Shannon & Shane's assignment


Super designers Shannon Tindle & Shane Prigmore were doing a guest lecture at Cal Arts and they asked me if I would participate in the assignment. They asked the class to create Scrooge, Jacob Marley, and Tiny Tim from "A Christmas Carol." Here's my version. This would definately be the worst performance of the story ever! HA!HA!

Thanks ya'll! By the way the Probe Droid is the ghost of the one Han Solo shot. He, of course, couldn't actually talk like Marley, but would just utter his "omina..omina..omina..." robotic sounds. It was a challenge trying to put eyes on the Falcon so I just opted for stupidity and slapped them on the front. Hardy-Har-Har!
