This year at Celebration Anaheim sees a lot of talented artists, some of them for the first time. Here's your first chance to look at their art, decide what you like, and pre-order anything that you're interested in. This art does sell out, so it would be a shame if you got to the show to find that you couldn't get what you wanted. Also be sure to check each artist, as not all are in artist alley. Some have their own Booth, which is listed on the bio.

This is Stephen's 2nd Celebration, which is pretty good considering he's a grown man playing with toys. He's been doing these action figure diorama's for quite some while. We've even featured some on Rebelscum! All of Stephen's props and accessories were created from scratch inspired by the design of film props. His favorite number is 3.75.

Brandon is new to the Celebration Art Show, but has provided a knock-out poster featuring Luke. His work can be seen in numerous trading card sets including licensed properties from Star Wars, Marvel Comics, Major League Baseball, and the Ultimate Fighting Championship. "The image itself is a depiction of Luke gearing up for the first flight in his X-Wing. The scene is a busy Yavin hangar with crews getting ready for the attack on the Death Star. I wanted to try and catch a moment of eagerness and anticipation as Luke's dreams are coming to fruition." Mission accomplished Brandon!

Lee returns for his second Celebration, with a great "what if?" print featuring "Apprentice Leia." He has a great write-up on his website about the studies he performed to get this print perfected. He will be out on the convention floor at his own booth, so be sure to see what other goodies he has available.

Ken's an old hand at Celebrations, and appears to be a huge Darth Vader fan as this print is his third Vader themed artwork. He must be trying to get on the Dark Lord's good side (if he has one that is!) Pre-orders for Ken's prints are a must!

Erik Maell

Erik Maell
GIOCONDA AMIDALA

Fans of Erik's work, will recognize this print as "Phase II" of his "Gioconda Amidala" triptych (which he says he will complete, with an Episode III version.) Both prints feature Amidala in a pose reminiscent of Mona Lisa, and the art ties in with his upcoming book, MONA LISA REIMAGINED, which will be released on May 12th. The book is a collection of hundreds of pieces of art that have been inspired by Mona Lisa, and in addition to Star Wars art, it features lots of other pop culture characters.

If I'm not mistaken, Randy's been at every Celebration. His artwork has graced magazines, the Celebration Europe program cover, and myriad other places. Besides being able to pre-order his print, and stop by his booth, Randy will also be offering remarqu?s (those cool 'doodles') on your poster for pre-order as well!
