I love “Star Wars” and I love bicycles, two things that I think can be said about most red-blooded Americans. I also really like magical horses and comic books. So let’s be honest: When I found Mike Joos’ Etsy.com page, “Line Draw,” I had to stop myself from purchasing every one of his 5×7 prints, most of which feature some combination of the above pop culture artifacts.
Instead, I got in touch with Joos and asked him about his bike obsession, comic books and Boba Fett vs. Darth Vader on a unicorn.
