Tale as Old As A Galaxy Far, Far Away: Beast Chewie & Belle Leia!

My friend Amy found her prince at D23 last weekend:

A Chewie Beast! (Or Beastly Chewie?) 
And that C3PO Lumiere is brilliant. Brilliant, I say! 
(See what I did there?)

Later in the day, he was joined by Leia Belle:
via Parks and Cons on Instagram

So, so good.

They reminded me of some art I bought at a con a few months back - something I haven't had a chance to post yet:


And also kind of wrong, with poor frozen Han in the back window. Ha!

Kimberly Nedrow is the artist, but from what I can tell she has zero web presence. Zilch. Nada. (That's a low-quality scan of my own print up there.) It's uncanny; her business card just has an e-mail address and a phone number on it. A phone number. Like something out of the dark ages.


Anyhoo, Kimberly, if by some chance you see this, I think I speak for us all when I say: please open an online store! I have a feeling more people are going to want this one.

Oh, and if you guys want more D23 cosplay pics, check out Amy's roundup over on Nerdist!

UPDATE: Rejoice, my friends, because that adorable print is now available on Etsy! Thanks to Kimberly for letting me know, and you guys be sure to follow her on Facebook for more.


  1. I almost didn't click on on this because I thought it was going to be Isaiah Stephen's work (which showed up elsewhere on my RSS feed). But then I would have missed the cuteness. I second the call for Kimberly to have a web presence.

  2. Every time you post art, I am very, very sad that I have no money. I really need to start setting something aside for an "art budget."

  4. That Chewbacca is CRA-ZY! WOW!

  5. Really cute.
    BTW, have you heard about a new game show on GSN? It's called Steampunk'd and features makers who work with Steampunk design. First episode was designing a kitchen.

  6. Oh my, Kimberly if you are reading this, please have an online presence in the future, I would very much like to GIVE YOU MY MONEY!

    I found her on Facebook

  8. James Hance did a Leia/Chewbacca/Beast print, but no ball outfit on Chewie...

  9. Hello, I'm Kimberly Nedrow. I'm so glad you like the artwork! That was my second convention ever and am glad to say I was received well. I have recently set up a Facebook for me as an official artist under my brand name Alex Worden. Here I post my new work and the conventions I plan on attending in the future. Please feel free to visit my page and I hope to see you again in the future.
