Stuart Freeborn RIP

Here's a quick sketch of another person intimately linked with the Star Wars universe who has finally passed over and become one with the force. Stuart Freeborn, a make-up artist,  may not be instantly recognisable by name but his creations are globally familiar - his most iconic being Yoda (the pea-green, pint size, sith-botherer from the Star Wars films, in case you didn't know). Apparently, Yoda was based on himself - fair play!
