Cats in Space!

A recent birthday card for my arty coworking pal and fellow Star Wars (and feline!) fan, Erin A. Ellis.  Check out her beautifully rendered naturalistic animals featured in an array of amusing scenarios.

Forgive the word balloon flow here; going top left to low middle is not quite intuitive for the seasoned (or even brand new, perhaps) comics reader.  The dialogue emerged when I realized I had a bunch of empty spaces and kind of a wonky composition.  Filling the gaps with balloons seemed right, and provided a goofy tie-in with the Birthday Jedi.  I had a lot of fun drawing cat instead of human faces, and was particularly excited about this version of Han Solo.  If George Lucas really is trying to destroy Star Wars, this could be one of his stops along the way to oblivion.
