Star-Wars-Darkside-Group-Print-by-Rich-Pellegrino

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, one of my favorite artists Rich Pellegrino has released original paintings of four characters from the dark side in the movie series. In addition to a limited edition group and individual prints featuring some the baddies, you can also buy the original painting of each character separately.

‘Episode II : Blue Milk’ – Short Animated Film Based on Star Wars

Blue Milk- Short Fan Made Film Based on the Star Wars Trilogy

Blue Milk is a the second in a trilogy of humorous fanmade short (and I mean extremely short) films which pay loving homage to “the greatest franchise in the galaxy” — Star Wars.  The series is the brainchild of the good folks at Picnic Studio, an animation firm based in East London which was founded by directors Mina Song and Liam O’ Connor from Korea and the UK.

Rebel Blips Approaching! will be a series of short-shorts that celebrate those kids who can’t shake their fandom. When not at the movies or sat in front of a TV, they must turn to their own inventiveness to get their fix. Each blip is based around a seemingly mundane object from real life or a grimy corner of the galaxy. These are for those earnest mini geeks of the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s. The ones that never stopped playing (even when the prequels dropped).

Episode III: Big Stick, the last film in the series will be released later this year.

“Old Wise One” – Stunning Painting of Jedi Master Yoda by Rich Pellegrino

Rich Pellegrino's Old Wise One - Yoda Illustration

One of my favorite contemporary artists Rich Pellegrino has released art prints of a brand new painting of Yoda, arguably the greatest Jedi master in the Star Wars universe. Titled “Old Wise One,” Pellegrino has faithfully captured Yoda’s sageness and twinkling eyes in his own distinctive artistic style.

The 11” x 14” prints are limited to a run of only 200, and will come signed and numbered by the artist. You can buy the prints at The People’s Printshop at only 19.95 each.

Hit the jump to see a ‘making of’ video of the painting.
