Blast from the Past #260: Yoda and Taun-Taun Christmas card

Continuing with the theme of self-produced personal Christmas cards, here's one from the 1980's (the resolution of the image isn't good enough for me to read the date precisely). I always thought Yoda was the coolest character in the "Star Wars" movies, and the Taun-Taun one of the coolest creatures.



(On a technical note, I'm not sure why there are two rectangles drawn at different angles around Yoda and the sack of presents in this image. At first I thought they were paste-up lines, but on further inspection they appear to be drawn with pencil. Who knows? -- PL)

cool stuff man, I dig the enterprise in the sack. yoda's facial expressing makes me think of captain murphy from sealab 2021, probably the circles under the eyes and the cheek bones

Interesting, the picture is. Drawing of another franchise by Mr. Laird,yes. A cool rarity indeed!

Now if only Batman,Nightwing, and Oracle could be blessed with Pete's pencil.

You probably drew those rectangles so you could get the sleigh's angle better. At least that's what it looks like to me. :)

My grandma gave me a card once that had a picture of Yoda on the front and inside it said "Yoda one for me." I wonder what kind of Christmas presents Yoda would give? And do tauntauns fly? Maybe Yoda can use the force on them to levitate the sleigh like with Luke's x-wing.
