This is going to be my first Celebration Event; I am planning on going Saturday or Sunday. With only the one day to spend there, I want to make the most of it, especially for my 6 year old who just loves SW. Chris or anyone else that might have advice on ways to do that, I would appreciate it.

The fan hall would be neat for him, and with the building of hoth he can take a piece home with him on Sun., you guys can build it together. And there is the Autograph hall and meet the actors who played some the beloved characters.Don't forget to go to the 501st booth and get badge for the hunt for the droids game. Also there is laser tag, plus alot more to do. I tried to put out the stuff that a kid would love to do. Hope this helps some.

My dumb question of the day:

I know that the deadline to get your tickets/badge mailed to you is July 11.

I already ordered of course, but do they mail them to everyone, or did you have to mark that you wanted them mailed on the order somewhere? I can't find anything on my receipt that tells me.

Shua, I believe they are mailing them out to everyone who orders before July 11. There's no option to pick them up at will call before that.

I ordered a program book when I got my badge, and I'm wondering if it's the same program that's just been shown (with the Martinez cover art)???

Star Wars Celebration V Countdown: Day 33

Today's Artist Spotlight features artist Doug Cowan. Find out more about Doug and his Boba Fett themed Celebration V Exclusive print below!

Doug Cowan is from South Hadley, Massachusetts. Having been born after Return of the Jedi, he can say that he has truly been a lifelong Star Wars fan. Doug's Star Wars artwork first appeared in Topps' 30th Anniversary series. Since then, his credits include Star Wars Insider, "New Visions" for both Topps' Galaxy IV and Galaxy V, as well as Topps' Clone Wars and Empire Strikes Back Widevision card sets. A graduate of Pratt Institute, his work has also been shown at the Salmagundi Club in NY and The Society of Illustrators.

He cites Joe Johnston, Ralph McQuarrie and Nilo Rodis-Jamero's work in The Art of Return of the Jedi as a substantial influence. More of his work can be seen at www.dougcowan.net.


"... The idea of a bounty hunter means someone who will never give up. Also, a bounty hunter has lots of experience. When you think of a bounty hunter you don't think of someone starting out in the business. That's why we made him look like he had been through hell." -Irvin Kershner

<center></center>

The image shows bounty hunter Boba Fett and his ship, Slave I , shortly before the events of The Empire Strikes Back. He's tracked a fugitive to the desolate Outer Rim - essentially the ends of the Earth - and like the bounty hunters of the Wild West, he is looking to bring them in "dead or alive.

Doug's print will be limited to just 250 pieces!

I was worried about that as well, but iirc you eventually get to a paypal page, so just make sure you check that the amount is just for the addition before approving the payment.
I went ahead and ordered our C5 Program and Shirts as an add-on today, but it altered out confirmation date for the tickets. I sure hope nothing ridiculous happens now like our tickets being for pick-up at the show instead of mailed or something...

I'm sure it'll be fine, but I sent an E-Mail anyway. Reed Exhibitions is awesome.

The problem is that I'm neurotic.

One month to go today!!


But my trip starts on the 7th!


Question: Is there only one official CV guide? As a VIP ticket holder, it's included in the price, so hoping it's the only official guide!


On another note, international ticket holders have to collect their tickets at the Convention Center itself. Hopefully everyone has the option of collecting theirs a few days before CV starts!

Today's Artist Spotlight features artist Tim Proctor. Read about Tim's career and check out his Celebration V Exclusive print celebrating the 30th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back below!

Bio from StarWars.com:

Tim Proctor has been an avid Star Wars fan since early childhood and is excited to be a part of the Star Wars Celebration V Art Show. He discovered his passion for art at the age of three. Tim earned his BFA from the Memphis College of Art and has since been working as a freelance illustrator and designer. Working primarily in ink, acrylic and marker, he combines the subjects of pop culture, science-fiction and fantasy. His work has appeared on many surfaces, both two and three dimensional – from canvas and illustration boards to t-shirts and sketch cards. Recent projects include Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season One Widevision, Star Wars Galaxy 5 and The Empire Strikes Back 30th Anniversary set.

<center>Title: "There Is No Try"
Edition Size: 250 prints
Print Size: 16" x 20" 100lb Cover Stock with aqueous coating
Price: $30</center>

We asked Tim to give us a detailed description about his first official Star Wars print and this is what he had to say:

“When creating this print for Celebration V I wanted to keep the concept simple and focus on one of my favorite characters from The Empire Strikes Back. For me, Yoda was the obvious choice. I also wanted to use a somewhat limited palette when it came down to color selection. When I think of Yoda, I think of the force. I wanted to capture an iconic moment that people remember from the film. To convey the force, Yoda's facial expression plays an important role in this piece along with the addition of the levitating rocks. The glow emanating from his hut contrasting with the background lighting and limited palette of the Dagobah backdrop helps sets the tone for the overall piece. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did creating this piece."

StarWars.com writes:

Ken is a crazy Canuck, who decided at age eleven to become a graphic novelist, even though the term itself had yet to be coined. He's written and illustrated Star Wars storybooks, comics, covers, and more for a quarter century, while also creating his own IP -- including the graphic novels Night and the Enemy (stories by Harlan Ellison), The Sacred & the Profane (with co-creator Dean Motter) and Tempus Fugitive (solo). He believes that specialization is for insects, and his favorite color is currently sanguine, as is his demeanor. Though they disagree about which is the best Star Wars episode, he is still happily married to author/illustrator Joan Thornborrow Steacy, and they have two very creative sons, Alex and Raymond.

I've seen anywhere from $30-$150. Most of the ones for CV should be in the $40-$50 range. I think the Vanderstelt is $100 and Dorman will be more.

Edit---I think that you meant prints in general. It really depends...(size, artist, paper, edition size, etc) Some ACME stuff is pretty expensive, upwards of $150.

For instance the Lee Kohse print. It's limited to 250. I have seen some of the prices for some of the prints listed about, but not all and not very much. So I was thought I would try to find out a little info, so as not to drop a kidney when I see the price. So far only 3 that I am looking to pick up.

Thanks!

Born September, 1975 (Toledo, OH USA)

Brian began his career while in college, studying graphic design. He became interested in the field of illustration and started an internship with a local art studio that was breaking into the comic books industry. It was here, that Brian learned about the airbrush as a commercial illustration tool and quickly caught on to painting with it. Soon Brian was teaching other artists how to manipulate the tool and create images that rival photographs.

Brian attended his first Comic Book convention with only two paintings and not knowing what to expect. Much to his surprise, the convention was more then just comic books, it was a gathering of sci-fi, fantasy, horror, film, music, video games, pin-ups, pop culture, licensed merchandise, etc… that would soon be taking Hollywood by storm. He was in complete awe of the opportunities and possibilities that were contained within the convention center walls. For several years to come, Brian toured the various conventions across then country and began establishing himself with fans, collectors, editors, art directors, writers and other artists. Brian's untouchable talent got him jobs such as cover art, interior art, storybook illustrations, posters, collector lithographs, trading cards, and advertising/ packaging art. Brian's first art book, The Art of Brian Rood , was published in 2003 and has since gone into a hardbound edition.
