James Hance, whom I just decided is one of the best artists on the planet, has recently released the above set of images (courtesy of BoingBoing) depicting Han Solo as Christopher Robin, Chewbacca as Pooh, R2D2 as Piglet, and an AT-AT as Eeyore.
In my opinion, two of the greatest human creations to come out the past 100 years are Star Wars and Winnie-the-Pooh. To see both of them combined so flawlessly and artistically makes me wish I had thought of doing it first. But, then again, I could never draw as well as Mr. James Hance. Man, I could look at these illustrations all day long.
The main reason, is that the illustrations are in the wonderful, classic style of E.H. Shepard and the original A.A. Milne volumes of Winnie-the-Pooh.
He will be selling the first volume of Wookiee the Chew here on his site soon. I'm definitely getting one. What a brilliant, well-executed idea. After I receive my copy, I'll post my thoughts...
