    That's a bit steep for me. I'm not really an art collector, I just wanted something nice for my wall.

    I've got 5-6 prints on my wish list, but will most likely have to narrow it down to 3-4 to stay within budget.

    Well sadly for me Im going to have to limit my art perches because not only do you have to buy the print ,Ill have to go buy frames for each one when I get home. So instead of 10 im gonna stick with 4-5.

    Are they going to post the final images of some of the "not final image/artowrk" examples? Dorman's in particular. Given that it's less than a week away now, I'd assume they'd have to be finished by now.

    Special Guest
    Star Wars artist, Shea Standefer will be at my table Fri-Sun, helping out and working on her sketch cards for Topps' upcoming Clone Wars Season 2: Rise Of The Bounty Hunters! ...hmmm maybe I'll add something to her cards.
    With Shea's vast knowledge of the Expanded Universe (and my lack there of) our table will be precision balanced with the Force!
    Shea also wears a mean Slave Leia outfit...we decided that she will don the outfit for this show. I'll wear it for my next Toys 'R' Us appearance...kids need more nightmares.

    Hey guys this is going to be my first celebration and i'm really interested in Mchaley's and others artwork. I was wondering how high the demand is for all the artwork. Unfortunately i'm only arriving on friday, so are these going to be sold out by thursday or will I still have a chance to snag a few on Friday? Also if someone could point out where these will be sold on the convention center map I would much appericiate it.

    I think you'll be fine, finding what you want on Friday. I think we're located across from the autograph hall (or under them, if you're looking at the map). Where ever ACME is set up is close to the Art Show area.

    One register! Resulting in a line several hours long- ACME botched this one- I guess LFL never saw a road runner cartoon ;). At least I still managed to get the prints I wanted.

    I WAS SO ANGRY Thursday, I finaly found artist allay at 10:30 and waiting till 3:30 to get my prints and then Some of the artist left for the day at 1 and 2 pm. WTF ! Acme came through the line claiming that LFL told them they could not have any more then one register . What ever people. I WASTED my hole day and I want my $45 back for the Thursday pass.

    Despite all that, I managed to still get all the prints I planned on, and was able to get all the Hodge miniposters-woohoo!

    Still, I did feel like I lost most of the day because of the Acme debacle.

    I spent four hours waiting in the line as well. Wasn't real happy about it. And I still had to come back Friday to pick up the print I had purchased since the artist had left by the time I got out of said line.

    I've been to all five Celebrations, I have to say the artwork here was the best and strongest yet. I personally felt CIII had the best artwork before this, I am not sure why, I wasn't quite as impressed with what I bought at CIV. I mean, it was great, it always is, but I don't remember quite as many absolute must-have pieces as at CIII, where I felt like I basically bought everything and a large portion of it is hanging on my wall! The CV work was truly astounding.

    Chris Trevas is a rockstar, his piece was amazing, Craig Howell as well (wow), Lee Kohse's is a favorite of mine as well, great piece, and so many others. I think I bought about 10 prints, I can't remember, but there were so many others I didn't buy that I wanted to, it's just right now, it's not only a money thing it's more like a framing and space issue.

    I probably have at least 100 pieces of art NOT up on my walls, most not framed, that I have in storage, so I don't really need any more sometimes I just can't resist. One day I want a much larger place, then I will frame it all and store most of it, and rotate pieces in and out every 3 months or so. There is just so much good work out there.

    Acme Archives also has a ridiculous amount of work that I wish I could buy, I'm a huge art collector of Star Wars stuff, but it's too difficult to get it all.

    Thanks to all of the artists for their great work -- the Art Show is always a highlight for me, one of my favorite parts of any Celebration, it always gets me excited.

    Yeah, despite their major clusterfracking of the check-out line, ACME did have some awesome stuff at their booth. The one "shadowy Solo and Chewy" piece and the "Vaders helmet on the floor by his feet" in particular grabbed my eye (as well as many floor-goers), as well as the various "opponents in a mask's reflection" pieces. That metal Falcon spec plate was damn cool too.

    I got most of my slips on Thursday and Friday but didn't pay for anything until Saturday and Sunday (I told the artist's this would happen when I saw the line). They had two cashiers on Sunday, plus a really short line.:p

    Also, lots of original pieces, mostly non Star Wars stuff!

    I just want to take a moment to thank all of you who picked up he CV print(still can't believe we sold out!), came by for sketches, bid on the TK helmet project! Over $50,000 raised! (Tuskin Trooper raised an unexpected $1200 for Make A Wish!!! Thank you so much!), attended the Her Universe Fashion Show and supported the HU booth, or just stopped by to say hello! CV was fantastic and we had a great time! I think it may be my favorite one yet!

    I am looking forward to the next one already!

    As for now..i have work to get back to and what looks like a cold to shake that hit me yesterday as we were getting ready to leave Orlando.

    So off to soup, work and prepping for Dragon Con....whew

    Thanks again everyone!!

    Just some notes about my C5 print that will be available at StarWarsShop.com :
    Around 100 were destroyed at the airport because of weight issue. They were in the first batch numbered up to 143 and I don't know which ones were destroyed and which of those numbers sold...which means I can't re-number the shredded prints. So numbers 144-250 are available, which means only (roughly) 150 prints exist, (of which the remaining out of that 150 will be available for pre-order at SWS for a short time).
    Other existing prints include 10 Lucasfilm proofs and 20 Artist's Proofs.

    Pertaining to questions I have received about purchasing the original: Lucasfilm has exorcised their 1st right to purchase and the piece is not available.
