really classic Star Wars

The folks over at Worth 1000 (as in “a picture is worth 1000 words) recently had a Photoshop contest based on this member observation: I went to an art gallery the other day. The artworks were all right, I guess, but you know what they were missing? Wookiees. There wasn’t one Wookiee in sight. Also no Jedis, no Storm Troopers … in fact none of the artworks had any Star Wars elements at all!  And so a call to arms was made to insert Star Wars elements into famous works of art…


The contest is called Star Wars Ren  and here are a few of my favorites:





Hats off to all the talented artists!  Of course, I highly recommend you click here to go to the site, where you can view all 44 entries.  While you’re there, take a look through some of the other contests, where you’ll find this image from Super Hero Screw-ups:



And these from One Letter Off , where changing one letter of a film title results in a very different movie:






Yes. the weekend is already off to a good start.  Enjoy!

    Worth 1000 lives up to its name.

    This, however, is not a photoshop:
