Spoonful of Star Wars Art Show

Artist Bwana Spoons has made one heck of a tribute with Spoonful of Star Wars – over 100 paintings of vintage Star Wars action figures! So I got this awesome commission to do every standard figure and variations there of… of the classic Star Wars action figure line. These are part still life part/part something else. The first sixty or so are from my personal collection, some of which have even survived with me since childhood. A pretty amazing feat considering what I put them through. Check out some of these amazingly cool portraits of Star Wars action figures here:   Check out more of these amazingly cool portraits of Star Wars action figures here: Classic SW Nerd. They will also be displayed in person Nov. 20 at DesignerCon.

May the schwartz be with you: Entire Star Wars “The Empire Strikes Back” in MS Paint [GIF]

Earlier this month, we posted Entire Star Wars “A New Hope” in MS Paint. After a hefty debate on DIGG, it came to our attention that the creator of this little jewel was a guy name foldsfive. Foldsfive, with the civil name David Court ultimately joined the discussion on DIGG and shared that there were more treasures to be found around on the internet. Sometimes I find myself amazed by the internet. How something I made an age ago can suddenly pick up interest again. It was something I made for fun (as an experiment to see whether I could do it, more than anything) for a site (www.b3ta.com) that wouldn’t post anything bigger than 250k. I did it all from memory, so the stuff about my incorrect lightsabre colours couldn’t interest me less. (and jesus wept, people accuse ME of not having a life for making it). At the end of the day doing that stuff donkeys…

May the schwartz be with you: Star Wars-Inspired Vintage Travel Posters

Thanks to io9, we just discovered artist Justin van Genderen’s minimalist takes on planets and places of the original Star Wars Galaxy. While the vintage graphic design trend is nothing new, and in fact, Zazzle created a series of Star Wars WPA-inspired travel posters last spring, it’s also something that we never tire of. Our inner Stars Wars geek wishes that van Genderen had included Coruscant and Naboo in his series, but he had over 450 fictional planets to choose from. We’ll forgive him this time.
