    OT: Happy Life Day! Presenting my Wookiee family painting

    Happy Life Day!
    In honor of the 35th anniversary of the airing of the Holiday Special, I present:

    acrylic on canvas
    (detail) original size measures 20”x20”

    I don’t always paint on velvet!

    Commissioned by the awesome Skye Paine, it is a parody of Weezer’s 1994 “blue” album cover photo.
    Careful viewers will notice that Chewie’s son, Lumpy, is holding a vintage Hammerhead action figure, while Chewie’s father, Itchy, is holding a carved wooden X-wing fighter!

    It should be noted that the Hammerhead was chosen for a reason. the original bass player in Weezer was admitted into the band when he answered "Hammerhead" to the question, "Who is your favorite Star Wars character" ?

    This is fantastic! Nice work Bruce. I always thought that Weezer cover was a winner; so typically understated for the band.

    Nice to see something positive actually come out of that SW holiday special...
