Before I get firebombs thrown into my house for that comment, let me restate: I actually love Star Wars, I love it so much sometimes that it hurts.
That’s why I’ve been so crushed by the 3 prequel movies.
So, so dissapointing. And everytime I thought Lucas was going to redeem himself, they just got worse and worse. But I don’t blame Lucas as much as I do our failing copyright system, which creates incentives to make lousy art–but that’s for another time.
Suffice it to say, because of my dissatisfaction with the prequels I sometimes ponder how they could have been better.
These two sketches are a result of some of that pondering. I’m sure I’ll post more sometime.
