Star Wars Galactic Files 2 Sketch Card Artist Spotlight: Stephanie Swanger

Bespin refugee - August 03, 2013
Scheduled to be released Aug. 9th, Star Wars Galactic Files - Series 2 Trading Card Set Trading Card Set features chase cards such as autograph, medallions, and printing plate inserts, as well as sketch cards; and, one of the participating sketch card artists for this set is Stephanie Swanger. She has worked on Star Wars Galaxy 6 & 7, Star Wars Galactic Files 1 and 2, as well as Mars Attacks! for Topps, in addition to cards for Cryptozoic, Upper Deck, Viceroy, and several others.

"What Star Wars means to me - I was hooked as soon as I saw the films around the time when the Special Editions were released. There was just something so fantastic and magical that instantly caught my attention. It wasn't just a simple story about good vs. evil - it had true heart and a universe filled with fantastic characters. It was something I could easily lose myself in and relish in the simple joys of childhood. It's something that will be with me forever.

What is was like to work on the set - First and foremost, it was a dream come true. I was drawing ever since I was very little and with my love of Star Wars, there was no surprise that it was the subject of a lot of my doodles. To take that to the next level and to be able to do that on an official capacity is something truly special. When I'm working, I find myself taking a step back to realize that hey, I'm contributing to the Star Wars universe!

[My] Favorite character to draw - This is a no-brainer - Han Solo! He has been my favorite character for as long as I can remember and that easily translates over into my artwork. I quite often thought about what it would be like to do a whole set of just Han Solo in different poses...hmm..."

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

They just went on sale today, but, apparently, they'll only be available at hobby shops
