Leia and Jabba by Chris Henderson

A few days ago I came to the realization that 1/3 of the drafts in my queue were Star Wars sketch cards, so I am trying to post one every third post in an attempt to draw down that number. Today is the third post since then, so it's Star Wars time.

This is a Personal Sketch Card of Princess Leia and Jabba the Hutt done by artist Chris Henderson. Like most of the cards I buy, it came to me through eBay. Going back through my blog posts, another sketch by Chris Henderson may have been my first Leia sketch card. I am always happy to add another sketch to my Leia collection, and maybe someday I will count them up and show them off all in one post. Today is not that day, though.

Chris Henderson is currently fighting a battle against cancer, which is a pretty scary thing. He's posted about it on Facebook a little bit. There is also a GoFundMe page set up for donations to help offset some of his expenses. He also has some inventory on eBay that includes comics, sketches, and trading cards.

This evening slipped by really fast for some reason, so I can't do a full travelogue here. We got out of class early, so I stopped at one of the local card shops (I purchased a discounted box of Star Wars cards that was kind of a dud), spent a couple of hours at the Air Force Museum, and picked up a few things at Wal-Mart (including a Gypsy Queen blaster that yielded a hit). Now I've got to get into bed so that I can wake up and make it to class tomorrow.


  1. I really enjoy his artwork. Picked up some stuff on his eBay store to help support him. Hopefully he wins this battle.

    1. I hope so. I know too many people affected by cancer. Most of my grandparents have had cancer or even been killed by it, so I feel like my odds of facing it at some point are pretty high.
