Star Wars: The Empire Sketches Back

Last weekend, I went to the Windy City Comicon. I saw some old friends and met some new ones. It was a good show. There were creators, pros, retailers and publishers. Watch for it next year.
Of course, I had to get some new Star Wars sketches. These are the first empire/villain ones.

Who Is White Knife?

In the open plains of the Mid-West, an evil shaman named Wolf-With-Fire terrorized the Cheyenne tribes, stealing their children and turning them into demons of his own. A warrior, whose name was derived from his pale skin and the fact that his mother bled to death during childbirth, convinced his tribe to fight back. His name was White Knife.
At the Mountain That Breathes Evil, White Knife and the Cheyenne warriors fought the demons and other creatures that protected the shaman. High within the mountain, they came upon the shaman's lair where he lay dying. With the last of his power, Wolf-With-Fire tried to curse White Knife with everlasting life, so that he would live to see all that he knew and loved die. But White Knife found the strength to strike the shaman down with his own tomahawk. Wolf-With-Fire's power exploded, causing White Knife to fall to this death. This, however, was not the end of White Knife.

Star Wars Sketchbook: The Saga Continues

This past weekend, I was a guest at FallCon in Minnesota. This is always a great show. I can't thank Matt and Becky enough for their hospitality and good company.
Besides reconnecting with other creators and guests, I used this opportunity to get more Star Wars sketches.
