marketed as a toy for girls. Fisher Price is making gender neutral toys like the popcorn popper pink. it makes me sad 🙁

Go support Katie, let her know the boys are being silly and that the people who market things to girls by making them pink are silly, too.

The photo accompanying this post is me, at 11, wearing a pink PJ set (That matched the PJs for my cabbage patch kid, my younger brother had the same PJs, but not pink, including the PJs for HIS cabbage patch kid) with my GT Snoracer and the Grimlock Transformers action figure I wanted more than anything else in the world. I still have Grimlock. When i asked for the transformer I was not told ‘Those are for Boys’.

Parents, kids, everyone, let’s go back to that. The child has a gender, the toys do not.
