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!
“To me, she is royalty.” – Lor San Tekka (The Force Awakens)
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
When you can hide stolen Death Star plans, talk back to Grand Moff Tarkin, and win the heart of Han Solo, you’re kind of a big deal. So, StarWars.com is thrilled to announce that the sharp-shooting princess of a galaxy far, far away — Carrie Fisher — will return to Star Wars Celebration!
The legendary actress and author, who will reprise her role of Princess Leia in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, will appear on stage and sign autographs in the Official Pix Autograph Hall (learn more about Official Pix below). Fisher’s participation leads a slate of exciting new announcements for Star Wars Celebration, April 16-19 in Anaheim, California — including the attendance droids you’re definitely looking for.

YN regular Wes attended the Carrie Fisher Panel At Salt Lake Comic Con today and reports in with some news and images! Thanks Wes!
Carrie couldn’t say anything about episode 7 and it was a short panel but still fun to see. She talked a little about people flying drones over them while filming and how they had to wear multiple layers to hide costumes etc..
Check out a gallery of images Wes took below!
