As You Wish Project

Helmet by Amy Provonost

Finally! Weeks ago, I teased with the notion of some really big news. Unfortunately, the announcement was pushed back, but no longer! With permission from Lucasfilm themselves, I now have permission to announce that I've been invited to take place in the 501st's "As You Wish" Helmet Project!

Last year, at Celebration V, a handful of absurdly talented artists and Star Wars celebrities took on the task of taking Stormtrooper helmets and making them their own. They painted, sculpted, and created some fantastic pieces of art that would later be auctioned off for the Make a Wish Foundation!

I'll be updating my blog,, with weekly updates on the helmet's progress once I get started. That's right, the 501st has asked us to document our helmets in stages to share with the world! I'll be showing you guys how my helmet goes from start to finish! =) And then, of course, it WILL be on display at Celebration VI, and then auctioned off for charity following the event!!!

I'd like to take the opportunity to thank Grant Gould for once again sticking his neck out for me and helping me get this gig. Grant, you are truly the man.

You can check out more about the As You Wish Project here!

And here's a gallery from the last helmet project!

The Siren of Dathomir - Page 7!

The consequences of seducing Clone Troopers finally come to fruition when Captain Fordo lets the Siren of Dathomir know what he thinks of her luring song! Page 7 of my weekly Clone Wars story is now up! But be careful, this one is the SPOILER of the story!

Star Wars Day!

Ahhhh, Star Wars day!

Today, the Heavens rejoice as Star Wars fans get a huge dosage of Star Wars goodness. We've got the entire saga released on Blu-Ray (something Blu-Ray fans have been waiting for since the technology debuted years ago), and of course the Season 4 premiere of The Clone Wars tonight on Cartoon Network! I'm pumped for both!!

Unfortunately I don't have much in the way of an update, but I think I'll be writing a review of the Blu-Rays for next week. In the meantime, here's some more sketch cards! Everyone likes sketch cards!

We Will Never Forget.

Ten years ago today, thousands of innocent people were lost here in New York City.

No matter how you feel about the cause or the effect of this day, there's no denying that September 11th of 2011 was a testament to the potential of courage, selflessness and compassion that we as human beings all possess. A huge percentage of the lives lost were everyday heroes, who risk their necks every day for the line of duty, to keep the rest of us safe.

I'd like to formally thank all of the troops, emergency workers, and civilians alike that had a positive impact on the lives of our fellow Americans that day, and in the days following.

This sketch card is for a good friend of mine who has gone on to become a fire fighter since those dark days for the United States. I'm proud to know him.

September 11, 2011. We will never forget.

Care Package From Canberra!

Drew Ridley, one of my favorite Star Wars fans and supporter of my career alike, was SUPER generous enough to snatch up a Commander Bly Clone Wars figure that I was unable to snag back in 2009, and shipped it to me all the way from Canberra Australia out of the goodness of his heart! And if THAT wasn't enough?! Dude included two awesome Canberra Collectors Club stickers and a SWEET Gentle Giant Bust-Up of Snaggletooth!! BADASS!

I hope Drew realizes that he just started a game of tag, and he's now IT!!! Thanks a BILLION, Drew!!!

Fan Days 2011

I present the banner for's Fan Days 2011 booth! I had a lot of fun doing Rex & co in their new Phase II duds, and agree with my contact at TFN that it would be a great scene to have since Season 4 will have just debuted! Here's a look at the details on Rex, on his own little digi sketch card made just for this blog. =)
