Hi All,
I have been pretty busy on a number of projects lately; unfortunately most of them I cannot talk about at the moment. However, one thing I can say is that you will be seeing more of my work thru’ Marvel Comics in the months to come! So keep your browser locked on target here and on my Facebook pages for more info as I am able to release them. (One of the projects I never thought I would do… but I may get a chance to paint a comics iconic character soon that I have never done before, and that is RARE!!)
Today I am posting a group of pencil artworks for sale. I have had a lot of collectors asking if my Pencil art from Star Wars #1 and Darth Vader #2 will be for sale. Well, here they are! These are my final pencils before I go to painting, showing all of the detail I need to render the image in oils and acrylics. You can find this sale on this page of my website–link here:

Dear Friends,
For those who missed it, or were disappointed that the issue was sold out…GOOD NEWS!! I have received another shipment of the Marvel Variant STAR WARS books and have a few more to sell. 
Here’s the spiel again!
This is the variant produced by M&M Comics and limited to 3000This number makes it one of the scarcest variants on the market.(And a personal thanks goes out to Mike at M&M for having me paint this cover!)
I am now selling my variant cover issue for $25 including postage and insurance. 
Order my Star Wars Variant #1 from this page: http://bitly.com/DDSWVariant1
BUT WAIT!!!…There’s more! You not only get a mint copy of this book signed by me, (bagged and boarded), but I will also include in your package one additional item from my personal vault of collectibles.These will be all Star Wars items (signed of course) that may include convention programs, signature cards, trading cards, bookmarks, or other collectibles from my files, dating back almost 30 years. Most of these extras are hard to find and will make a fun addition to your Dorman Star Wars collection (like a mini-Dorman LootCrate!)
I have a very limited number of these so please do not hesitate in ordering. I must limit the purchase to one copy per person.  I will remove the page when I have sold out. (It is possible I may get more in the future, but that is not guaranteed).
SHOW APPEARANCE NEWS:
Thanks to all of you who saw me at Pensacon – a wonderful show!

Dear Friends,
One of many DAVE DORMAN STAR WARS ARTIST PROOFS ON SALE NOW.

One of many DAVE DORMAN STAR WARS ARTIST PROOFS ON SALE NOW.

For those that responded to my last blog and Facebook posting, I appreciate your kind words and support. While it was disheartening to get that news, it will not be my last opportunity to create new Star Wars art. Keep your bookmarks here for coming news of more projects ahead!
As most of you know by now, I will not be attending SW Celebration 7 next year. I had planned on having a sale at Celebration of what was left of my Artist Proofs of previous year’s Celebration prints, along with the new exclusive print. Since that isn’t happening, and I’ve had a lot of fans and collectors asking if I was going to have a Holiday Print Sale this year, I’ve decided to hold it now. Here is the link to my Star Wars Holiday Prints Sale:
http://www.davedorman.com/2014swprintsforsale.shtml
Each print on the webpage has a PayPal button for ordering and if you want to buy more than one it will make a shopping cart for you. **Shipping is FREE worldwide.**
I am now offering the last of my Artist Proofs at a substantial discount for a limited time (I will take this sale down on Dec. 31st, so those who have gift funds after the holidays that they would like to spend here may do so before the sale ends.)
All Star Wars Dave Dorman Prints You Purchase Will Be:
  • Signed By Me
  • Marked an an A/P (Artist’s Proof).
  • I will be happy to personalize the prints for you as well. (You can leave a note on the Paypal purchase form).
  • Extra Bonus–As a thank you for all your support over the years, I will add small remarque (original pencil drawing) on every print that is ordered at no extra charge.
  • Sent out using Paypal’s shipping, which will include a notification to you of when your order shipped and a tracking number to follow your shipment.
  • All orders in the U.S. made before Dec. 19 will get to you before Christmas.
 I only have a limited number of these prints left, and this sale may be the last time some or most of these will be available.
AND A RARE FIND: I also have one more newly discovered print from my private collection to offer for the first time on my webpage. This is “Knockin on Jabba’s Door” — a small 11×14 print produced as an incentive for purchasing the now out-of-print “Jabba’s Palace ” print.
So go ahead and check out the page. I hope you find something you like that might brightens your holidays, birthday, or special occasion, or those of your loved ones.
Thank you again for all of your support of my work over the years. Every smile and handshake at a show, or email or private message on Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter unexpectedly saying you like my work, makes my enjoyment of this work grow more and more.
As always, my own I.P., the WASTED LANDS OMNIBUS book (published by Magnetic-Press) special gift offer is still available, and that link is here:

Be Well, All, #MTFBWY, and please Tweet out #DaveDormanPrintSale!

Star Wars Celebration: Dave Dorman Artwork Rejected

Posted in Comic Book Artist, DAVE DORMAN NEWS, Geek, Geek Culture, Pop Culture, Star Wars, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on November 18, 2014 by DaveandDeniseDorman

Hi All.

Well, now that Lucasfilm has announced the artists selected for the SW Celebration 7 Art Show, I can publicly confirm that I was not selected to participate this year. It is with great sadness and disappointment that I am now announcing this, but the judging has been made, and there is no reversing that.

