‘Wookie the Chew’ by James Hance – Review and Giveaway #jameshance

Every once in a great while an artist emerges that has the ability to capture our hearts along with our imagination; with childlike wonder, technical skill and plenty of whimsy, British born artist James Hance is creating magic with his original star wars inspired artwork. To own a piece of James Hance work is to own a piece of your geeky childhood but with a new twist.

James Hance calls his original artwork “Relentlessly Cheerful Art”, which let me tell you, it truly is. I cannot express to you enough how much I love his quirky creativity and his sense of whimsy. I was fortunate enough to be chosen to review his work and I squealed like a school girl and jumped at the opportunity.
I chose 3 prints, 1 for each of my kids. ‘Little Rebels’ for my daughter, ‘A Most Bold Adventure’ for my youngest son and ‘The Dark Starry Knight’ for my oldest son. I adore them and I cannot wait to frame them to put them in each of their bedrooms.

Not only is the very talented James Hance artistically gifted, he also knows how to write adorable, endearing stories. “Wookie the Chew  – The House At Chew Corner” is an adorable tale about Wookie the Chew whom is inspired by A.A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh and his quest for bobaberries (instead of honey). 

My very favorite part of the book is when Wookie the Chew was chased by flyfighters (instead of bees) after disturbing their hive in the giant tree (pictured on the left)This book is adorable and something your children will love. My son adores this story and can easily identify the similarities and quirky differences between Wookie the Chew and Winnie the Pooh.
