August Shows

I had planned on August being my most quiet month until November. A mini break between shows. While I was planning that, life just laughed and laughed at me. If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you’d know that I update this site regularly. Definitely weekly. I’m active […]

Rebel

Unexpected Star Wars movie! UNEXPECTED STAR WARS MOVIE!!!!! Have you seen the trailer for Rogue One? Because holy crap! We are getting the backstory for episode IV! We are getting a strong female lead. We are getting classic Star Wars. And I might be a teeny, tiny bit excited. I […]

Chewie, We’re Home

Normally, my new normal, I’d be filling this post full of videos. I certainly recorded enough last night. But the reality is, I am suffering from the tail end of con crud and listening to them today was rather…meh. Stuffy nose and losing my train of thought does not a […]

You Have Your Moments – A Commission for Jenney

Jenney commissioned two paintings from me and I am so thrilled about that. You see, Jenney picked moments that I forgot about and would never have thought to paint. Moments from epic movies and shows like Empire Strikes Back. I haven’t painted ANYTHING from Empire yet, which meant I had […]

You’ve Never Heard of the Millennium Falcon?

  Who doesn’t love Han Solo? Calm. Cool. Completely the original space cowboy (sorry Firefly, but it’s true). He had a badass ship and a fantastic sidekick.   We first meet him in the Cantina on Tatooine. Obi Wan spends some time negotiating his passage to Alderaan. Han is bragging […]

He Is A Little Short For A Stormtrooper

I *might* be on a Star Wars kick. There *may* be a little movie excitement going on here.  But it’s not obvious at all. Huh. Nope. My favourite moment, or one of them anyway, is when Luke pops into Princess Leia’s cell and removes his stormtrooper helmet. He’s bright-eyed and […]

Han Fucking Solo

I’ve been resisting Star Wars fever over the past year. Completely.  Oh, I’m up on the spoilers for the movie. I’ve seen the trailers and the international trailers and what not. They come through my Facebook feed courtesy of my nerd tribe. But getting actually excited? Not so much. Let’s […]

Uncle Owen? Aunt Beru?

The original 1977 Star Wars will always have a place in my heart, in spite of the massive plot and character holes. There’s so much I can say about the film, from the score to the gritty reality of the made-up universe to the characters. The reason it succeeded was […]
