Watercolor: Princess Leia by mikemaihack
Watercolor: Princess Leia
Been a while since I’ve had time for any watercolor sketching. Here’s a Princess Leia (and a couple of bumbling droids) I painted while my youngest took a nap yesterday. Also, cause I’m on a bit of a Star Wars kick. I mean, who isn’t right now?

Original available here:…
I will be at the Kids Love Comics section, table 3007, at Baltimore Comic-Con this weekend. I love this show! If I'm counting my years right (and it's totally conceivable that I'm not), this will be my 7th year exhibiting. Here's a map to help you find me.


I'll have both Cleo books on hand (although in limited supply because I'm, like, traveling), Batgirl & Supergirl prints, stickers...all sorts of stuff. I'll also be doing some watercolor commissions again. Now, because I've been doing these for a little while now, I've learned a few things which I, for the sake of no better place to do it at, will list here:
  • They are $30 for one character on comic backing board (that's 6.75 x 10.5 size).
  • I like comic backing board. It holds color well and sketches dry quick.
  • I prefer not to draw/paint on sketch covers. I know you guys love em, but I've yet to find one that holds watercolor well (plus there's no way to restart a drawing over if I royally screw it up). I'll do 'em, just, y'know, be aware of those things.
  • The above goes for watercoloring in sketchbooks too.
  • Only one commission per customer. Sorry, I used to do more in the past, but I felt bad having to turn people away due to lack of time.
  • I don't take pre-show commissions so find me early in the day. My list generally fills up pretty fast.

Blech. Rules. But they need to be pointed out. I guess being a parent has had that effect on me. Anyhow, looking forward to seeing a lot of familiar faces this weekend and hopefully some new ones!

Wow, what a great collection of comic book art! I love how you capture the light, adventurous, fun side of comics, which is so missing in many modern comics. In particular, I greatly appreciate how you bring out the theme of friendship, especially with my favorite super, Batgirl.

My only complaint is that I wanted to favorite far too many pictures!

Thank you for sharing your considerable talents, it is greatly appreciated.
