Explore the Galaxy Far Far Away with Amazing Star Wars Art

Star Wars The Force Awakens premieres tomorrow (or tonight for those lucky ones with early release tickets) and I’m so excited to return to the Star Wars universe.

Fan art has long been a wonderful way to celebrate the thing that you love. And there is definitely plenty of Star Wars art out there!

Lucasfilm put on an official Star Wars art show recently at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles appropriately called Art Awakens. Not only was it a great way for fans to showcase their love of Star Wars, the event was a charitable effort as well, with the pieces being sold on Ebay and the proceeds going to UNICEF.

Check out some of the awesome Star Wars art created for the show:
