THE PERFECT PICTURE:
1979 artist Dave Dorman has been a part of the Star Wars
community. The work he has done for the past thirty years can
be awe-inspiring and jaw-dropping if you are not familiar with his
work. I have seen a lot of good artwork in my years of Star Wars
collecting, and I can tell you first hand they don't come much
better than Dave Dorman. Whether it's Dewback Patrol, Incident
on the Jundland Wastes or any of the other exclusive prints he's
done for past Star Wars Celebrations, the art of Dave Dorman will
captivate and ignite you love for the Star Wars Saga like no other.
There were eight members of the local Midwest Garrison & Rebel
Legion that would come out for costumed support for the event.
Rebels and Imperials working hand-in-hand towards a common goal! We
got to entertain the kids in line while Dave took the time to speak
with many aspiring artists about technique, materials and any other
questions they could deliver. We even got a surprise guest as
Cynthia Cummings stopped by to chat with Dave and his family. Even
though the event was just a few hours, that's all you need to work
up a sweat in a suit of armor! We put our few hours in and
parted ways to go have lunch and hang out at a local restaurant. In
fact, we were honored the Rebels chose to join us for some
refreshment! Events like this are a lot of fun because you get
to relax a little more and you don't wear yourself down like you do
at a major convention or show. Until our next ride, United We Find!
