The stories of so many Star Wars characters are glossed over in the movies and while some get mentioned in later books, most are simply forgotten. Enter “Plasticine Tatooine” a book created by artist Elliott Quince that lets characters like Ponda Baba (and his testicle chin) have their moments in the suns!
Thousands of illustrators have depicted the cast of Star Wars over the years so in a sense what I’ve done here is nothing new, however, it tends to be the more famous characters that most people choose to draw; the likes of Darth Vader, Chewie, C3P0, Luke, Leia, Yoda, and Boba Fett.
What I’ve decided to do, to make this project different, is to select a bunch of the more random cast members and imagine how bitter they must have been at not making it big, how badly they were treated on set or how cruelly their lives have panned out since the movies were released.
Oh, and just to make sure the project really was unique, I decided to make all of the characters out of plasticine!
