Dapper Chewy

Check out this amazing painting by Robert Mackenzie.

A victorian-style portrait of a wookie with a monacle? I mean, come on...that's just made of win. I liked Robert's painting so much that I had to make my own version to frame and put on my wall.


And I would be remiss if I didn't tell you to check out Robert's awesome blog. Lots more super fine work of an inspiring nature over there!

Nice work, Greg! The original was done by friend and fellow coworker Bob Mackenzie. Here's his original post: http://robert-mackenzie.blogspot.com/2007/01/blue-sky-challenge.html

Thanks Jake! Glad I can now credit the right guy for his great piece. And on a side note, huge fan of your work. That Jack-o-lantern painting you did a while back was the influence for the look of this one...don't tell me you didn't notice!

Jake said...

Haha, I didn't even notice. But now that you mention it, it's a nice homage. You've got some great work on here. I'm glad I found your blog.

Very thoughtful and almost disapproving looking. Perfect for the period look of the portrait.
Be Well.

It's "monOcle" by the way, not monAcle. ;)

Hey Greg,
Love the work. I understand the intrigue of them being not available. But i would like to know if at any point you would be selling prints of any of the three.

Would like to give 1 or 2 as a gift to my brother (an avid star wars fan) for christmas 2010. Let me know if they will be available by Mid December 2010. Thank you.
