Age 14/15? | 1982/83? Cor…. nice drawing in this one! I must have been secretly doing new pages as an older teenager—without telling my cool heavy metal school pals, for fear of ridicule.

Art Notes

Surely I was at least 14 or 15 when I did this? It’s very hard to say. When I was working from visual references I could do pretty good stuff even when I was 12 or 13.

Do any of you ever think that Vader’s meditation chamber looks a bit like a giant Halloween pumpkin?

In my version I don’t seem to had Vader bother himself to go to a special room to speak with the Emperor’s hologram. Or bow down in obeisance. Nah, he just stays where he is, like a teenage in bed on his mobile phone, and waits for the Emperor to come to him.

That’s the way to stick it to the boss!
