The Art of Princess Leia Tribute

You will know Craig Drake is a name synonymous with MilnersBlog, as I’m such a massive fan of his Patrick Nagel ‘Pop Culture’ style of visualisation and stunning palette of Geekologie inspired art, which firmly embraces film culture. But there’s one film character he’s featured more than any other, the late Carrie Fisher’s Star Wars character Princess Leia, which he respectfully showcased on his Facebook page after her passing.

Such a fitting tribute to the passing of Carrie Fisher who once said “No matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.” The Star Wars world lost another star with her passing.

Craig Drake’s fitting homage for his former employee, Lucasfilm shows no sign of abating with his recently released work.

And some up-and-coming work which I’m sure we’ll see at Star Wars Celebration 2017.

I’ve also stumbled across some of his classic ‘early’ geekologie inspired Star Wars art.




Star Wars Original Trilogy Vehicle Art

Here’s a nice little distraction from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens storm that is just beginning, check out these Star Wars Vehicles from the Original Trilogy by Illustrator Scott Park who manages to simplify our favorite film culture ships, transports and vehicles into their bare essentials and makes them look so playful and fun. This Canadian designer spent two months working on the vehicles for these original Star Wars Trilogy posters which feature all the vehicles from the movies, and in their order of appearance!

this is really stunning work.
