Krypto!

You may have noticed a serious lack of posts from me. That stems from several reasons. I have a few projects I’m laboring away on that I can’t share, that’s not uncommon, but I’ve also taken on a part time job in a retail shop. Mostly tho it’s been because of our dog. Snickers is only six years old and the friendliest, playful and most energetic dog. A few weeks ago, I got up early as always, took out the dog and made breakfast as always. Snickers is like my shadow. Before I sat down to eat, he left my side and went to lie down. And then things got worse. In a matter of hours he became almost paralyzed in his hind legs. He didn’t fall or jump. There was no yelp that he was hurt. It just happened. We took him to the emergency vet, one that we never saw before. Snickers was diagnosed with IVDD. Basically a spinal cord disease that his regular vet failed to diagnose for years and thought he had stomach issues. They couldn’t help him but offered to euthanize him. We took him to Gainesvill…

Obi-Wan's Failure

So new Star Wars art always seems to have a bigger audience and response. I wish there was a better story to go along with this post. Unfortunately, this was a bit of a disappointment. As many of you may know, Star Wars holds an event every two years called Celebration. They don't have a usual artist alley, but instead have a handpicked group that a jury selected of artists that have worked on LucasFilm properties before. You need to apply in short. So a few of my friends have been encouraging me to do so for some time. About a year or so ago, I decided that I would and began work on my submission. Oh. If you were curious about my LucasFilm credentials, I have worked on quite a bit of Star Wars themed M&M's work as well as designing two official t-shirts for the old Star Wars Weekends held at Disney. So I obviously chose Obi-Wan as my subject as he is my favorite character from the Star Wars franchise and I had an idea that I thought would be pretty cool. I set about my w…

Boba Fett and Ursula!

Every so often I get asked to do some commission work. And 90% of the time it's for something totally out of the ordinary. I get it. People are asking for what they want and can't find anywhere else. I guess a drawing of a classic style Superman is too commonplace. Hence the requests for "Batman with a ski hat and a Hawaiian shirt". I don't usually post things of this nature because I feel that it's a personal thing for the one that requested it and that it probably lacks a widespread appeal. So I recently took an "odd" commission and to be honest I took it because of two reasons. Things have been weird and I've lost a huge amount of income this year due to the Covid, and that I have known the person who requested it for more years than I can remember. It was for a wedding gift as well. So the commission, as you can surmise based on the title of this post, was for Boba Fett with Ursula from the Little Mermaid, done in a pin-up style, standing o…
