If Dr Seuss wrote Star Wars

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Illustration on Friday 8 June 2012

This is the clever project of cartoonist Adam Watson, which ‘started off as a throwaway doodle’ and morphed into something so much bigger. Yoda, Jabba … Dr Seuss never sounded so, erm, futuristic.

Star Wars French ballet disco

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Video on Tuesday 1 May 2012

Not quite Star Wars, not quite French, not quite ballet, and not quite disco. Bet you never knew Darth Vadar and 3PO ever had a feud. Or used The Force to play scissors, paper, stone. Warning: you’ll need to have a very high threshold for silliness to enjoy this without a hint of irony.

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Art on Friday 20 April 2012

These acrylic paintings of Star Wars characters rocking modern cult labels warrant more than a second glance. Illustrated by John Woo from Hong Kong (not the famous one), we can almost see Darth Vader do a hipster dance in his Band of Outsiders get up, while Padme Amidala looks entirely in character with her Gareth Pugh outfit.

Brilliant Star Wars concept paintings by Ralph McQuarrie

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Art on Tuesday 13 March 2012

I remember seeing some Ralph McQuarrie’s Star Wars concept paintings when I was a kid. I loved how subtly different they were from what finally got put on screen, making me imagine how things could have looked. In remembrance of McQuarrie, the official Star Wars site has a nice slideshow of his work.

Possibly the worst piece of television ever conceived, George Lucas does not want you to see this: ‘The Star Wars Holiday Special is a 1978 American television special set in the Star Wars galaxy. The special is notorious for its negative reception.’ Awesome.

By Sandy Carson in Video on Friday 25 November 2011

Okay, this might be a bit of a wildcard and too much of an in-joke for you non-Scottish speaking viewers with no access to subtitles. But it’s pure genius if you ask me. The weather is so bad in Scotland that it brings out the best in us. As well amazing You Tube dubbers. Like […]
