May the 4th Be With You!

As you may know, today is what has come to be known as "Star Wars Day". Just a bit of fun and this year it is just another step as we inch closer to the release of the new film that many of us are eagerly awaiting. I know I am! Not gonna start a debate of the merit, or lack thereof, of the prequels tho.

So it seemed fitting that I should sit down and right this blog entry and share a bit of Star Wars art that I have recently completed. I shied away from doing any such pictures for a long time as there was just so much already out there and that I was doing a lot of work for a certain candy company that wanted to update their own Star Wars themed characters.

The picture for today is of Obi-Wan Kenobi. He's long been my favorite character of the saga as I feel that he is the lynchpin in the Darth Vader story. He warns Qui-Gon Gin about training the boy and then takes up the mantle himself which only leads to disaster and the only retribution he can find is to watch over Luke until he his ready to be trained to defeat his wayward apprentice.

Enjoy!
