May the Fourth Be With You #StarWarsDay





It's May the Fourth aka Star Wars Day - the most important internet holiday in the GALAXY!

To help us celebrate the day we rallied our artists to share some of their Star Wars inspired art with us.

Behold our May the Fourth Be With You art show!

 

First up, we've got a series of beautiful digital paintings featuring Han Solo and Chewie, Leia Organa, Finn and Rey from Rob Brunette, Background Painter on Luna Around The World, Brown Bag Toronto.

Not quite a drawing but we're sure you'll agree it's still a work of art, our Brown Bag Manchester based Producer David Townsend shared a photo of his son Sabre's haircut.

“This is a photo of my sons latest haircut. Plus his name is Sabre (to show the geeky commitment his mum and I have to the franchise!)” - David Townsend

Another photo we had to share is of our Dublin-based Assistant CG Supervisor Matthew Lloyd's Star Wars model collection!

“Ive always been a huge Star Wars fan and collected all the different models when I was younger.

This collection started purely by accident. I picked up one of the models when they were released last year as it was well made and looked really cool. Roll on 12 months and the collection has grown so big I've had to take some of it home. I may soon need a bigger desk.” - Matthew Lloyd

Draw this Grand Jedi Master, he did. Timothy Chan, Layout Artist on Luna Around The World, Brown Bag Toronto gives us the wonderful Yoda.
