Artist Spotlight: Cat Staggs

Cat Staggs produced one of my favorite Star Wars prints of all time.  She’s known outside of Star Wars for her work in comics: she did work for the Smallville: Season 11 comic, she’s done work for Star Trek and Orphan Black.  In Star Wars, she’s known for her propaganda series of prints, sketch cards for Topps, and illustrations for online stories.  I proudly have several pieces of hers hanging on my wall, and when I met her in person she was exceedingly nice.  I gathered most of these images from Cat’s DeviantArt, but she has a nice viewing gallery up on her site.  Let’s get to looking, yes?

Tidbits

-If you want to buy Cat’s art, look here.  She also has a Facebook page.

-My favorite print, by the way, is “They Were Expendable.”  I finally got it last year around Black Friday, when she put some up for sale in her store.  Beyond that, I have “Encounter at Echo Base” and “A Careless Word, a Collected Bounty.”  I was at Celebration IV for “Spirit of ’77,” I didn’t buy one at the time, but I since wish I did.  It’s really grown on me.  I like all of those propaganda prints, but of the ones I don’t have, it’s “To Hoth and Back” I wish I had the most.

-Sorry about any watermarks on the images.  I tried when I could to find versions without them, but for a few the only other ones I could find had much lower resolution.
