Art from a Galaxy Far, Far Away

OK, so you already know I love, love, love Star Wars, right? And it just so happens that I have quite a few friends that love it, as well. Does that surprise you?

It shouldn't.

32,000 Star Wars fanatics paid the admission price of $145 for the four-day Star Wars Celebration V held in Orlando, Florida. That's right...32,000 people who feel exactly the way I do about the saga. It was worth it to them to fly, pay for hotel and event, eat at spendy restaurants and ship their costumes from all over the country. And why, you ask? Because Star Wars rocks, that's why!  Oh, and they get to hang out with all the other Star Wars 'geeks' for four days; four days of nothing but Star Wars - celebrities, panels, workshops, fan films, costumes, autographs, sneak-peeks, artists and collectors, etc., etc.  The thought is almost overwhelming!

just some of the Star Wars stamps I have carved over the years (actual size 8.5" x 11")

Below is the latest artwork from a few of my Star Wars-loving friends - they are so wonderful, I definitely wanted to share.  I'll start with my oh-so-fun 'swap book' featuring the amazing card by my very own Padawan.  I will be honored to share this collection of art with my Star Wars friends at conventions and gatherings.
