"When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." -- C.S. Lewis

The Lewis quote could be applied to Star Wars in general, but I thought it appropriate for today's post. Genndy Tartakovsky's Clone Wars cartoon is one of my favorite things Star Wars. I have a few illustrations planned based on the style of that show.

I was going to title this post "R.I.P. EU" and do a little write up on what was formally known as the Expanded Universe, but I just didn't have the time. I'll have more Expanded Universe (now known as "Legends") characters in this series, so maybe I'll at least link to some articles on the topic in the future.
Something a little different this week. Last year I was planning a painting series of Star Wars palette knife paintings. I only finished two and started this one before getting busy with other things. I had my oils out for a commission I'm working on and decided to finish this one. And there you go.
The title for this post was a lot more relevant and original when I was going to post it last year. I couldn't think of anything else, so I decided to just stick with it.
If you want to check out those other paintings, my Star Wars Wednesday posts so far, as well as other Star Wars posts from the past, check out my Star Wars Archive.
