Star Wars Galactic Files 2 Sketch Card Artist Spotlight: Vanessa 'Banky' Farano
Bespin refugee - August 14, 2013

Now available (as of 8/9), Topps' Star Wars Galactic Files - Series 2 Trading Card Set features chase cards, such as autograph, medallions, and printing plate inserts, as well as sketch cards. One of the participating sketch card artists for this set is Vanessa 'Banky' Farano, who has worked on cards for Star Wars Galaxy 6 & 7, Galactic Files 1 & 2, and Mars Attacks for Topps, cards for the 501st Celebration VI Bash, as well as cards for numerous other sets.

"I grew up on the original trilogy of Star Wars, as a child in front of the tv engrossed in the movies. so before I could imagine anything else there was always Star Wars in my life. Other worlds of possibilities, space, battles, different creatures, the force, and love, there is nothing about the world to not enjoy. Star wars is Infinite possibilities for the imagination. And at a very early age Princess Leia was one of the first woman I could relate and look up to who stood on her own and fought for what she believed in, strong and beautiful. It baffles me to think there are people out there who have never seen Star Wars, I couldn't imagine my childhood without it and what that would of meant to who I might have been if it wasn't in my life. And now I am blessed to draw them for a living which as a child could never have imagined but feel very blessed the road my life has taken.

With Star Wars I am drawn to drawing emotional elements, fight scenes, the dark side of the force and monsters. So chances are of classic elements and moments in Star Wars making it drawn on to my Star Wars card sets. I love drawing strong female characters, Princess Leia, Padme, Aurora Sing, Ahsoka. I think the quick draw characters are yoda, chewy, r2d2, boba fett.
Though I usually love to do my more realistic comic style, my cutesy style has been quite popular amongst fans and it is neat seeing these classic characters turned into a quirky edgy graffiti baby version of themselves."

Topps' Star Wars Galactic Files - Series 2 Trading cards will be available at hobby shops on Friday, Aug. 9th.
