It’s finally the time of year when the coldest, darkest days are saved by the joy of the holidays. This year we continue our eleven-year tradition of the R2-KT Christmas patches benefiting Toys-for-Tots with two new designs by artists who have never done KT projects before!
Carol of the Droids : Patch #15 in the series by Gina Canady
What do you get when three droids join in song? One of them beeps, one of them cracks wise, and one has a flat monotone voice but knows how to care for a Force-sensitive child. Well if it’s sung with heart, I’m sure the music sounds great. We asked Gina if she could show us how KT and her friends would celebrate Christmas – I think having K2S0 and IG-88 as your friends is pretty cool. And having the Child with you is even better!
Droids under the Mistletoe : Patch #16 in the series by Spencer Brinkerhoff
I personally asked Spencer if he could create an original R2-KT design for us after I saw how amazing his R2-D2 cartoons looked during Star Wars Artist Month. So much expression from a droid! And since I’ve always wanted to do an R2-KT & R2-D2 under the mistletoe for Christmas, I knew I could trust him to make them appear to have a real connection. And wow did he! I love the kissy-holoprojectors and the retro 8-bit style heart – priceless!
It is so exciting to welcome Gina and Spencer to the family of KT artists – and I’m so proud to showcase their work!
