Here’s my piece inspired by Princess Leia for Gallery 1988’s Star Wars: Art Awakens gallery show and charity auction, a collaboration between Gallery 1988, Disney, LucasFilm, and Bad Robot. Pieces in the show will be auctioned off for charity on eBay on Friday, November 13th. If you’re in Los Angeles, you can see the artwork in person on Saturday and Sunday (November 14th and 15th) from 11am–10pm at Gallery 1988 (West). Find out more info here and support a good cause!
Almost everything in this piece is a reference from the original Star Wars trilogy: the symbols of the Rebel Alliance and the Empire, band patches for Max Rebo Band and the Mos Eisley Cantina band, “Rebel scum,” tattoos of Alderaan and Leia’s blaster, modified X-wing pilot gloves, the vest Leia wore on Hoth, her pants from Endor, the chain she used to strangle Jabba, and of course her hair from A New Hope. If you couldn’t tell, I had a lot of fun with this!

At day, Eric Geusz is a software engineer, but during his free time, he’s also a freelance artist, and a very talented one at that. Recently, the man has started illustrating common household items, such as a playtation controller or a can opener, into starship designs. Check out some of our favorites below!

Lynda Carter - 1970s
Corruption, persecution, racial tension, financial inequality… Civil conflict across the globe has exploded. As inequality tears the very fabric of society the discontentment of the masses manifests itself in violent public disturbances and disorder.
RIOT – Civil Unrest is a simulation video game that recreates some of the world’s infamous riots. Campaigns include: The Italian NoTav opposition to a planned high-speed rail link between Turin and Lyon; The Arab Spring uprising in Egypt; Indignados, the anti-austerity protests in Spain; and Keratea, the landfill fuelled struggle against the government in crisis-racked Greece. In addition, there are over 30 single scenarios including London in the UK and Oakland in the USA.
RIOT – Civil Unrest’s creator, Leonard Menchiari, experienced rioting first-hand at the NoTAV protests in Italy. He created the game to tell the stories and express the emotions felt during these clashes. What triggers the anger and aggression? Often outnumbered, what does a police officer endure during the conflict?
RIOT – Civil Unrest features Leonard Menchiari’s unique and beautiful pixel art. The Bologna-based development team worked hard on the crowd behaviour. Each individual character has its own artificial intelligence and personal space that gives the overall crowd mass very realistic and fluid movement.
