Item: Sketch Card (Red Senate Gown)
Artist: Kimberly Dunaway
Set: Star Wars Masterwork
As seen in Star Wars Episode I — The Phantom Menace, when the Queen address the Republic Senate regarding the invasion of Naboo, she wears the red gown depicted above.
Kimberly Dunaway is based in New Mexico. I first became aware of her work at ShowCon in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. I learned that she had done some cards for the Rebel Legion Artist Series for Star Wars Celebration VI. While I liked her work, she had no Star Wars items, or at least none of Padmé. Well, she finally made several Padmé sketches for the Star Wars Masterwork cards from Topps and I have acquired nine of them including three artist returns.
I won this card on eBay on May 31, 2015, from James Valenti.
