    Tsuneo Sanda was at CE in 2007. Love his art (especially the Fetts) but what he brought was out of my price range. It was nice to see him in person though! And Dave Dorman was also there - he signed my SW: Art of Dave Dorman book and drew a small Fett figure with his autograph!

    Oh, yeah. Sanda has so many fantastic pieces! Love those "Dream maker" pieces!
    Have to admit I had to google Dave Dorman, but I immediately reconsigned him and his art. He's awesome too! That was pretty cool of him!

    I know people are complaining about the lack of updates on guest, I'm personally more annoyed about the lack of information on the art show. I try to pick up a print as my main Celebration memorabilia, but I am picky and I want to have time to choose. I only have two spots left on my walls though, and one of them is booked for what I'm expecting will be my Celebration Orlando print. The information on the art show only states that the deadline for submitting art proposals was on January 18!

    Yeah I agree! There's not much info about anything! (I'm still super excited though!)
    As for the artists there are a few that as said they are gonna be there, but the artwork it self is secret...

    I definitely want to get a poster of the official art (and hopefully it'll be on a shirt or something too!)

    I am going to have to limit myself on how many I can buy - some great stuff there.

    Yeah, that's some nice art! Loving this Rebels one (though I'd prefer one with Ahsoka and the villains as well):

    However, I have nowhere to put them, so I may have to limit myself to the main Celebration poster and one more.

    I remember he had a piece I really liked in Essen... Untill I saw the price tag. Haha, yeah it was a really great piece of art, but not for the "budget" I had at the time!

    Yeah - I'm looking forward to seeing what he brings but I doubt it will be in my price range. I'm not that crazy about his pic that's been shown.

    I adore Karen Hallion's piece - but £45 is steep. Wish they would announce the cost of Mark Hamill/Carrie Fisher signing so I would know what budget I have to actually work with

    There are some gorgeous pieces there, but as I said I'm picky and none of them will fit my theme of Padmé/Leia prints or will fit the colour of my living room walls.

    Karen Hallion's is the one that comes closest, since it goes stylishly with her Padmé/Leia print that I bought in Anaheim, but the colours are wrong and Rey is the focus. In Anaheim she had some smaller prints in the same style though, so I hope she's bringing them.

    This one actually gave me goosebumps when I saw it

    I guess I will have to wait until Orlando and hope that Erik Maell will bring his third Mona Lisa/Padmé print, he said he was going to make a third when I bought my second one in Anaheim.

    And just for reference this is what my print wall looks like, one empty spot is saved for that third Mona Lisa/Padmé print, so I just have one more spot to fill, that's why I'm really picky about it. I have possibly one spot more on another wall, but then I must really love it. It also needs to be a standing format.

    Considering that I've felt that a lot of previous Celebrations have been too focused on Vader and the Empire, I really like the Rey focus this year, if I had loved TFA I would of course have been even happier.

    Some really nice pieces but over $100 for a print? Not sure I can stomach that, need to save money for the Mark Hamill photo op (wish I'd caught him at the Aladdin premiere on Wednesday but we had to be inside to be seated before he came down the purple carpet)! I might stick with a poster/print of the official show art and maybe Londonium Calling just because it looks like fun piece and is much more in my price range.
