Just to keep the celebration for the upcoming movie release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. As a follow-up from my previous article, I decided to put together a fun list of cool gadgets for any Star Wars fans. This has been a lot of fun to put together as a Star Wars fan myself. Check out, you might find something quite enjoyable for your partner, sibling or friend. Remember…the Force will be with you, always.
Only a few days before the movie release of the anticipated Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Are you going to watch it? With the holidays coming at the door, we shall have some spare time for "the Force". Following the massive success from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I can't wait to see what's in store for the second film in this sequel trilogy.
Today is the day where the movie Rogue One: a Star Wars Story, it’s pretty exciting and are you gonna watch it today or this Weekend? Whatever if you’re a fan or not, it’s just incredible to see how inspirational designers will create and make as a tribute to the movie. Let’s take a look at the work of Pixel Jeff who is a Pixel Artist based in Taipei, Taiwan.
We are probably sure that you are excited for the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story coming out next month. Just like we are as well! You’ll probably be seeing lots of promotional content online, it’s all part of the campaign. We would like to share something more appropriate to us, how about a poster series?
Star Wars inspires designers everywhere to come up with fantastic artworks. We've seen many great pieces like posters, statues, CG artworks and more, but I really love seeing gifs inspired by this universe. Here's a brief selection of some fantastic little gifs made by some really talented folks. For more of their work, simply click each image! In their portfolios you'll find much more great gifs. I hope you enjoy these! Cheers. ;)
Today I am changing a bit of the focus of the posts to focus strictly on the much anticipated launch of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Opening in theaters here in the US tomorrow, I felt compelled to celebrate the latest chapter in Star Wars history. In lieu of posting regular fan art I had to post about the work that Marko Manev posted which merges another of my passions, Noir style. The artworks are quite inspiring, simple, elegant and of course noir. Marko Manev, born 1985 in Skopje, Macedonia is a conceptual mixed-media artist, graphic designer & illustrator.
We're seeing much more female characters under the spotlight these days, and hopefully we're gonna see even more in the future! Among the Jedi, there are very few rocking the Force and displaying some sweet fencing skills with their lightsabers, so it's always great to see artists coming up with these characters. Here you can see some strong female characters with their lightsabers... this pumps me up for the new Star Wars and hopefully we'll find out Rey is the actual Jedi in this story. The man behind these awesome illustrations is Polish artist Wojtek Fus.
This will be really outdated someday, but I'm really pumped for next December, when Star Wars Episode VII will hit the silver screen. I bet every geek out there is pretty excited about this, and whenever I get to see the Millennium Falcon flying, I tend to smile. Kurt Miller, an American artist, comes up with astonishing illustrations showing air and space battles between Tie Fighters and X-Wings. These are so good I wanna cry. These are so good I wanna fly a X-Wing. Ok, ok... I gotta lower my expectations, otherwise this film will flop. I can't afford that.
Last week we had some really exciting news in terms of movie trailers, first the new Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens and a couple of days later the new and super anticipated Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. I am looking forward to both movies, in special the new Batman, however Star Wars is looking fantastic and to get us even more excited I would like to share the work of Riyahd Cassiem titled Darth Vader. Riyahd Cassiem is freelance artist, specializing in 2D and 3D visual development for the entertainment industry.
Star Wars fans everywhere are just going nuts over the first trailer for Star Wars Episode VII - The Force Awakens. We got to see some fantastic scenes from a Galaxy far, far away, like the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon, doing some crazy stunts. This trailer has got some artists excited and now we have some super awesome fan art for you guys to see! As time passes, we're definitely gonna see more of these fantastic pieces. Also, if you've seen any more great fan art, let us know! I hope you enjoy these. Cheers! ;)
It's always a great day when you find a real slick set of works like these by artist David Barton, aka Limpfish. These are his take on famous fine art pieces, mixing it up with pop culture elements, like Star Wars and The Simpsons. These are definitely a must have. Yes... you can have these. You may buy them at his shop at Imagekind. Unfortunately for me the worldwide shipping costs more than the print itself, so no "Seurat's Monday Morning in Chicago" for me.
Some artists get really famous for some concepts they come up with. Actually, a person might not even actually come up with a concept, but if a certain artwork of that artist gets attention, usually people will say that any other artwork from other artists that come after that is a mere copy. Although it is important to acknowledge original artists, it's a fact that their pieces become inspiration to others. Inspiration is out there, and IMO it's impossible to say that styles are property of people.
Since the entire Star Wars franchise was sold to Disney, we've seen many news about the upcoming Episode VII movie. The original actors are most likely to be back and I think now it's a good time to get in the mood for more of this amazing universe. What would you like to see in the theaters? Expanded Universe stories or original script? I would love to see something from the expanded universe for sure! Now, these illustrations were done by really talented artists. For more of their art, please visit their portfolio simply by clicking each image. Enjoy! Cheers. ;)
Star Wars are one of the few subjects that I'm probably never getting tired of. I'm definitely not the biggest fan out there, but I really enjoy the whole culture around it and love how much illustrators are inspired by it. So much art to see.
I've been to very few exhibitions in my life, but there's some that would be worth traveling abroad just to visit, like the Star Wars Identitites Exhibition, which will open in April, in Canada. Sometimes I feel all good events happen in Canada. I'm jealous.
I find it really sad when I get to know about a great artist only when he or she dies. Unfortunately that happened again in March 3rd when Star Wars concept artist, Ralph McQuarrie, passed away.
One of the biggest influences around Abduzeedo's look is the good old shiny neon. We love it, and it's great to see illustrations with it, like these, made by Digimental Studio. Pretty sweet, I'd say.
We've seen many typography works here at Abduzeedo and we sure love when we get to see 2 things we love together, like Typo and Star Wars! That's just the case of the work H-57. These are some good looking Star Wars posters made from characters. Fresh! H-57 is a advertsing agency from Italy with clients from all sorts of medias, like TV, Radio, Print and Web. For more information about them make sure to check out their Web site at http://www.h-57.com/. You will have to practice a little bit of your italian though :)
I came across this awesome collection of minimalist poster designs from the Star Wars Galaxy and it really inspired me with the simplicity of the design and the complexity of the meaning. These posters were designed by Justin Van Genderen, a freelancer designer/illustrator from Chicago. Check it out!
We often get to see some cool Star Wars references. Memorabilia, parody videos, and many many other things... we even had a full article about the Star Wars Culture one year ago. One way that people often find to celebrate these fantastic movies, is by illustrating it! Whether commissioned or not, there are some fantastic illustrations on the matter, and I just had to share a few with you. From Adam Hughes to new artists, these are some great images that really illustrate the Star Wars universe, really cool!
