A new Star Wars movie is out this weekend, but the story that has engaged fans is really in the series, The Mandalorian. Mando and Baby Yoda are the breakout stars. Everything about the series production throws back to the formula of the original Star Wars movies, as in their practical effects, beautiful sets, amazing creatures and engaging actors. Not overdoing the CGI. The show revisits characters and alien species we loved from Episodes IV, V and VI. The element that really works is the simple stories that revolve around Mando and his sidekick, Baby Yoda.

So my fan art illustration goes to Baby Yoda in The Mandalorian.

Since Disney acquired the franchise, the Star Wars story and characters took an interesting direction. Do you like how episode 7 (The Force Awakens) and episode 8 (The Last Jedi) have turned out?

The part I do enjoy is how they breathed new life for a whole new generation and we old school fans get to experience the nostalgia we had as kids. Those opening credits gets me every time. And John Williams’ musical score still gives me tingles.

I created fan art postcards in celebration of Star Wars. The set of 4 cartoon drawings are now available at my store.

May the force be with you!

My cartoon celebrates the classic scene from the original Star Wars trilogy. It also honors the old but wise Yoda. I remember as a kid learning how powerful this short wrinkly creature was. It is totally shocking. Right? Yoda is also the perfect representation the idea in Asian culture to respect your elders. In many ways, he is ultimate hero of the galaxy.

By the way, a movie called Solo: A Star Wars is out this weekend. Which is your favorite film out of all of the Star Wars franchise so far?

Tennis fans, mark your calendars, and set your DVRs.  Wimbledon will be on from June 22th to July 5th, 2009.  After the fall of Nadal’s reign and the return of Federer’s supremacy at the French Open, who knows what the All-England Club will bring us?
