This Entire Awesome Star Wars Poster Was Illustrated From Memory

Let's do a little experiment. Grab a pen and a piece of paper and, without doing an internet search, draw C-3PO and R2-D2. We all know what those droids look like, but how close can you get without peeking at a pic? John Hendrix has been sketching the Star Wars universe since he was a kid; now, as a grown-up illustrator, he's put that practice to good use for a visual love letter to the movies.

"Everything From Star Wars I Can Draw From Memory" is a genuinely fantastic tribute, chock full of characters, quotes, and visual ephemera. "I grew up on Star Wars and it informed a big part of my artistic sensibilities—including the power of imagination," Hendrix tells Gizmodo.


The results definitely make me want to revisit all my old pop culture faves. You can purchase your own print for $50 here. [John Hendrix via Matt Adam Keay]
