I did the original sketch back in November and did several rounds of cleanup, but never really liked the Sarlacc Pit part. I did several rounds of drawing and redrawing, but it never came out right. Then I ran into some freelance work and left this to the side.
I picked it up again this week and redid the line work and redrew the Sarlacc Pit, and suddenly it was something I liked enough to finish.
I've been a big fan of boba since I first drank it's tasty goodness. At one point there were two boba places within a mile of my work, so I decided I needed to visit one of them every day.
Turns out boba is filled with sugar and starch. Probably something I should have known, but I was blinded by it's sweet tasty allure.
Years later I still drink boba - but only on occasion - probably one every couple of months? But who cares about my boba drinking habits? Stop prying into my personal business!
Anyway - Ever since I connected the dots between boba the drink and Boba the Fett, I've wanted to do a version for my Heebeejeebees series of illustrations. And once I figured out Boba Fat - and how boba makes you fat, it was a match made in heaven...if heavy handed.
