"Are you pilot A34?"
"Oh no. That's my aunt."

Haha. I like it when Star Wars things seem more realistic. This is like early 20th century propaganda fliers. Though, it's more detailed if they used their printing machines back then. We'll go with 60's for this. :D

Yeah.. =/ I'm totally pissed off at myselffor not making more time at the SDCC to go looking aroundand tryin to at least meet my Idols..
But y'know, great artists like him stay alive in other artists minds.. probably more vividly since we creative types tend to see and imagine the world with such intensity.

here's to looking forward to your next inspiring piece ! :w00t: !
