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!

Dedicated Star Wars Fan Gets Dave Dorman Art Tattooed On Entire Back

Dear Friends,

Much to my surprise, posted on the Facebook 501st Legion Fan Page was a fan and tattoo artist (who was doing tattoos at Celebration in Germany) named Tomi Demolka, who permanently committed my art to his back – in particular, my Star Wars art piece, Lord Vader’s Persuasion of the Outer Rim. I’m sharing his images here – the Tattoo Artist is Sławek Fronczek from Tattoo.pl (Poznan, Poland), and I think he did a terrific job of capturing the art:

LOS ANGELES, CA—March 1, 2013— Dave Dorman’s “Dorothy Daydreams” original painting will be included in the upcoming Creature Features Visions of Oz gallery art show being held at the Heritage Square Museum in Los Angeles, California from March 3 – 31. Dorman’s painting, rendered traditionally in oil and acrylic mediums, is a visual homage to the L. Frank Baum literary classic Oz books.

Said Dorman, “It was an honor to be invited to participate in this tribute. For Dorothy Daydreams, I returned to the spirit of L. Frank Baum’s young protagonist, capturing some of her desire to escape the harsh and desolate reality of her Kansas dustbowl farm for the fantasy of a much more colorful, imaginary world.” Dorman will be showing the art progressives from pencil illustration to final painting this weekend on this blog.

Frank Baum books, props, concepts and artwork from various Oz-themed film & TV projects and many more surprises.
