Dear Friends,I did the artwork for my friend’s podcast – here is information on it for my fellow STAR WARS fans:The show is It’s a Trap! with original artwork created by Dave Dorman and is meant to discuss each piece of the new Disney approved standard of Star Wars Canon with an eye to point out anything new being brought in from the now Legend-s story arc. We hope to reach people that want to know what happens, but don’t have the time to read/watch, or people that have already consumed the story and want to hear our thoughts, what we caught, and hopefully might be willing to let us know what we missed! We are committed to putting out at least fortnightly until such a time as our listeners make us move to a weekly production format.

I am here at Denver Comic-Con this weekend (show ends Monday), so please come see me if you’re in the ‘hood. I’m at the very end of “Aisle I” in Artists Alley. If I’m not there, I’m in the BattleKasters Booth, which is in the “game room.” I did the art for their mobile app game, which is being released this weekend, but I can share it here.
And another piece:
Also, a dear fan created this for me on Facebook (this is a photo taken of me this weekend at Denver Comic-Con) and I promised him I would post it, so here it is:
If you’re in Chicagoland and you’re a #comics fan, join us tomorrow at REEL ART in Berwyn, IL–one of the most gi-normous emporiums of comics and pop culture collectibles you’ll find (where Denise Dorman bought me my “Big Wednesday” film poster last year, as seen below):
Please join me and a few of my comic book artist and illustrator friends tomorrow from 1 – 3 p.m. – I’ll have original art, prints and autographs are ALWAYS free:

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…
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.
