I was starting a new sketchbook.
I was about to put a sticker on the front when my son suggested I make the sketchbook look like The Death Star instead.
Who am I to argue with a 6 year old?
I know... the resemblance is uncanny.
Unfortunately, most of this sketchbook was taken up by a sooper triple OMG-Darth Vader-Is-Luke's-Father secret book project I've been doing for Hyperion.
And it's huuuuuuuuge.
Like 270 pages huge.
So most of my sketching was working out the pages for that.
And I can't show you any of it.
But there's still some of the usual stuff lurking within.
Like evil potted plants:
My wolf cub added the two on the bottom here-- awesome:
A Private (Moby) Dick:
And here are a couple page headers. I try to always do a doodle for the date of the page I'm doing:
And here's a page of doodles I did whilst listening to legendary storyboard overlord Sherm Cohen's weekly class here at Fish Hooks.
Here's a picture FISH HOOKS creator Noah Z. Jones did of a horse pooping on my head.
So like every other Death Star before it...
This one is finished.
Started December 13, 2010
Finished April 20th, 2011
But what's this?
After buying a couple new sketchbooks
my son absconded with one and built...
A NEW DEATH STAR!
Admiral Ackbar must be pooping calamari.
