Indeed, one of my Artist Proof cards shows the Millennium Falcon itself, as it is chased through the ruins on Jakku. This card is available only through my website store, and the other – showing the explosion on Jakku as Rey and Finn desperately try to escape – is available on Ebay, ending today the 4th of March.

As we gently approach Spring, I also have a commissioned painting to show. Recreating scenes and memories is extremely difficult because, to be honest, one can never recapture the feelings one had “way back then”. However, one can attempt to catch some of the triggers that release those true emotions and images, bring back the memories once again. Painting landscapes is a joy for me, as is painting horses. I’d love to know what you think of it!

Also completed is another Lord of the Rings Bilbo – see below. Once again, because all my cards for Cryptozoic’s 5 Armies set were lost by UPS (except for the 3 repainted cards sent afterwards by Fedex) I thought maybe to paint some 5 Armies cards on my own, as I have time to. If you have any interest in any, you are humbly invited to check back as more are done.

I’m also caught up on some Disney commissions, the second of two from Fantasia, and two from The Black Cauldron. Another painting (base art) for an upcoming project is complete, and I can’t wait to show that! Something a bit different. My little travel sketchbook is making an appearance again, now that the weather will soon be warming up and I can sketch without freezing my fingers off – it’s simply frigid at the moment here in Quebec… Hovering at minus 18 degrees celsius most mornings since the past week (can’t complain, it has been unusually warm this winter, overall), but fairer weather is due soon enough.

That’s it for this week, thank you immensely for reading! In the future, plans are in the works for a couple of articles here about art in general, my sketching plans for June’s ultra-short trip to Europe, and continued sketch card projects – a couple of new ones are already underway. Please, I’d love to hear from you! Don’t be shy, post comments here or contact me through email.

Merci mille fois! 😀
