STAR WARS 80′s High School Re-Designs by Denis Medri
I truly had every intention to actually produce some sort of original content for the site this week then I saw this and I just HAD to share it. Artist, Denis Medri, has taken George Lucas’ Star Wars characters and stuck them smack dab in the middle of a John Hughes movies… or Back to the Future as in the case of Luke. When I saw these it blew my mind, what a clever spin on characters that every geek has seen a thousand times!
After a little looking around his Deviant Art page I saw that this isn’t the first time Mr. Medri has taken beloved characters and completely re-imagined them. He’s taken the Justice League and made them western, Spider-man as Steampunk, Rockabilly Batman characters, and his take on The Avengers in a fantasy setting! Fantastic stuff. Take a look around his page, you won’t be disappointed.
Now though check out the rest of the Star Wars crew.

If you are a creative person you have no doubt suffered a creative block or two, if not then you are neither a) lying or b) bragging, in which case, I say “knock it off, asshole.” I am a long-time sufferer of creative blocks. I’ve always just accepted it as a chronic condition and tried my best not to beat my head against the wall between me and my potential greatness. It had not occurred to me to ever figure out where these blocks were coming from, until now. Instead of looking inward for the answer, I looked to Google, as I do for most everything in my life. I read a slew of articles, most of which, outlined the same reasons for creative blocks. I compiled the top five that I felt pertained to me.
