Yes, Chewbacca. The client has invited the legendary Wookie warrior to his dinner party! If you missed it, the client (my son Jake) wants a portrait of himself with his favorite celebrities, and it is a fun group of movie and sports legends, including Charles Barkley, Christopher Walken, and John Gruden, and another surprise or two. The brave yet lovable Chewie rounds out the group.
When researching Chewie for this project I learned a few things about the Star Wars character I didn't realize, like he was married! How did I miss that? And I may have shaved a couple of inches off his height to fit on the portrait. According to Google, he's 7'6". That's a whole foot taller than Charles Barkley. Seems impossible but it must be accurate. 😉
Thanks for checking out my blog! Check back soon for updates and maybe even more interesting movie trivia.
It seems an appropriate week to share my rough sketch of The Client. He, his brother Jordan, and I have birthdays all within one week. In fact, many of our family members have birthdays in July. We love it but it puts a strain on the rest of the family. 😁 I think it is interesting that having birthdays in the same month seems to be common among other families. I wonder what causes that. To me, it makes it especially fun to celebrate and make memories together.
Have a wonderful week and I will post more updates on the latest project soon!
With Joy, Becky
I am excited to start a new celebrity portrait! I've started working on the initial sketch. The client wants his portrait with a few favorites, starting with the one and only, you guessed it, Sir Charles Barkley. This is going to be another fun one; lots of fun characters in this group. Especially the client, who happens to be my son Jake. I will be referring to my son as "The Client" on this project just because. 😄
Have a great weekend and keep an eye open for updates!
Based in Birmingham, AL, I love creating portraits in charcoal and pastels. Join me on my creative journey, inspired by the people, places, and pets I've met along the way!
