NOT QUITE a BOYTOON…b-u-u-u-t…


Okay, so you all know by now that I am a total GEEK! I am actually very proud of this fact! And like my buddy Milton Worley (those of you who recently checked out my website will know what I am talking about!) I embrace this fact completely!

I am a HUGE Star Wars fan! And though I DO NOT think Mr. Lucas is God… not by a long-shot… I am eternally grateful he has created such a fantastic world of wonderfully imaginative and inspiring characters.

In the last 3 Star Wars films (the prequels) he introduced a veritable hoard of new Jedi characters. One of my very favorites is Shaak Ti. Many a moon ago (okay, last year! LOL!) I whipped up this image of my favorite Jedi damsel, and I thought I might post it here and share it with all of you!

I am a sucker for a beautiful, strong female character. I guess that is pretty evident given the female characters in my comics, like Jeanne Darque and Felicia. My only regret with Shaak Ti is that she is grossly under-featured in the SW prequels. At least she gets more screen time in the Clone Wars cartoons, and is featured regularly in the Dark Horse comics.

Shaak Ti’s look inspired me to create the Tolarians…those sexy blue Boytoon aliens that like to play Basketball against Camili-Cat once in a while! They are my homage to Shaak Ti, and my way of showing my appreciation for the Star Wars universe.

You know, at some point, I really MUST draw a sexy Greedo and a sexy Kit Fisto… GOD I love the color green, don’t I?!?!? HA! HA! HA! To be continued!

  1. Behind a lot of strong men, is a strong woman. Patrick recognises this and it shows in his art another very appealing quality I see in Patrick’s work and something that makes him more of a unviversal artist. His portrait of Captain Janeway from Star Trek Voyager (check out his website) is a perfect example of this.

  2. Good morning Patrick,

    I am also a very big Star Wars fan and currently I am working on a website for Shaak Ti, so we got the same fetish (again) I guess =D

    I saw that picture over at Your website and I truly fell in love with it! The colors and the expression on her face are spot on!

    All the best, You Star Wars nerd! =D

  3. Hiya Manny and Phrog!

    Guys, I am so pleased you liked my Shaak Ti rendition!

    Manny, I really agree with you! Strong female characters are ESSENTIAL! The boys need some balance from time to time, and I often find that the female characters bring a very positive, zen kind of energy to the comics which makes for some great dynamics.

    You are a sweetheart to mention my BELOVED Captain Janeway! And I am so pleased you liked the image I did of her as well! You are a jewel, you know that? :o)

    And Phrog, my friend! A SHAAK TI website?!?!? Are you TRYING TO GIVE ME A HEART ATTACK!?!?!? That is AWESOME!!!!!!! You HAVE to let me know when it is ready! I LOVE SHAAK TI and I think a site dedicated to her is… well it’s… Oh dear…my head just imploded! HA! HA! HA!

    Phrog, you kick ass! Keep me posted, okay! ;) And thanks for the lovely compliments! If you need my image for your site, you just let me know!

    Lotsa Luv!
    Patrick XOXO

  4. Hi Again Phrog…

    No worries. Ms. Orli Shoshan is gorgeous and I thought it would have been wonderful for her to get the chance to have more screen time as Shaak Ti! It will be great to get to learn more about this lovely woman through your site!

    Don’t worry! I am still excited! LOL!!!

    Hugz + Kisses

  5. Hello Patrick,

    You’re right: Orli is just such a beautiful babe that I had to do something for her. Shaak Ti is, in my opinion, one of the best designed Jedi ever. I would have loved to see her go bonkers with Luminara Undul or Aayla Secura… Now, I sounded like a pervert =D

    Anyways, thanks for Your posting!

  6. Not a pervert, Phrog…just someone who can appreciate beauty! That is NEVER a bad thing! :o)

    Cheers my friend– Patrick XOXOX
