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:

Coming up, I’ll be in South Carolina for SC Con in Greenville, SC  March 20th weekend,  Big Wow Con in San Jose in April 18 and 19 (and happy to see Jim Steranko there again).C2E2 in Chicago April 24 – 26, joined by the team from Artifact, creators of a fun new game for which I’m doing the art that launches at C2E2.

Dave Dorman MARVEL COMICS STAR WARS Variant Cover #1

Dear Friends,
I have finally gotten around to organizing the sale for my Marvel Star Wars #1 Variant. I have been pretty busy this past few weeks, including painting a new variant cover for Marvel’s Darth Vader #2!  This #1 Variant is the variant produced by M&M Comics and limited to 3000. This 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.

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).
It’s great to be back doing more Star Wars covers! I look forward to creating more great art for Marvel. Thank you all for following me as we move into a new era of Star Wars!
Dave.

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

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.
