Although I have yet to read the comic, I’m pretty sure the story has nothing to do with him riding around on a My Little Pony, but I drew this image for my friend Reagan (age 4 and a half) to color as she’s a big fan of both properties.

To celebrate Star Wars Day I figured I’d share this color pencil drawing I did in my grief art therapy group at Hospice of Dayton.
The idea was to bring a photo of yourself and your loved one to recreate as a drawing. As I was unable to find the photo of Doogie and I that I was looking for, I just decided to draw us as Han and Chewy.
When I was a kid Dengar was one of my favorite Star Wars toys. He looked like a mental patient with his bandaged head and what appeared to be an air conditioner strapped to his back… but something about him really appealed to me.
After reading this short story he seems much more interesting; he’s got quite a backstory featuring Han Solo, Boba Fett, Jabba the Hutt and one of Jabba’s dancing girls, Manaroo.
It was a fun read with some depth added to a character I’d always found intriguing… even if the ending was kinda cheesy.
Think I’ll read the one about IG-88 next.
The Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo (or SPACE) is coming up on April 21st and 22nd in Columbus, Ohio and Brian John Mitchell has once again put together an anthology of comics by some of the exhibitors. This year is a milestone though as it is the first year there will be a print verison instead of only the usual digital version! Exciting indeed!
And speaking of exciting… I’m super excited because in said anthology is the first collaborative comic by yours truly and my lovely ladyfriend Kathleen Coyle! That’s right, she wrote a four page autobiographical story which I then drew then handed it back to her to color
… BY HAND!
The 98 page full color SPACE Anthology 2012 is available as a free pdf download (and shortly on iPad through the Cloud 9 Comix app) and the tangible version will be available for $20 at SPACE and on Amazon.
You can visit Back Porch Comics to check it out (and find out more about the show) or click on the “Kathleen’s Patronus Memory” icon above all this yapping for a short preview.
See you at SPACE!
