Padawan Katie by Jackademus Padawan Katie by Jackademus
I was having a look at the Star Wars blog today and I read the story about the little girl who's being bullied for being a Star Wars fan:

[link]

Utterly disgusted, I was inspired to create this piece of fan art of this heroic little lady in hopes that it'll somehow get to her, and hopefully to the little oiks who are bullying her too.

Bullying REALLY gets me mad!

The article made me sad: of all the things to be bullied for, why Star Wars? :(

This image is a wonderful representation of persistence and pride. Love it!

Cool. Very cool. From an artistic standpoint, I like this. However, the description makes me love this. Star Wars is a perfectly good series, and if someone loves it then by golly they should be allowed to love it. I love the series myself, though... no wait, I am a bit of a fanboy, if an oddly flexible one. Huh.

Well done sir and thank you for expressing your feelings and art on the subject. Bullying is ridiculous and gotten out of control when something as awesome as Star Wars is being used as a gender bashing platform. Thanks again for that the article was well written and got me to thinking about how Great this Pic made that girl feel if she saw it. Good job.

bullying sucks be it your parents, friends or anything
zero tolerance is what there should be

as to bagging someone for liking star wars HOW DARE THEY

wait til i report this to Lord Vader and the Cylons - soon see whos been teasing who - hummm maybe i will tell the Daleks and the Cybermen and Major Kusanagi i am sure they would all like a piece of the fools that have made this young girl so sad...

hope you send her a copy as someone who suffers from depression due to my own abuse (physical and mental) as a kid to this day (mothers suck), all i can say is DA keeps me sane and on some days gives me a reason when its really bad to stick around another day - so i would encourage you to send it to her as the effect it might have could be out of all proportion to what you might think it would be.

(if you can get it to her i mean or haven't done so already)

we have a major issue here with bullying a few months ago a kid was almost killed, the thing that makes it all the more tragic was his mother and brother were both killed in the recent floods earlier this year (she passed him up to a rescue helo and her and the other boy were swept away and drowned).
When asked why they did it by the police (they chased him down and beat him with everything from fists to bits of tree branches that they found nearby) they said they did because he was more famous then them and had been on TV so much they were sick of his face (insanity !!).
His dad has now sold the family farm and is moving out of the state that's how bad it got.

facbook is also been abused a kid died in a murder suicide so his 'friends' posted on his fb page rude sexual based comments and again it got so bad not to mention painful for his family that the police cyber crime unit was called in and a 12 yr old and a 10 yr old were arrested for it.

like i said insanity...

I just read the article, and felt sooo bad about what happened, even if I wasn't the victim or the bully.
It's so nice of you to make such a good picture and have the character look just like that little girl. Did you send it to her?

Bullies are cowards, regardless of how old they are and the internet has given bullies an outlet I'm afraid. I'm familiar with this story and this is an awesome work, I hope she likes it!

I read that story, it was so sad, as a female star wars fan was rather insulted by those boys. I hope Katie gets this picture, it is adorable and she seems to be such a sweet girl. Great Job! I'm sure she will love it!
