While Star Wars purists may bristle at seeing their favorite burly
Wookiee given children's cartoon treatment, they'll soon come around to
these endearing portraits of Chewbacca rendered in the style of
Winnie-the-Pooh artist E. H. Shepard. Drawn by artist James Hance
, whose book of drawings Winnie the Chew
comes out on September 1st, the images also seem to recall the vivid
nostalgia of Calvin and Hobbes
cartoonist Bill Watterson. Here's a
sample below, but be sure to check out Hance's website here.
