The list of Star Wars inspired illustrations and mashups is positively endless, though few catch your attention. At first sight, Star Wars inspired insect illustrations does not seem like something that would grab attention, but look at these excellent illustrations and you will enjoy them. Illustrator Richard Wilkinson describes the set as his way to represent the “link between the world of natural history classification and that of modern obsessions, while at the same time indulging my own love of painting these incredible forms”. The illustrations are available as prints on Richard Wilkinson’s website.
So here’s this cool stovetop kettle designed to look like the silhouette of Darth Vader.
