Darth Vader Wants You

Nick had asked for this a long while ago, but I finally got some time this weekend to play around with big inks and more of that nice heavy white paper Dad gave me.

This piece is, of course, based on James Montgomery Flagg's iconic "Uncle Sam" recruitment poster and was a lot of fun to ink out in a negative style for the highlights.

I've strayed from it a bit, but I think I am back to using my Staedtler lead holder (with blue lead) and a black Prismacolor marker.
