May the Force Compel You!

Hi there. Do you like Star Wars? Are you ready to Super Size? I've got the means to put it all together for you. Let's do a combo! Here's some trading cards that are bound to get the young kids buying tickets and cheeseburgers! Consume!!! Consume!!!

I enjoyed drawing all the characters that threw my young childhood head first into the world of science fiction. What a treat! Enjoy.

PS - This post is equal to One Point! Have two!

It's nice that the character French Fries got it's own card.

I freakin tried to collect all the BK starwars figures. Missed the a third of the second round. I felt I did my nerdle side an injustice...I thought I had forgotten about the pain and anguish. And through your art I can relieve it. ;) Great stuff man. Love comin by your blog. you sir are inspirational!

JESSE - Yeah, that character got overlooked quite a bit but finally got the cred he deserved on the last movie. Frylock rules!

GHETTOFAB - I did so much Star Wars art but I loved every minute of it. Luckily, they gave me two sets of all the toys!

frenchfries is my favourite character ever.

UrbanBarbarian said...

Thanks Travis! He's got personality and I think that's why people gravitate towards him. I wanna see a mini-series featuring him soon!

I see a hidden face in the moon. It looks like it's frowning. You can see it best in the frenchfries pic. Did you ever draw for Highlights magazine? ;)

UrbanBarbarian said...

Oh, I put that there for a reason alright! It's my personal statement about... huh..? Wow! I never noticed that before! That's why you're such a talented cuss!

Nope, I haven't worked for Highlights Magazine. Have you? I've always kinda wanted to though. Looks like the illustration work would be fun.

I reject this crass commercialization of Star Wars! I'm glad that George Lucas isn't alive to see this!

Rapp said...

The movies are over, man! Just move on with your life.

But could you draw me as a Jedi first?

UrbanBarbarian said...

Do you really think they're over? ;)

What color is your light saber, Dave?

Rapp said...

Isn't that the name of a best-selling self-help book, "What Color is Your Light Saber"? If not, it should be.
I'm from the Mace Windu School of the Purple Saber, myself.

Alina Chau said...

V COOOOL!! THese are great trading cards!! Are they going to be in color too?

UrbanBarbarian said...

ALINA - Thanks! Sadly, like most of the work I've done for BK, it's already been scrapped. For every one design that gets approved - 20 others have gone the way of the round file!

RAPP - Mace chose wisely.

Antonio Santamaria said...
