Hobonichi Star Wars Part 2


Star Wars robots had a lot of
'personality' in the original movie... 

I'm anticipating the new Han Solo movie, 
along with many Star Wars fans...
coming out soon!

...and, how about a slug-like Crime Lord
 for a classic villain?

I am guessing some poor elephant got
stuck wearing this Bantha costume, but it 
could have been a giant puppet too.
Anybody know the answer? Still,
pretty cool... would make an
amazing pet.

The Star Wars theme got upstaged for
the granddaughter's Dance Recital. 
She did a great job on all of her 
routines, and I love seeing all the 
costumes of the participants!

I'm joining up with T Tuesday blog hop,
better late than never, over at
Altered Book Lover's blog.  Join us!

Star Wars: May in my Hobonichi

Click on any image to enlarge

Hobonichi drawings this month are
inspired by Star Wars!  Some things
I've learned from the movies:
"Never underestimate the locals."

"Hey, maybe those WERE the
droids we were looking for..."

May the 4th has more than one connotation.
It's a fun play on words for "May the Force be
with you," but also the anniversary of the
Kent State shootings.

Road trip to Tennessee: visited the Loveless
Cafe with my son's family.  A 1 1/2 hour wait
to be seated! A long-standing cafe, been in
business since 1951. The southern biscuits
were 'melt-in-your-mouth' good!

We also visited a used bookstore, where I
bought a copy of Danny Gregory's book
"An Illustrated Life."  Wonderful drawings
from many artist's sketchbooks, and their
thoughts about their journals. I 
recommend it.

continuing the Star Wars
theme for the month...
wonder if I will run out of 
characters to draw?


and heroines.  I love Padme's formal
make-up. Reminds me of a Geisha.
And that elaborate hair...

My grandson is a fan of the bounty
hunter Boba Fett. Otherwise he would
not even be on my 'radar.'

Luke Skywalker wishing for adventure...

When we were driving home from Tennessee,
I spotted a house with about 25 pink flamingos
out front. It was so funny...and made me think
of a gift idea for my mom for Mother's Day.

I counted 5 beverage cups in my post today, 
so I am linking up for T Tuesday over at
Altered Book Lover's blog. Stop by for
adventures and a chat!

Bumper sticker seen on the road:
"Dead men tell no tales."
Does that mean "Don't mess with me," or--
the driver is a PIRATE?!
