Listening to The Star Wars Minute Podcast I learned that the futuristic prop carried by an extra running through Cloud City in The Empire Strikes Back was actually a 1970s ice cream machine. My wife has a new ice cream cookbook coming out, so I thought I’d draw Willrow Hood as the unofficial space-spokesman ;)

I designed a 1 inch hand-lettered button to go along with my wife’s new Dairy-Free Ice Cream book. “Nuts” for nut milk ice cream! (I like puns way too much)

I have about 100 buttons left, so if you’d like one please reblog this and send me a message with your mailing address or email at: inquire@TheSpunkyCoconut.com

Everybody’s favorite nightclub in Arbroath, Scotland. I snapped this photo in 1999. I looked online just now, an it seems Danny De Vito still hasn’t come after them for using his name. Or maybe he really does own a nightclub in Scotland.
