Longtime friend of the site, Joe Corroney, has created a beautiful masterpiece in honor of the late Carrie Fisher. Please see all the detail about the piece below, we don’t yet know if these will come up for sale to the public, but I sure hope so!

Here’s a first look at my in memoriam artwork of Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia that I created for Denver Comic Con this June 30th – July 2nd.
Carrie was originally scheduled to be a celebrity guest for the event before she passed last December. The promoters commissioned me to create this very special artwork in her honor for their hardworking and necessary volunteers and staff. Proceeds for Denver Comic Comic Con benefit “Pop Culture in the Classroom”, a Colorado-based nonprofit organization that provides free comic book based curriculum for children in grades 5-8.

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at the event next week in Denver. Feel free to stop by my booth in Artist Alley and say hi if you’re planning on attending. I hope everyone enjoys the new artwork. I miss you, Carrie <3
