Baroque Star Wars
Nice. But the imagery really looks more 18th than 17th century.
at least they aren’t calling it steampunk
Very nice, the style reminds me of Quentin Blake’s illustrations in the Roald Dahl books.
OK, there should have been a warning before scrolling down to this post!
Snorting coffee across the desk is not a fun way to start the day.
I really love this drawing. Bobba Fett doesn’t seem so tough with his blunderbuss and buckled boots.
@Hal: That’s because Star Wars steampunk has been done before.
nice boots, not sure about the dress. the balloon to hold up the bag is quite a nice idea, stylish, yet so practical.
I like the naked lady on his helmet throwing the horns, and what appears to be a piglet on his chest. Nice touches.
you are so right, the lovely nodding piglet is genius.
it’s so all about accessorizing.
I love how his Millennium Falcon has a status of a nude woman holding a cannon, and one of the Puritans is trying to cover it up with a great big figleaf.
These remind me of the illustration style of David Macaulay in The Way Things Work. I half expected Chewbacca to be a wooly mammoth.
Re: The Baroque Death Star
Jonathan Swift got there first with the flying city-state of Laputa (Gulliver’s Travels) which would bombard countries beneath with its cannon.
