CCBC new release forthcoming: Dank Farrik!!

The Creature Cantina Brewing Company is thrilled to announce we've begun brewing the second release of our award-winning, globally-acclaimed line of empty beer cans. For this second project, we're going (co)Mando! Image

I've wanted to do a second one of these for a while, but I've been struggling for inspiration. I have one idea in my head that I'm holding onto, but I kinda didn't want to do Cantina aliens back-to-back. I really wanted to tap into one of the more popular characters... Fett, Vader, Grogu... someone like that. But unlike my Droids customs where I'm always depicting a scene, these cans are more about a bold image. It's a different process, and nothing would pop into my head.

I was getting frustrated, Dank Farrik!

And there it was. Image

As it just so happens, Din Djarin's favorite profane utterance is also often used to describe particularly pungent IPAs. Especially IPAs that remind folks of the smell of marijuana. I've tried a few of them over the years, and they're not my thing, but I figure they still could make for a good can design. After all, I'm not asking anyone to drink the stuff... just appreciate the label.

With the holiday weekend coming up, who knows... I could have my next beer can ready to sell next week. Stay tuned!

It took a while longer than I'd hoped to put this together, but I'm happy to finally present my Best In Swag winners for Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2022!

I picked up a lot of swag at Celebration... Image

And that's not nearly all of it! I found ...

Welcome back from Anaheim! Hope you had a blast. I did. But I feel a bit left out. I didn't have the opportunity to share the most popular post-Celebration photo on social media... Image

Turns out we had ourselves a super-spreader event! And boy did it spread. ...

I am back home from nine days in California, and mostly recovered. But I haven't had a chance to even begin producing content for our Celebration coverage yet...

We hope you enjoyed our live coverage of the high-end collectibles panel, and that you'll check back next week for mine and Danno's stories!

I've begun to organize all the stuff I need to bring along with me to Celebration. Image

It's actually not quite as much as I feared I'd need to mule. As president of PSWCS I gotta get a whole lot of stuff out there, but thankfully I got some volunteers from the club to help. Still, I have all the booth volunteer shirts, the booth signage, and the first day's giveaways. On top of that I have two personal swag patches - both part of multi-patch sets. Come to think of it, I designed nearly everything in this pile! Only the two Fill Echo Base coins we're giving away were designed by someone else.

A lot of work has gone into this. And we're now a week away from set-up. This is when the fun begins!

With Celebration next week, don't expect any update here until June. See you in Anaheim!

I'm thrilled to present to the world's own Celebration Anaheim-exclusive swag patch set!! Image

Inspired by events that were super timely when I drew and ordered them, this set features Greedo and Walrusman engaged in some knee-slapping (or rather face-slapping) hijinks! To get this set, simply track down me and Darth Danno. You guys all know what I look like, so here's a photo of Danno to help you identify him.

So I hope to see you in Anaheim. In the meantime, KEEP MY SITE'S NAME OUT OF YOUR %&$#ING MOUTH!!!

Celebration reveals: Wax Packs complete set!

Presenting the full set of Wax Pack patches! Image

And that's all of them. We didn't do a sponsor-exclusive or chase patch, because if I didn't have the same number of each color my OCD would go nuts.

Here's a few more of the pencil sketches I did to produce the designs: Image Image Image

Now 15 patches is a tough set to chase down! So to help you out, I put together this handy-dandy checklist, which each of the sponsors will have to give away. Inspired by... aw heck, I don't have to tell you what this was inspired by. Image
