Sample by Juhana Lumme after George Lucas and Hergé 

I made two pages for the story, in which R2-D2 ja C-3PO (Thomson and Thompson) arrive on Tatooine in a life pod and go their separate ways. It wasn’t until this that I realized what a psychotic character C-3PO actually is.

Process

My aim was to create Star Wars as Hergé would have drawn it. To get the most authentic outcome I used Hergé’s original art, which I photoshopped.

For example here I’ve used art from The Black Island and The Crab with the Golden Claws. I’ve moved and removed characters, edited the background and added a speech bubble.

I created the Jawa sandcrawler out of a wooden cabinet from The Secret of the Unicorn to give it a little of Hergé’s touch.
