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.
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!
