Artist and illustrator Chris Bishop has a knack for drawing pretty girls with robots, but it’s his whimsical Star Wars art that caught our eye recently.
StarWars.com chats with the artist about his latest illustrations of bounty hunters, Jedi and droids that make us smile.
What’s the story behind the Han Solo illustration?
My childhood friends and I all grew up to be artists. We started drawing Star Wars characters in our own styles for fun as a little diversion from work. I went with a shaggy, tattooed Han Solo holding the head of IG-88, my favorite robot bounty hunter. It never happened in the movie, but I imagine it might have sooner or later.
What are all of Han’s tattoos?
He has a bunch of tattoos but the most important ones are a heart with an “L” on it for Leia, an “MF” for the old Millennium Falcon, and two little crossed out Death Stars. I love putting tattoos on my drawings because it’s a fun way to add little symbols and details to a character.
