This is a piece I threw together to get me ready for the upcoming Star Wars Fan Days Convention in Irving, TX. I REALLY liked how it turned out. I made this with sharpie, ink, watercolor, colored ink wash, and colored sharpie for details. My one complaint on it is this, it has a bit of a crease in the top due to the fact that I had to save the paper by adding a backer to the art. A crease happened and I was unable to get it out. But other than that...

I wrote a quick blog entry about this character on my website. Click the [link] to check it out!

He's a creepy dude! The lighting in the throne room in the film Return of the Jedi, was especially creepy for me when I was a kid. Some of his shots still gives me the creeps!

Thank you! Ian McDiarmid is going to be at the Fan Days Convention in October. I was really excited about that until I saw how much he is charging for an autograph and picture. It's a pre-sale ticket of $125.00. I just don't have that kind of money...

Figures! You could see him at the Fan Days convention in Dallas in October. It'll cost you a lot though.
