Chandra Free - Princess Leia

2011.11.05 Wild Pig Comic Con, Somerset, NJ
Princess Leia and Salacious

Chandra Free is the artist and author of The God Machine graphic novel from Archaia. Chandra is also the reative director at BLAM! Ventures, was an artist on Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock comic, Archaia and Sullengrey by Ape Entertainment and contributed two digital panels to the illustrated novel Conspiracy of the Planet of the Apes...

Chandra is intensely interested in the incorporation of psychology into her art, focusing on the unconscious and human aspects of her characters. I find her art to be exceptional. ..

The God Machine is a graphic novel about lost love, monsters and crazy gods. It's the story of Guy Salvatore, who after his girlfriend's death, has difficulty making sense of his world. Excellent story, fantastic art.

Whilte looking through some of my first day covers, Chandra was immediately taken by the Princess Leia stamp.  Princess Leia and R2D2 were featured on one of the USPS Star Wars stamps issued in 2007.
