Great Collection Of Star Wars Art Books From Omni

StarWarsOmni has taken the time to round up a whole bunch of books devoted to Star Wars art. These are the kinds of books that should be found on the coffee table in the home of any nerd. “In a galaxy far from earth, a franchise was born. Star Wars was the catalyst for a systemic shift in brand marketing. But beyond R2D2 phones, Sith video games, and animated Clone Wars, Star Wars represented a significant evolution in sci-fi art. Star Wars was so visually stunning and inspirational that a generation of artists created an entire sub genre of science fiction art from it. Over four decades of direct and derivative-based pieces have been used to create an art universe as complex, as it is vast.”

Interesting to see what Lucas and the crew had planned on doing with the Star Wars series originally as compared to the finished product. Have a look at the books here.

Uh-Oh. Rumored Rogue One Reshoots

StarWarsThere has been a disturbance in the Force. This appears to be more than a rumor, as cast member Donnie Yen was heading back to London for more shooting. As far as we can remember whether it’s albums or movies, we’re in agreement with Slashfilm that redos are never a good sign. It seems that audience tests were not performing well.  Slashfilm has much more coverage here.

Cool Single-Person Spaceship Ideas

astronomy3Well, somebody has either a lot of time on their hands or a really cool job – or both. Actually, it’s a competition. “Genesis Engineering Solutions (GES) in Lanham, Maryland sponsored the engineering design contest as a way to integrate student creativity into the development of their Single-Person Spacecraft (SPS) concept. According to GES, the SPS includes an inner pressure vessel for shirtsleeve (normal clothing) operations and an outer unpressurized cylinder for micrometeoroid, orbital debris and impact protection.”

Have a look at the spaceship designs in more detail here.
