And Now For Something Completely Different

The story of the Wookie

So i was asked what was going on with the Wookie Picture in my Profile....

I am an Advertising Graphic Artist by trade.

I work for Lee Enterprises, the US's 4th largest publishing company, at a local newspaper.

In a strange way, the artists are like a family and we mock and harrass each other just like family.

So when one of my co-worker's birthday came up, I put his face on pee-wee herman riding a bike for a "Happy Birthday" ad. He was not so amused, and when my birthday came up 2 weeks later, I looked in the paper and what did I see?

The wookie picture. Though to his consternation, I've used it a lot as a picture of myself a LOT since. I think it is funny as hell and will likely use it for a long time.

Yes, it's my hair. and for the most part, My beard.

And that is the story of the Wookie Picture.


  1. Damn - I was hoping for so much more - lol

  2. Sorry there was not more to it, but that is all I've got.


What have you to say on this?
