Now I’ve always loved Star Wars art, and the folks at GeekTyrant reminded me again how amazing this franchise is. Yes I’m biased but I don’t really care.

I love these pieces and I’ve actually seen them before and Cédric Delsaux is one of my favourite photographers.

“French photographer Cédric Delsaux started out taking photos of what he calls “the peripheral zones” of modern cities – wastelands, empty deserts, scrapyards. Yet something was missing – and then he had the idea of placing characters from Star Wars into the images, giving C3PO and the Millennium Falcon modern settings that somehow seamlessly fit.

His haunting photos help us reflect on the urban environments of Paris and Dubai, the addition of a few stormtroopers and Darth Vader laying bare the effect of these domineering concrete landscapes.

George Lucas calls them ‘one of the most unique and intriguing interpretations that I have seen.'”

Amazing stuff. And looks like George Lucas agrees. Find Dark Lens on Amazon to get these awesome prints.

Check out these fantastic artworks by Liam Brazier

Here is an interview with the creator of these awesome artworks:

Can you please tell us about your fascination with pop culture characters?
I’m a product of my generation, I would surmise. I’m creaking on into my thirties now and those big tent-poles of pop iconography were really cementing themselves in every child’s cerebellum during the 80s and 90s. Star Wars, for example, WAS a good part of my younger years not only to me, but to many. When asked to illustrate an image of a coffin I came back with zombies.

That stuff never leaves you, it just sort of sits there in your subconscious infecting everything you do from then on in – it becomes not an entertainment but an education, of sorts. Bottom line; I draw this or I draw that because a) I’m not the best at over-thinking things, and b) I felt like it in that moment. As a writer should ‘write what they know’, an illustrator should draw what they like.

How were these illustrations made? Illustrator?
I suspect if I had ever used Illustrator it may have saved me more than one headache in the past, but no. When I first started dabbling in the geometric ‘style’ about ten years ago it developed out of method; I was carefully, (too) obsessively, scalping out tiny triangles of different colored paper and spray-mounting them onto board – a hugely lengthy process that was just as dull as me explaining it.. never the less, nowadays Photoshop’s triangular lasso tool has simplified things a little as I draw and color each shape, stepping back, checking and adjusting as I go.

Can you tell us a bit about your creative process?
Obviously the style lends itself to certain things. It’s quite ‘hard’ and constructed, so the Star Wars helmets were a good jumping off point, but I’m also drawn to the challenge of more natural forms and the abstract results it often creates (say, Superman’s billowing cape).

I’m incredibly fond of the bizarre intricacies of language too – I thought of the titles for the superhero pieces way before anything visual.

Do you have more pop culture illustrations coming?
I’ve just completed a private commission along similar lines, but people haven’t been shy with suggestions so yes, definitely. Time is my greatest enemy!

Do you have any tips for aspiring illustrators?
As long as you’re aspiring you’re doing it right.

How do you stay creative?
I’m lucky enough to have a day job (illustrating and animating) that panders to my creative craves, but if anything an already sparking brain just adds more to the backlog of ideas I’ll never have time to complete. You can add me to the roster whom have a print button for their head on their Amazon Wish Lists.

Finally, do you have any stories you’d like to share?
I am going to, hopefully, meet the actual Boba Fett (Jeremy Bulloch) this weekend and show him my scribble. Watch out for the disgustingly torn up scraps for sale on eBay Monday, I guess.

Thanks for the interview, Liam. Love your work!

Adam Carlson designed this pretty weird and well err.. weird replacement poster of Batman and Robin in a classic image, with C3PO and R2D2.

Weird, but cool.

Michael Myers has created these pretty geeky pixellated Star Wars posters. “obviously inspired by the iOS game, Sword and Sworcery.”

I think they’re pretty awesome! What u think?

These cute little guys were created by this dude, Mikey Doodles. The 65 Lil’ Star Wars characters you see here.

Mikey wants to create more and maybe offer them on posters and a series of t-shirts. And maybe even create the whole franchise in these lil guys! Well I tall order.. Would you buy into it?

Hey guys here are a more detailed view for my previous post Star Wars: Episode V in Short.

Awhile ago I found an iconograph showing A New Hope‘s story in just icons. Here’s another one this time we see Empire Strikes Back getting the icon bridging, again by Wayne Dorrington

Love Star Wars? Love Dr Who? I do, if you love one or the other or both this is so cool. This print is a limited edition tshirt featuring Cyber3P0 and R2Dalek. If you want one go to Tee Fury.

Wow! How cool is this… This extravagance can be found in an Hawaii Mansion. What an amazingly looking home theatre! I would so love to watch Star Wars in here.. Or any sci-fi film, except of course Star Trek (it sucks)…

Born Rich had this to say:

“The new range of home theater equipment has brought the cinematic experience of the movie halls into your living room. But for those who want to customize the whole experience, prefer to do it in style by turning their TV rooms into themed home theaters complete with state-of-the-art home-theater amenities. And once again a sci-fi-themed home theater takes the lead. Modern Home Systems, San Diego has customized this luxurious Star Wars-inspired home theater inside this roughly 10,000-square-foot estate in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The luxurious Star Wars theater set in a 20-by-14-foot space embeds the hi-fi technology to turn the reel life experience into real life experience, with a 107-inch Stewart Filmscreen display, life-size R2D2 and C3PO robots that talk, a three-dimensional fiber optic ceiling and a motorized pocket door entrance. The home theater room features two full racks of equipment that rotates 180 degrees for convenience of the homeowners.

Besides a dedicated sci-fi home theater, the main aim was to give uniformity of control and one-button access to each of the six TVs in the home to make it convenient for his kids to enjoy their sci-fi cinema right at the TV instead of having to go to a utility room to load in a DVD.”

Exuberance at its maximum.
