According to the artist, the two droids are “one of the greatest duos in the history of cinema” as well as leading characters in the beloved  franchise. Although the plot of movie was a bit too complex for the artist who was very young at the time of its release, he distinctly remembers the droid duo and associates them with the nostalgia of family gathering in front of the TV, fighting for the seat, and watching together,

Perfectly capturing the characters’s silhouette and aura whilst remaining obscured, this simple yet impactful artwork by Whatshisname reflects his aim of conveying “our childhood heroes [reaching] out to us with an extended hand and saying, ‘Hello, I’m still here, do you remember me?’ or if those are fading memories, they are saying goodbye.”
