Topps will soon be releasing a new Star Wars trading card set.  I’m pretty excited to be a part of this set as an artist on “sketch cards”.  I’ll be doing an undisclosed amount, not trying to spoil the surprise.  I’ll be releasing a few previews of what I’ve done when I’m able to.

Until then, here are a few concept’s and test paintings.

Fan Days Oct 8th and 9th

This weekend is Fan Days in Irving, Texas.  I’ll have a table in Artists Alley, I’ll be joined by my wife and this is some of what we will be bringing with us.  If you’re in the area come by and check it out.  Lots of great guests, great artists, and fun Star Wars times for everyone.

This is just a small assortment of items, all are original and no prints.  We’ll have lots more with us that’s not pictured here.

“You know, I think that R2 unit we bought may have been stolen.”

October 8th and 9th Official Pix will be hosting Fan Days at the Irving Convention Center in Irving, TX.

In May I had a table in Artist’s Alley for the Dallas Comic Con.  We had a blast, it was our first convention, and it was awesome.  The staff was friendly and helpful, the other artists were cool to meet, and the attendees were pretty amazing.  My wife and I had a great time and we are both looking forward to Fan Days.

So, I’ve decided to do a Fan Days exclusive set.  These 4 pieces will only be available at Fan Days, they are limited to one set and they will not be reproduced.  All are original, on natural wood, and they can actually interlock together as well. All of these are hand painted, and not prints.  They are approx 4″x6″ and 1/2″ deep.
