Designer Adriean Koleric is repainting and modifying vintage AT-ATs for his upcoming show HERD : rat-ATAT-touille. In his own words:
The idea behind the HERD series is to put focus on items of Western Pop culture that has and still influences me in the Design field as well as the new Artistic direction for ITEM. I wanted to show that these type of items, though mass produced and marketed, were infact what I considered art growing up as opposed to disposal product.
There’s plenty of other Star Wars-themed work at his blog, ITEM. Poke around! (via)
Dvice spotted Won Park’s amazing Star Wars (and Trek) dollar bill origami on DeviantArt. Up next? Serenity.
Björn Hurri has a number of great steampunk Star Wars drawings he’s sharing over at Gorilla Artfare. I was pretty impressed with his Yoda (clickthrough for the whole thing) and Leia, but there’s plenty more and they’re all fantastic: C-3P0, a jawa, a speeder bike, Jabba the Hutt, Fett, a stormtrooper, Chewbacca, Yoda, Han and Luke.
Illustrator Tom Whalen sells prints on Etsy in the Strong Stuff shop, including these two for Star Wars (sold out, sadly) and The Empire Strikes Back. See even more on his site or on DeviantArt. (via)
Check out ‘The Prototype’ and two other Star Wars pieces from illustrator Benjamin Carre at ConceptArt.org.
io9 includes Darth Vader in The Greatest Art Featuring 6 Iconic Scifi Villains. Some of it is fairly old hat (The Vader Project? So 2007!) but there’s always someone shocked by it. Besides, they have a brand-new spiffy robot chart as a consolation prize for those of us a bit too jaded for our own good.
Napoleon Trooper is a mashup of Star Wars and Jacques-Louis David’s ‘Napoleon Crossing the Alps’ by James Baker and Julie Ashcraft. (See also: NASA Trek.)
