Star Wars Sketch cards and Collectors Expo Wrap Up. ...And 100th Post

   Yes, that's right, 100th post, and for me, that's something. (I'll post more about that at another time)

Getting right to it, I just thought I'd say a few words about this past CECE convention in Chicago. I was there all 3 days, although Sunday was short for me as I had a plane to catch. It was a really good show and I had a great time seeing friends and people I haven't seen in awhile or have even met before. I sat next to John Czop who I haven't seen in ages and the Tosers were behind us. (These show pics were supplied by Harris from Nonsport Update, Thanks Harris!) It was a fun section. The second pic Randy Martinez stopped by and chatted for awhile. It was cool meeting him and Denise Vasques, and all the other artists were very friendly as well. The Celebrity dinner and presentations were very cool too and I'm so glad I went. I can't recommend this show enough, you have to attend.

   A special thank you goes out to Paul and Diane (and Cherie).  True class acts and some of the best people I have the honor of calling friends. They really know how to treat their guests and make you feel like your not just another name on a list. Most conventions I'm stuck behind my table the whole time, I don't eat well, I don't get much sleep, and I'm a waste product by the time it's over. This show is different and they make sure you eat and they go out of their way to get you what you need when you need it. On top of that, what they do for charity work is down right moving. The Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation work they did and auction they had set up was inspirational. Thank you for being such good people.

  Speaking of the Charity Chest auction, here are the Sketch cards I did for the Treasure Chests. Working with Topps, they were able to get the OK to do official Star Wars images on the sketches. Seeing as how I've never done any before I thought this was a good time to start.

  So for all the emails asking me to post them, here are the 9 Star Wars cards I did for it.  









Hope you enjoyed them.

Later
WM

Warren: The sketches are great! I can't believe you haven't done Star Wars sketches before. It's really cool to see these here, especially knowing they are your first Star Wars cards.

And I can't agree with you more about the Chicagoland Show and how Paul treats everyone who attends and exhibits as well as the work he does for Charity. Paul is a class act. Everyone should try and get out to this show.

Thanks.
