Link: Samurai-Style Jabba the Hutt Drawing by Steve Bialik

April 23, 2010

Cartoonist Steve Bialik has done a great series of images that use a sort of pseudo-Japanese style to depict a variety of Star Wars Characters. This is his version of Jabba and Leia, but you should definitely take a look at his site to see how he interprets many of the other main characters. Click the image for a larger version.

I’m hoping he’ll figure out a way to offer these as prints.

    Nice. I like the image of Jabba’s Tattoo on the top left. (What’s the significance of the tattoo by the way?)

    Well, it’s supposed to represent his clan. It was designed by John Coppinger, who had this to say about its significance:

    “One afternoon, I drew a tattoo on Jabba, a basic anchor design. But if you search Google today for anything about Jabba’s tattoo you will get yards of theories about its significance. It took me about 10 minutes. It shows how Star Wars is self-generating in that way.”
