Thanks for checking out Pluck the Day! A challenge to myself to post an original cartoon at least 5 days a week.
First – Happy 240th Birthday to my beloved Marine Corps.
During the past week I have seen/heard a lot of things from Mr. Mark Hamill, Luke Skywalker himself. First, while binge watching The Flash, I caught the episode where Mr. Hamill appeared as the Trickster. His portrayal of the dastardly villain intent on destroying the city was outstanding and one of my top highlights from season one. Then, during my run yesterday, I was listening to him on an episode of the “Talking Toons with Rob Paulsen” podcast. To get everyone on the same page, Rob Paulsen is a legend in voice acting and has a weekly podcast where he speaks to other actors in the business. For those who may not know, Mr. Hamill has had a very distinguished career as a voice actor. His most notable role has been his 20+ year career as The Joker from Batman. Starting in the cartoon and expanding to video games, Mark Hamill is known by many as the only true voice of the Crown Prince of Crime.
I started thinking at how good Mr. Hamill is at playing a villain. I distinctly remember the first time I heard him mentioned that he had hoped that Luke would have fallen to the Dark Side in Return of the Jedi. I thought he was crazy, or just an idiot. But now I get it. Now I think his portrayal of a Sith Lord would be remarkable.
So I did a mashup of Mark Hamill’s two iconic characters. For my money, I think a Jedi Joker would be the most feared of them all. Both sides of the force would be petrified of this guy because he is so uncontrollable. He doesn’t want power, which is the main objective of the Sith, he just wants to cause chaos.
So, with the endorphins from my run pumping, I put the above drawing together.
