Wanted: Steampunk Star Wars Illustrations


Freelance illustrator Mattais Adolfsson has created drawings of Star Wars characters and spacecrafts in the 17th century baroque style known for its opulence and detailed embellishments. There’s more Puritanical repression than menace of the Dark Side plaguing this galaxy; Darth Vader isn’t as intimidating when his helmet curls like a powdered wig, and the storm troopers look more inclined to use heightened rhetoric than a blaster gun. C-3PO — for the record — appears right at home.
