"You Must Unlearn What You Have Learned."

     Sometimes, I like to go to this little place in the back of my mind where the Star Wars prequels don't exist. In this little place, I can let my imagination go wild contemplating what it was like for a young Obi-Wan and Anakin having adventures in a universe completely free of midichlorians and roger-rogers.

Here's my take on Obi-Wan from this alternate reality.

     When we first meet Obi-Wan in "A New Hope," he's supposed to be "laying low." He's a fugitive on the Empire's most-wanted list, so I like to think that his attire isn't a Jedi uniform, but just something an old man on Tatooine might wear. After all, it wouldn't make much sense for a wanted war criminal to be walking around in full uniform. I imagined that the Jedi attire would be something similar to what Luke wears in "Return of the Jedi." I drew this version with that in mind, and I also threw in some elements from Ralph McQuarrie's earlier concept drawing of Obi-Wan.

     It's fun to think this way, but unfortunately, I eventually have to return to reality, or as I call it... the "Jar Jar-verse."
