We’ve been fans of Kevin Tong for a while now. Aside from being an extremely talented illustrator, Kevin is also a nerd at heart (what a combo).
His new print “A linch Pin Droid” is his own homage to Science Fiction’s favourite robotic sidekick R2D2. Using his powers for good, Kevin has created an exploded view of the little mechanical wonder in this dynamic and highly-detailed print.
At $50, it’s a great deal.
*However, be warned: Should you hang this in your living room it will undoubtably repel any hopes of kissing a girl. Be safe. Display it on the ceiling above your bed. By the time she (or he) sees it, it will already be too late.
May the force be with you (Don’t act surprised, you knew that was coming).

The Art of Tron Legacy Book review

Try this on for size:
36 Year old “bhilmers” created this wonderful adaptation of the opening credits for Star Wars – A new hope. The most interesting twist is that he re-imagined it through the eyes of Saul Bass (1920-1996).
A really great homage to one of the world’s greatest graphic designers. We love it when genres clash.
“If Star Wars was filmed two decades earlier and Saul Bass did the opening title sequence, it might look like this. This was a school project. The song is “Machine” by the Buddy Rich Band off the album Big Swing Face (1967)”
