These Star Wars portraits are the original pieces that I did for the latest Maverix Art Auction, held last night. Additionally, I submitted three signed and framed prints from my Dad’s Elephant Book.

Over this past week I rented and watched the original three Star Wars movies, and as I’d already been doodling the characters, I decided to tidy up a few and submit them to the show, when I couldn’t think of any better ideas. The Princess LEIA was won by Mike Murnane, The YODA by Hop Matsuo, and the LUKE by Bosco Ng. I am happy to say that I won some GREAT pieces myself and I will have a full report on the Auction in a few days, when the all numbers are tallied up and the photographs come in… So Stay tuned!

(PS: Check out this post for my version of Han Solo and Chewbacca.)

Frequent visitors to this blog will have noticed that I have Star Wars on the brain at the moment… Here’s a little doodle (3×4 inches) of Princess LEIA done while watching TV last night..

You’ve all no doubt heard of HAN SOLO, but what about his sister; TRUMPET SOLO? (That nugget of internet gold courtesy of CHRIS.)

Some fans of RED SQUADRON made a great, life-sized X-Wing rocket that actually takes off! Not to be outdone, GOLD SQUADRON fans staged their own Y-Wing rocket launch! (Thanks to MICHEAL MAY for these links.)

Behold this collection of Star Wars Pixel art. (Sent to me by MR. BKON!)

UPDATE: Here is the FINAL INKED VERSION.
