I filled in for Bean, one of the co-hosts of the Jelly and Bean podcast, so if you want to hear me talk about Multiplex, Macs, Steve Ballmer, bad movie logic, and more with Jelly (a.k.a. Daniel Farrelly, the programmer of the Multiplex iOS app), click on over to the Jelly and Bean website and check this shit out!
Spoiler Warning: Jelly is from Australia, so he sounds funny!
I loved this. Thanks to @yusaku777 for sharing this with me on the Twitters.
I wonder how many people of my generation started drawing because of Star Wars? Myself, I started drawing by tracing E. H. Shepard’s Winnie the Pooh from the classic books. But I first drew a comic — of sorts — when I saw clips of Star Wars on a TV in a store as a little kid. I was probably 5 or 6? It must have been around the re-release before Empire Strikes Back came out.
Since I couldn’t just fire up the internet and stream the actual movie or rent a DVD like you little fuckers these days, I started drawing my own space opera along the lines of what I imagined Star Wars would be like. It had a hero wielding a laser swords against armies of stick figure baddies with eyeballs for heads, and weird two-dimensional creatures named We and Wo (pronounced Wah) that looked sort of like trilobytes, I guess?
