826CHI, the non-profit writing and tutoring center. Each postcard features text written by one of the students who's participated in programs at 826CHI, which are then illustrated by various artists. When I was in elementary school I had the opportunity to attend a few writing workshops (including one where the guest speaker was author/artist Tomie dePaola. It had a big impact on me, and is part of why I write and draw books now. You'll be able to buy the postcards to support 826CHI soon, but if you're really ambitious (and in Chicago) you can pick up tickets to the upcoming People Eating & Giving fundraiser, or PEG.

It's the first time I've scripted comics for someone else to draw, and they all made amazing work. Here's my initial character designs.
Also, Darth Vader and son has started to find its way into stores, and if you don't see it at your local shop you can always order it...

*Relatively speaking - on the grand scale of the entire universe, the movie will essentially be playing inside of your head tomorrow
