Calvin and Hobbes Awaken

Brian Kesinger, a story artist at Disney animation, created a great collection of Star Wars: The Force Awakens drawings done in the style of Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes.

Star Wars up close

There is a gallery on Imgur that shows close up photos of many of the models and sets used in the original Star Wars trilogy. It is amazing to see the care and craftsmanship that went into each model–even the ones that only get a few second of screen time. There are a couple of examples below, but the whole gallery is worth exploring.

There was so much great art and care that went into the production of the three original Star Wars films. And now, 30 years later, there are still new and imaginative remixes and fan creations–like this Auralnauts video that made Gabi and I laugh and laugh last night–keeping the work as fresh as ever.
