All the favourites return!
Before I get started, HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone! (Australia being one of the first countries to bring it in!). Now back to the post-
I’m a MASSIVE Star Wars fan and I have been for as long as I can remember. Whilst I couldn’t make it to the midnight release, I definitely made sure to see it as soon as possible!
Without spoiling anything, I have to say it certainly lived up to the hype. I would be lying if I said didn’t tear up a little when the opening theme started playing and the Star Wars typography appeared.
To celebrate the great move and the franchise as a whole, here a is a little sketch of the famous smuggling ship: the Millennium Falcon.
Inktober/Drawlloween day 27
Okay, so I know inktober was now two months ago (it definitely doesn’t feel that far gone!) but I still have a few more prompts based on Halloween that I’ve been wanting to finish.
Tonight’s is based on the prompt “Witch”.
Also, after the debacle that was installing windows 10, I have finally fixed all of my tech woes. My old computer is now a brick, but I have just finished assembling my gaming rig and it is shiny and running beautifully. I’d forgotten how good it feels to be able to look at a screen and still have good posture!

Some of you may remember that in a previous I talked about how excited I was to attend Supanova again this year and included a sketch of some of the guests I was most excited to meet.

Well, I’m back from that holiday, and geeze, it was worth the hype! Supanova was fantastic and I was ecstatic to meet Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca – Star Wars), Zach Callison (Steven – Steven Universe) and Olivia Olson (Marceline – Adventure Time).
And if you remember that sketch I posted, well, I had it printed on some nice, medium gloss paper before I left for my holiday and had each of these three guests sign it. All of them were great to talk to while they signed and I can’t deny that I got a bit red when both Zach and Olivia complemented the piece.
While the day was filled with waiting in a LOT of lines (and getting to the front of one particularly long line – just to be told the guest would be leaving for a break and that I would have to re-line up an hour later), the day was undoubtedly worth it!
Meeting this small selection of guests wasn’t the only stand out event of the day; also being able to walk down artist alley and talk to other artists was a fantastic experience (one that left me with a lot less money but a lot more original art too).
Supanova has definitely left another positive mark on me this year, and I’m already planning holidays around attending again!
Even though I’m down in Brisbane for a holiday, I made sure that I found time to get some sketching in! (This also explains why the image quality is a biy lower because I’m away from a proper scanner)
Supanova was amazing too, and I managed to meet all three guests I was wanting to! (click here to see last week’s post where I explained what Supanova is and my mission for it this year) I tried not to fan too hard, but I had limited success with this… I’ll post an update of my trip/adventure next week with all the fantastic people I met and art I managed to pick up during my time away.
