Our friends over at R2-KT are celebrating the artists of the galaxy, shining a light on their work during these tough times which has seen conventions cancelled and postponed and their main revenue streams cut off as other matters take precedence. Every day through out June, R2-KT will focus on a talented artist of the galaxy, and today it’s the turn of Asia Ellington.
“The endless amount of creativity and wonder. It’s always blown my mind to see the amount of innovation and creativity that’s gone into every film in their sets, costumes, visual/practical effects, props, etc. For as long as I can remember Star Wars has been a great outlet of fun and escapism that not only teaches us to live to our full potential, but also that we can go after any goal we set our minds to no matter the odds, and examine how it reflects our own history and how to stand up for what’s right in the real world.”
Please feel free to check out more of Asia’s work on Instagram and Twitter @asiadraws, or asiaellington.com
While Asia is not currently selling any work she does occasional charity sketch commissions to help donate to many human rights causes. Links and resources for how to help others including (but not limited to) the NAACP, ACLU, Black Lives Matter, the Yemen Humanitarian and Hunger Crisis, Native American COVID-19 Relief, and Homeless Black Trans Women Fund, can also be found on her Instagram.
Asia’s motto : “Continue to stay strong, listen, and have hope.”
