Sketch Cards for Baby Leah by JoeHoganArt Sketch Cards for Baby Leah by JoeHoganArt
Hey, guys!

So these are 9 of the 18 cards I did for a very important art auction. For those of you unfamiliar with Baby Leah, she's a tyke that's been dealt a pretty rough hand, but has been a tough little cookie through it. In addition, there's been a HUGE outpouring all over the world to help Leah's family get through these tough times. To quote Lesley Farquhar's Flickr:

"We call her "Princess Leah". She suffers from a mitochondrial disease that has never been seen before, it took over 8 months to diagnose. She suffers from cataracts, seizures, has difficulty breathing, and spends much of her time sleeping. And yet, Princess Leah captured the hearts of Star Wars fans around the world, who are helping with her struggle to find a cure, and help her to live."

Anyway, I did these 18 sketch cards to hopefully raise a solid amount of green for her. If you want to know more about her and her fight, visit her blog:

For anyone interested in the auction, feel free to contact me, and I'll let you know what details I have!

And just in case you were wondering who any of them were:

Echo, Commander Fox, Boss
Commander Jet, Captain Rex, Commander Gree
501st Trooper, Commander Bly, Senate Shock Trooper

No, Baby Leah is a little addition to the 501st family, who, unfortunately, lost her battle with the disease. These cards were done a while back as part of a charity auction to help raise money for her. Hope you are doing well with your own battle!

Dude, hat's off, these Troops look BADASS. Love the smooth gradient backgrounds :) You should definitely use it more often in your works!

I started experimenting more with them this set, so I most likely will use them more frequently now!

No problem. You said that these are 9 of 18. Are you going to / did you make any others?
Reply
:iconjoehoganart:
JoeHoganArt Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2012
Yeah, I finished all 18, these were my favorite. I probably won't post the other 9, they aren't as detailed haha Or at least, I don't think they're as cool looking as a set.

Well you should post the others anyway. These are great so the others can't be too bad.

I did! I don't think the fella collecting signatures knew who I was, but I was with the Hughes the Force crew so he asked me to sign hahaha. Now I feel like I earned the right to sign them! =)

And thanks! We gotta take care of our own!
