Like father, like son and like mother, like son- more Galaxy7 sketchcards

Hey gang. Well I got all 106 of my Star Wars Galaxy 7 sketch cards for Topps completed and sent off before Christmas weekend. Here are a few more to share with you-

Anakin and Luke Skywalker.

Jabba the Hutt and son Rotta (AKA “Stinky”)

Mama and son Ziro.

These 6 will be my artist returns for this set. I’ll have all of my cards on my site’s galleries as soon as they’ve all been approved. Cards should start hitting stores in February 2012.

This week I get started on G7 sketchagraphs. These differ from regular sketch cards because they are autographed by the Star Wars stars, writers, and other creators that are drawn on each card. I’ve got 48 of these to do for this set. Some of the actors include original trilogy stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Peter Mayhew, plus a few of the latest Clone Wars voice actors. Looking forward to working on more of these!

Hope you all had a great Christmas and have a great New Years this weekend.  Hope to see ya in 2012!

BTW- I’ll be the Artist Guest of Honor at Shadowcon XVI in Memphis, TN on January 6th & 7th. I’ll post more about that next week.
