Today is Star Wars Day, so I drew some characters that nobody likes!  Meaning there isn’t much art out there for ‘em.  Two are from the spine-meltingly bad Star Wars Holiday Special (a musical!) - Trader Saun Dann on the left, and Ackmena on the right.  Played by Art Carney and Bea Arthur.  The middle characters, Noa and his pet/friend Teek, come from the ABC Sunday Night movie Ewoks: The Battle for Endor, which my dad recorded on VHS for me and which I watched endlessly as a six-year old.  Noa was played by Wilford Brimley, who didn’t even bother to take his glasses off.
Though these guys were AARPers by the time they played their roles, I figured I’d draw ‘em up prequel-era as young, adventure-leaning main characters.  Because if there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s taking a surefire hit franchise that everyone loves, picking weird supporting characters from it for whom no one has an ounce of interest or affection, and drawing them in a way that renders them unrecognizable from the original.
