This is a second installment of Gallery of Movie Stars Caricatures. While I was in art school, I earned extra money as a street artist. Even though I starved, my caricatures of kids, adults, dogs and cats seemed to go over well. In March of 1963, a motorcycle accident ended my attendence to art school. After a long rehab and learning how to walk again, by 1965 I was “in the Army now.” Funny how life can turn on a dime.

His early career in the movies and TV was discouraging to "Harry" Ford and in 1969 he took up carpentry. Four years later he landed the role as "Bob Falfa" in American Graffiti (1973). That was followed by his role as "Han Solo" in Star Wars (1977). By this time he probably gave up his job as a carpenter.
