May The 4th Be With You

Happy Star Wars Day 2015! It’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan. With a new season of Rebels out in June, Episode VII: The Force Awakens due in December and Rogue One planned for 2016, there’s much to be excited about. This year, I chose to pay tribute to Rey and her weird, ice cream bar-shaped speeder. Can’t wait to find out more about who she is. Skywalker? Solo? Time will tell.

May the force be with you… always!

The Academy Awards air live this Sunday on ABC.

Star Wars Awakens At WonderGround Gallery

MayTheForceBeWithYou_FINAL_REVISED[1]Disney’s WonderGround Gallery has made so many of my dreams come true. Working with Disney characters, seeing my images sold in the gallery and having my artwork featured on Disney pins are all goals achieved thanks to the great folks at WonderGround and Disney. And now I am so grateful to them for making yet another dream of mine come true.

This January, I will have new Star Wars art featured in the gallery. Star Wars has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. The films, toys and spin-offs have entertained and inspired me since first seeing A New Hope in theaters in 1977. With new films on the horizon and Star Wars mania working itself into a frenzy once again, I am honored to be able to pay tribute to these timeless characters with my artwork.

I will be appearing at Disney’s WonderGround Gallery on Friday and Saturday – January 16th and 17th from 6-8pm. Read about the event on Disney’s Blog.

This just also happens to be the weekend of Disney’s Star Wars Half Marathon. So, if you’re in town for the race, drop on by the gallery Friday and Saturday to check out all the new art and merchandise.
