We’re quickly approaching the one year anniversary of the day we lost beloved actress and icon, Carrie Fisher. Those of you that are familiar with my art and illustrations may remember the Princess Leia drawing I did several years ago:

Princess Leia Organa Art Nouveau

  As a result of her passing, sales of my print on Etsy went up and I wasn’t sure how to feel about that. It felt strange to profit from such sad news. Yet there were a lot of people who wanted a piece of art to commemorate Carrie Fisher’s passing. So this year I thought I’d point you towards other people’s illustrations of every geek’s favorite Princess. I’m so into these, I hope you enjoy them too!   ‘Our Blessed Rebel Queen, Carrie Fisher’ by Lindsay Van Ekelenburg is available here, on Lindsay’s Society6 shop.

“Our Blessed Rebel Queen and Lady of Alderaan, Carrie Fisher. An inspiration to us all, let her glowing radiance shine down upon you.”
Yes, indeed. Carrie and Gary forever! By the way, Gary has his own Instagram account where you can find all the French Bulldog cuteness you could ever need.

This is the beginning of a series of designs I’ll be doing in honor of the incomparable Carrie Fisher. <3 Any and all proceeds from these designs will go to a number of different charities supported by Carrie herself, including The Midnight Mission and the International Bipolar Foundation.
After being told by George Lucas that she wasn’t to wear a bra under the iconic white dress, Carrie asked why not? To hear her tell it in her book Wishful Drinking:
What happens is you go to space and you become weightless. So far so good, right? But then your body expands??? But your bra doesn’t—so you get strangled by your own bra. Now I think that this would make for a fantastic obit—so I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.
  ‘Princess. General.’ by Fabs Nocera is also available Society6.
