    Oooo! "Cryptic" words about a mystery piece--it's gotta be for a book cover, comic cover or some other fabulous thing!! [face_dancing] Can't wait to hear what it's about!! :D

    And I wish I had some $$ to go bid on Chewie (he's one of my favs of those cards!! **lip quivers**)--hope you get some good returns on him, anyway! Take care--sounds like you're insanely busy these days--but that's actually a goog thing! ;)

    Yes. Frankly, I know only a little more than you do at this point...still, something's coming up. ;)

    Thanks! The auction was a total success. Thanks to anyone who stopped by or bid! And...yes, so busy I'm spinning. Good, but I need a day off!! ;)


    ~~

    The second of my auctions is hitting eBay tomorrow at 1pm PST and will run until September 4.
    This time OBI-WAN KENOBI!

    A long due update!

    I guess the spinning never stopped.

    Before I head off to Chicago next week I wanted to post a piece I did which will be in the next issue of the Star Wars Insider (#97). The release date is around October 24th.

    [image=http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u311/OMangueOTangue/image-3-9.jpg]

    ~~

    I'll also soon be selling my last two Topps 30th Anniversary cards in the upcoming weeks...I'll try to post if possible...sorry I missed posting the link to the Han Solo auction. At least the sale went well! :D

    I also wanted to show a piece I was asked to do for the cover of Chicagoland Entertainment Collectors Expo's program, the convention to be held October 5 & 6, 2007 in Chicago (Carol Stream, IL) at the Holiday Inn. I really had a good time with this piece as it combined real elements (Chicago skyline) with some fantasy (the dragon will be my promo card for the convention) a little futuristic twist and a beautiful false color moon (reference provided happily by NASA).
    [image=http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u311/OMangueOTangue/CECE_med_notext.jpg]

    ~~
    Believe it or not I've been able to make a few very brief/quick entries to Nerf-Herders-Anonymous, come on over and check them out...or just check the whole site out!

    ~~
    I'm coming to the last few cards for Strictly Ink's Hammer Horror series collectors cards, my next project will be SI's Harryhausen set! Once I get everything scanned and uploaded I'll drop by and post them here.

    OK..It's 4am and I must get some sleep.

    Thank you!

    Oh wow! I absolutely love the piece that's slated to appear in the Insider! It fully encompasses everything Star Wars is meant to be! Fantastic job on the rendering of the faces and the two starfighters just seem to pop right off the page! I'm truly in love with this piece! Excellent job! I may have to pick up the latest issue of Insider just to see this thing in print! ;)

    The program cover is also very imaginative! The range of color is just beautiful and you really prove you can do all sorts of subject matter with your outstanding rendering of the Chicago skyline. Excellent update all around, Leah, thanks for posting! =D=

    Thank you!!

    It's been a BUSY month and I'm seriously tired.

    I've been working on The Art of Harryhausen cards and am almost finished coloring them. I tried to pick a wide range of his work and focus on his work specifically and not the surrounding human characters (unless they were involved in the scene as well. I'm really, really enjoying this set and totally enjoyed the Hammer Films set too.

    The Heroes set which was scheduled to be released in September, was moved to a later date because of the approval process. It looks now as if the set will be released around December 12th...but don't quote me on that, it's always up for change.

    If you would like to take a closer look at some of the cards and other artwork please visit my DeviantArt page.

    ~~

    The last of my returned six cards from Topps Star Wars 30th Anniversary set is up for auction.

    C3P0! I really hate to see him go but as I said in posts elsewhere...Need vs. Want.

    Hi!

    Another update on other artwork going and gone! :D

    Here's how the Star Wars Insider artwork was presented...
    [image=http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u311/OMangueOTangue/image-5-2.jpg]


    Sketch card art...

    More from CECE:
    I mentioned previously about the cover artwork for CECE but I didn't show the two cards I did for the auction to raise money for the Treasure Chest Foundation, which aids younger cancer patients. A good friend of mine, Mark Dodson, helped with the cards by adding his signature and the pair of cards sold for $150!
    The signature was added at the convention, after I scanned them.

    [image=http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u311/OMangueOTangue/image-1-11.jpg]

    And...
    Here's part of the interview related to the convention (I scanned the page with my artwork) with Non-Sport Update magazine:
    [image=http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u311/OMangueOTangue/image-2-12.jpg]

    The interview brings together 4 women sketch card artists, Cynthia Cummens, Connie Persampieri, Rowena Pagarigan and myself. To read more you can order from NonSportUpdate.com

    ~~
    Heroes.
    Initially I was only going to do 56 cards for this great set, I really didn't have the time to do any more BUT, as it happens I am able to fit in 103 more sketches.
    Here are several samples of the finished sketches from my first 56:

    Hammer Horror.
    Strictly Ink is coming out with some great cards over the next few months and I'm only too pleased to have been a part of them. The 35:

    Harryhausen.
    I had more fun on this set than probably any other (SO FAR ;), more coming), it's because there are so many creatures! Again 35 for the set:

    Ok...it's well after Christmas but a lot has happened since then.

    All the extra Heroes cards I did (100) have been posted on my DeviantART pages...as well as a lot of other work. I did want to share the Indy Heritage sketch cards here though. :D

    AWESOME card collections, Leah!! =D==D=[face_love]

    Your talent and creativity never cease to leave me breathless! I ADORE all the Indy cards (...guess I'm in the same boat with our mod here! :p )--such great captures! And I howled over the one depicting a petroglyph of an Egyptian monarch (?) holding audience with 3PO and R2D2!! =D==D= Too great!!

    The LOTR cards are wonderful too (...a BIG fan of Aragorn and Legolas... **sigh** ;) )--but I really got a charge out of the Harryhausen ones! What a kick, seeing all those monsters again! =D=

    Terrific stuff--and it's WONDERFUL you're so busy! Success and all that! Heartiest congrats! :D

    HanSolo29 Thank you!! :D Yeah, Indy's great!! I had originally planned to do more but I knew I wouldn't be able to schedule so many in.

    NYCitygurl Thank you! I try! :D


    Mitth_FistoI really appreciate that. It's a pleasure to be able to get commissions for stuff ya love to draw! :D

    FalconFanApparently that one snuck through on approvals. I'm glad it did! It was always one of my fav tidbits in the film...next to R2D2's "head" being atop the pole that Marion and Indy are tied to towards the end of Raiders. ;) Thank you, FalconFan and you too!!!

    I'll try to post the lotrmII cards (my second wave) as soon as the approval comes. :D

    Thanks all!!
