    Sep 9, 2008, 7:24 PM - HAPPY DEWBACK SURPRISE! #1

    Thanks to Mirax and Obi-Dan, I got a super super AWESOMETASTIC early birthday present today... a painting by Obi-Dan of my very favorite Star Wars picture! While I love Boba Fett, THIS image is what I always remember from my childhood when I think of Star Wars! Thanks to Dan for taking a classic pic and making it his own by adding new detail and going with a very cool color pallet! Most of all, thanks to Mirax for getting this for me!

    Thanks, everybody.

    Happy Birthday, Art. I'm glad you like the painting.

    I'm also glad it got there safely - I had kind of a weird feeling about some of those guys down at the Fedex place.

    Happy Birthday! And thank you to Dan. I contacted him on the 2nd of August and I was not expecting him to be able to do it in time but he did it and I was truly amazed how quickly he did. It is big 20x24 and it is absolutely beautiful. The detailing is amazing. Thank you again Dan!
