Fan Art of the Day: Star Wars Retold Through Famous Artworks

Since 2011, photographer David Eger has been working with Star Wars figurines to recreate iconic and familiar imageries from movie posters and album covers, as well as historical artworks like paintings and photographs. His first series 365 Days of Clones was a daily project, followed by the weekly 52 Weeks of Star Wars. This year, he is aiming for quality over quantity with 12 Months of Hope, Empire and Jedi. Hat tip to Wired!
