Here we are with a new Star Wars art project…
Inktober has drawn to an end and wow, what a month it has been. A productive month indeed. I now have a whole new bunch of sketches to add to the ever-growing collection of Star Wars Art and it’s time to leave the Galaxy and head back home to the UK. It’s been fascinating to spend a month exploring Jawa life and culture, capturing them with ink drawings.
I have tried each year over the past 3 or 4 years to meet the Inktober challenge head-on and plough through it, but for one reason or another, I’ve never seen it through, something always comes up and gets in the way. This year, however, I made sure I got my planning and preparation done in advance and being prepared definitely helped.
It’s been great to get stuck into the medium too, creating such a large body of work using only ink (and gel pens) has given me the perfect opportunity to fall in love with the medium and get a better handle on using the brush pens in particular.
Life As A Jawa is merely the beginning of my explorations of Jawas, the Galaxy Far, Far Away, and drawing with ink.
What Is Inktober?
Inktober is a month-long drawing challenge with the aim of helping people to improve their skills and develop positive drawing habits.
Throughout the month of October, participants create an ink drawing or sketch each day, following the daily prompt list.

Life As A Jawa
This project has been such an amazing journey, my imagination has been fired up creatively in so many different ways and the overall exploration of Jawas has been very inspiring.
Now I’m not one to leave it where it is and that’s the end of it, Life As A Jawa will be put together as an eSketchbook and made available for free download soon. Be sure not to miss out on that and Join The Journey to stay updated.
There’s also a few of these sketches that I’d quite like to revisit in the future and create more detailed artworks of, or explore the concepts further, such as the Jawa Jedi from Day 6 and further explore the survival skills highlighted in Day 16.
I mean, how cool would a graphic novel about a Jawa Jedi be, or a Jawa’s desert survival guide, there’s so much potential for interesting and exciting projects.

Exploring A Galaxy Far, Far Away
Equipped with my pencils, charcoal, ink and brushes, I regularly set out on long journeys into the galaxy and I always return with a new selection of Star Wars artworks, and I love to share the beauty!
