Upcoming Events with new promo postcards!

I recently prepared new promo postcards for Loo Harvest that I'll be giving out at two upcoming events: Star Wars Day Toronto on Friday, May 4th at the Toronto Underground Cinema and Toronto Comic Arts Festival on May 5-6th at the Toronto Reference Library. Come find me and say, "Hi!". Thanks to Guerilla Printing for printing these out!

And here's a better image of the promo art:

R.I.P. Ralph McQuarrie, 1929-2012

Ralph McQuarrie was a true illusionist in cinema history. His hand painted matte pieces were grand and believable in the Star Wars films and still hold up to today's standards of CGI. His vision of a used, gritty, lived-in look in the Star Wars galaxy is one of the reasons that attracted me to Star Wars than any other science fiction. Thank you, Ralph for imagining a fantastical galaxy I can always dive into when I need an escape from the 9-5 work life!
