For those of you who are attending Celebration Anaheim, I’m having a panel about 2D pre production stuff. I will talk about all kinds of proof cards and Cromalins, not only Star wars era stuff like in the book but include all lines, even Ewoks ;^) Stop by and say hi after the panel is done. You’ll even get one of the Star Tots me and Jeff Correll have designed. Win win!
