HOTH-Y Holidays!

Do you like Star Wars?
Do you like tauntauns?
Do you like the holidays?
Do you need cards?

Then look no further.

When I was a 4 or 5 years old, I remember my father and I playing with a tauntaun toy on the kitchen table, making those strange sheep noises they make. Empire Strikes Back blew my mind. I hyperventilated at the sight of a giant stack of AT-ATs boxes at Toys-R-Us. I've always wanted to do a tauntaun illustration. I started doodling one day and got this image of one catching a snowflake on it's tongue in my head. I know people share my affinity for tauntauns so I figured people might like this as a holiday card.

Limited quantity

10 cards for $20
plus shipping handling.
Will ship next day.

Go to my Etsy account to order, if you'd like.

Have a fantastic Holiday season!

Printed on Hoth.

Ballet competition weirdness reaches new heights with Darren Aronosky's Black Swan starring Natalie Portman and Milas Kunis. Here's a interesting review I found online about the movie. I hope it''s as good as he says. Oh, if you haven't heard, Aronosky's next movie is the Wolverine sequel simply titled The Wolverine. It's set in Japan, hopefully with ninjas (The Hand?) front and center. Can't wait!

Japanese snow monkey drinking hot tea

Japanese Snow Monkey Drinking Hot Tea by Patrick-McQuade 11x17-print (Proceeds to Japanese RED CROSS)

Couldn't get this image out of my head, so I had to paint it! I feel much better now.
