Cornfield Meet

Things collide here.

Jim Solo, Captain of the Millennium Awesome.

Scott D.M. Simmons is a talented artist – check out his contributions to the Topps Widevision series of The Clone Wars sketch cards – and a super nice guy who’s clearly having fun with his work.

So when he started taking commissions for holiday gifts, I was struck with a lightning bolt of inspiration and shot him an email asking about commissioning a Star Wars sketch with a personal twist as a present for my friend Jim.

Or perhaps we should now call him Jim Solo:

See, Boba WOULDN'T let the Wookiee win, and this is what he got.

Chewbacca and the best backpack full of Life Day ornaments ever.

Not only is that a good likeness of Jim (right downto the ILM baseball cap he often sports), but I love Scott’s idea to have Chewie lugging around the busted-up Boba Fett armor.

Thanks, Scott – and Happy Life Day, Jim!
