“Hold onto your dreams”

Who can resist the little Stormtrooper who only wants to go outside and play? After over a year of various stages of lockdown, holding onto the dream of normalcy is more precious than ever.

This image, a gentle reminder that tomorrow will be a better day, is now available in two sizes: 8″ x 8″ and 10″ x 10″.  Don’t forget, hold onto your dreams, no matter what they may be!

“Shelly is amazing!  Besides being a highly technical photosmith, she has mastered the ability to evoke emotion and life from all of the little plastic characters I make!  She has provided heartbeats and soul to many a toy and she is a collaborative Juggernaut when it comes to sharing and developing great ideas.” – Guy Himber, CrazyBricks
