I really like checking out Joe Quinones’ blog on a regular basis. He’s always posting interesting bits on the creation of images you find in your comic books. He did some work at the Emerald City Comic Con, and it makes our Art Appreciation Moment of the Day.


Senator Padme Amidala. Gouache, watercolor, pen & ink on watercolor board, 2011

The above depiction of everyone’s favorite Star Wars character, portrayed by Natalie Portman, is a left over from this year’s Emerald City Comic Con. The fellow who had commissioned it was very patient, allowing me to take the piece, which I’d started in Seattle, home with me to finish up. I finally got around to doing just that. John, I hope you like it!
