I'm taking my son to a themed birthday party tomorrow. The birthday boy is very creative and can sit quietly drawing, absorbed in his play, for long stretches of time. So I decided to make him some stamps to go along with his favourite theme. What I planned to be a short stint of time has turned out to be most of the afternoon, after realising the characters I had wanted to carve were really difficult to draw (like Chewi's hair - lots of swearing going on there!). My son reminded me that C-3PO was the party boy's favourite, but aside from that, all the more suitable ones for my carving skills were from the dark side.
I apologise to any die hard fans I may have offended with my depictions. Two "moderate" Star Wars fans in this household gave a nod for my stormtrooper but looks of concern for the other 3. I'm hoping the birthday boy might be a little more forgiving.
