Star Wars Fan Days 4 by markmchaley Star Wars Fan Days 4 by markmchaley
If you attended Fan Days and got on my Sketch Card list, here are the cards. They're on their way to Mark Anderson at Beckett.com so he can mail them out. A BIG thanks to Mark for taking names at the show and sending these out.

I apologize (again) for not being able to be there and I did want to do something for the show and for the people that had hoped to talk with me.

So for those that got on the list, please enjoy. :)

A special note: I did these for FREE. They are MAJORLY upgraded from the free 30 second sketch that your VIP ticket covered. That was my choice and once they leave me, what the new owners do is their choice. My hope is that you got on my list so you could own and enjoy my art for your collection. If you got on my list solely to FLIP the card for $$ please consider donating the money to charity. I know times are hard...they are for me as well. I still give and sell art for several charities each year no matter what my situation is. So what I'm saying, is that these cards came from a good place, so please continue that feeling. If you do flip the card for personal profit I won't judge, insult, or think any less of you. I'm just asking that you think about doing good thing. That's all.
All my best,
Mark

They are so beautiful! I tried to win one of your Betty Page cards the other day, but too expensive for me, too bad. I would love to have something from you, as I collect sketch card, and I'll certainly no sell it if I have one from you.

Mr. Mchaley, thank you so very, very, very much. My 10 year old just received the Mace Windu card today!!! She could not be more thrilled!!!

See, a couple years ago at Fandays 2009, we received the VIP card set with our ticket, and the poor artists were so backed up that we couldn't get a single solitary sketch card drawn. Each artist asked us to leave our cards, they took our name and address, and said they'd mail it to us. Well sadly, I had a disappointed kiddo when she realized weeks later that none of her 5 sketch cards arrived back. I'm not bashing on any particular artist, just saying it was not a happy experience.

Same thing happened this year too, as I volunteered all day Sunday and I didn't get to give my kiddo the sketch cards until 3pm on Sunday when they were handed out to the Sunday volunteers... believe me, I'm not complaining. Thrilled to get them. But I know by then, at 3pm, it was way too late to have the artists sketch something out quick, by no fault of their own. But to a kid, as I rushed her around that vendor floor, she was so disappointed with us trying to find even one artist to draw on at least ONE of the sketch cards.

So image my surprise when today, an absolutely gorgeous sketch card came in the mail addressed to my kiddo. WOW!!! And Mace Windu is her favorite!!! This soooooo made her day today (it was going pretty rotten as she's being bullied at school). After she ripped open the package this afternoon and finally became coherent again after 5min of drooling at the card, she begged me to drive out to the local Cosco for a frame for this card to be housed smack dab in the middle of her bedroom's "Star Wars Wall of Honor" :-). Mr. McHaley, I want to send you a virtual hug and a huge "thank you". You just became my favorite artist. This was so cool of you to do this. Thank you, thank you. We hope we get to meet you one day to thank you in person. I wish you and yours all the very best.

Mr. McHaley, thank you so very, very much!!! You made my daughter's day today (she's 10).

Each artist asked us to leave our cards, they took our name and address, and said they'd mail it to us.

So image my surprise when today, this absolutely gorgeous Mace Windu sketch card came in the mail addressed to my kiddo. WOW!!! And Mace Windu is and has always been her favorite character!!! As soon as she ripped open the package after school, she made me drive right out to Cosco to get a frame for this card to put smack dab in the center of her, what she calls, her "Star Wars Wall of Honor" in her bedroom. This so made her day today and I want to send you a huge virtual hug and a big "thank you" to you sir. Your work is amazing, and this was so cool of you to do. You made a little girl's day turn out amazing (btw, she was costumed as "Boushh" at Fandays in Irving if you happen to look through the Official Pix pics of the event). Thank you!!! You just became my favorite artist. I hope to get the great pleasure of meeting you one day to thank you in person (and so does my kiddo). I wish you and yours the very best. :-)

Thanks, Rhi! The stock was worse than usual...I ruined the 1st card I tried and literally 'dry erased' the ink work on the 1st batch and had to start again with materials that would stick.
