Bill Green took his inspiration for this Star Wars-themed creation from the dent made when first cracking the shell of a hard-boiled egg with a spoon. “I’ve always thought, ‘It’s like a Death Star.’ ” To create the detail, Green worked from movie stills on the Internet. Painting straight lines on the small orb presented a Wookiee-sized challenge. He solved the problem by mounting the egg on a cordless drill with Play-Doh, then spinning it slowly while he held the brush in place. As a graphic artist best known for the creative posters he has designed for the touring Lebowski Fest, Green spends most of his days working at a computer, so he welcomed the chance to take on a physical medium, even if it meant going through about a carton and a half to get that dent just right. “I ate a lot of eggs last week.”