The judging was done differently this year, asking for comps of the art proposed, then submitted anonymously to be judged. There was no respect for the reputation or the years of good will put in by any artist–just the comp, rough, or finished art submitted for approval.

So…here was my piece–a color rough featuring Vader continuing to pursue the genocide of the Jedi after Order 66. I guess I missed the mark in idea… or perhaps not doing a more finished rough..it’s not EU… ties directly into the gap between EP3 and 4…

The Path Not Taken: Rejected Dave Dorman Star Wars Celebration Concept Art

The Path Not Taken: Rejected Dave Dorman Star Wars Celebration Concept Art

I don’t know. And because the judged submissions were anonymous and a one shot deal, I will never know.

What I do know is that I will not have a print available this year at Celebration, nor will I be attending Celebration to support it.

I thank all you who have supported me through the 6 Celebrations (including Europe) where I sold out of prints, and the first Celebration in Denver, which I attended only as a fan. I would like to thank the 501st for their support and helping unselfishly when called to pose for me.

I hope to see you all at Celebration 8…if the Force is still with me.

Take care,

Dave.

Dave Dorman on WTTW “CHICAGO TONIGHT” TV Show at 7:20 p.m. Tomorrow

Dear Friends,

 

Original Art Price: $2,000. Dave Dorman Darth Maul cover for Dark Horse Comics

Dave Dorman’s Darth Maul cover art for Dark Horse Comics

If you’ve been missing seeing my Star Wars art, be sure to watch CHICAGO TONIGHT on Channel 11 WTTW in Chicago tomorrow night at 7:20 p.m. We will be talking about my Star Wars art career, my longtime relationship with Lucasfilm, Dark Horse Comics, and the importance and cultural impact of the new Lucas Museum of Narrative Art--or as we fans call it–“The! New! Star Wars Museum! In! Chicago!” George Lucas and his wife Mellody Hobson have been enormously generous to the City of Chicago already, donating millions of dollars to our children’s educations, and I am very happy they recognize the outpouring of love and enormous respect Chicago has for them both.

See you tomorrow in TV Land!

If you can, please “Like” my Facebook Fan Pages & follow me on social media. They are as follows:

And a special thanks to WriteBrain Media–the best publicist/wife a guy could have for booking this one for me, and to Jock Hedblade, our friend and media trainer, who just won his 3rd Emmy Award today.

Dear Friends,

Happy Father’s Day to all of you dads out there. For me, being a dad is the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done and if you’re waffling about doing it and you’re a responsible human, I highly recommend it. Here’s a recent photo of Jack and me from Pensacon, taken by our photographer friend Fred Turnbow:

A fan at Indy PopCon came up to my booth a couple of weekends ago wearing this tee:

…and he was kind enough to send me one. It’s in Disney stores and the t-shirt maker is a company called Mad Engine. This art is a segment of my Star Wars Celebration V (5) art, from a painting called “A Slight Disturbance in the Force.”  Here is the original for your recollection:

A special thanks to everyone who came out to see me at Star Wars Library Day in Joliet, Illinois – the world’s largest Star Wars Library event, now in its 5th year. It was a lot of fun and gratifying to see my Midwestern Star Wars family.

Next up on my convention schedule is Capital City Con in Austin, TX July 11, 12 and 13. I hope to reconnect with our friends who are like family –the Nick & Michele Iozzo family, and cousins Dan and Sue Bailey in Austin as well as Bernie Wrightson. You can count on my wife to do her level best to “Keep Austin Weird.”

We found some old photos I took in the 1970s of Bernie Wrightson and his contemporaries, including Jeffrey Catherine Jones, Barry Windsor-Smith, Walt Simonson and more. I think you’ll enjoy seeing them as I scan them in and post them here.

Also in July, you will see me at San Diego Comic-Con, Booth #4500 July 23 – 27. I am especially excited this year to launch my new WASTED LANDS OMNIBUS book by Magnetic Press and Mike Kennedy. Click here to pre-order: http://www.magnetic-press.com/wasted-lands-omnibus/

WASTED LANDS OMNIBUS: by Magnetic Press, Launching at SDCC 2014

We will have books to sell and sign at our booth as well as the Magnetic Press Booth. I don’t have a Booth # for Magnetic Press yet, but they are located in Publisher’s Row between Taschen and Last Gasp, behind Random House.

Joining me will be my WASTED LANDS rep and producer Scott Faye, and a portion of the booth will be shared by Stephen D. Smith, who did the wonderfully successfully Kickstarter campaign for the very first English translation of the book, The Leaning Girl, and we will have one of my favorite artists, Francois Schuiten and writer Benoit Peeters in our booth.  Here is the cover art for that book:

I am also on Reddit and if any of you want me to do a live Q & A there or a Tweet Chat on Twitter, just let me know and I’ll get it set up.

Also, you may want to check out my wife Denise Dorman’s blog, for a rare peek behind the curtain of life in the Dorman Household: http://comicbookwife.com. She is making me homemade potato salad for Father’s Day, which is a treat for me.

Thanks for reading & have a great day!

Dave.
