May the Fourth be with you
Posted on 08 May 2012
I've been painting furiously lately, and distracted enough to miss Star Wars Day on May 4th. When I say Star Wars, I mean "Star Wars", "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi". I heard rumors of terribly written, horrifically acted prequel movies that apparently came out some years back, but those are just rumors, I hope.
I saw this sculpture by Dimitri Kalivotis and loved how it pays homage to the lived-in feel of the original Star Wars movies. There are photos of Dimitri's process and more photos of the finished piece here.
