Stormtrooper is an artistic interpretation of a Stormtrooper riding a Dewback painted on black velvet to commemorate the 1997 re-release of Star Wars Special Edition movies. He signed this painting as "Guido" which was a nickname of his friend Kris who was to sell the painting in front of the Esquire movie theater in St. Louis MO where Star Wars was playing. The plan ultimately fell through due to much partying that night. Nate was 23 years old when he created this artwork while living at the Washington Avenue Art Lofts in downtown St. Louis, Missouri.
