Star Wars show and Trading Cards

We had a very small local show with Star Wars theme Sunday afternoon. I took the basics: stickers, postcards, trading cards and prints, along with a few samples of books. I only wanted to deal with one box, so it had to fit.
I had very little expectation to tell the truth and it actually went very well. Very nice low key event.

The table and the finished trading cards.

Chewbacca As A Jumping Jack

And now for something completely different than my usual... a Chewbacca jumping jack!
Yep, that's right.
Teaching Art in Middle School, we did Halloween characters as jumping jacks with the 8th graders and they loved it. So I thought I'd try my hand at it too.

I'll have both the b&w version you see here and a watercolor painted version available as digital download for my patrons.
Color version coming soon. :)
