Katie

Click here to see Katie’s update!

So today I heard about a girl my daughters’ age who was made fun of for carrying a Star Wars backpack and thermos. Since my daughter is a huge Star Wars fan, I really felt for the poor girl. Her mom had posted a photo of her in the original article, so I thought it’d be fun to draw Katie as a Jedi.

Katie the Jedi

Sorry for the photo, my scanner is still packed up in storage.
