I am an artist. I am not bragging or anything, I actually went to art college, and have spent the past 20-ish years in the field of design and advertising. In one of my art history classes back in college, I remember being told that Michelangelo once said: “Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.” I know what he meant. I felt exactly the same about the 5″x5″x9″ block of mozzarella cheese on my kitchen counter, just waiting for me to carve it for our first M4P.
I am of course no Michelangelo! But it was still pretty successful. As far as Star Wars fan art is concerned, it definitely turned out pretty cheesy…which of course was the whole point.
