This Is The Droid You're Looking For

As you may recall, I was offered a very unique project a few weeks ago. A friend of my wife has a baby who will have to wear a DOC band to reshape his skull and she wondered if I would use my talents to decorate it. Her husband and I worked together briefly at the elementary school where I teach art, and where he was assistant principal. We hit it off immediately since we are both huge Star Wars fans. Naturally, their request for the DOC band was to give it a Star Wars theme. To say the least, I was more than happy to help them out. A brief brainstorming session went from decorating the helmet with small Jedi frogs to an idea that only seemed natural: R2-D2.

And as you may remember from my last post, part of the decoration included a special Jedi character. Since their baby's theme in his nursery is frogs, I came up with an amphibian Jedi at their request. He's located on the back. I shall name him Obi-Frog Kenobi.
