A long time ago in a gallery far, far away….

Happy May the Fourth from Designer Daddy!

Concepción Studios is a California-based graphic design studio that specializes in vintage-style prints, posters and photographs for its music industry clients. They’ve worked with the likes of Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, MUSE and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, merging 60s-style design with contemporary irony and whimsy.

Yet it’s the studio’s Etsy store that drew my attention on this most blessed of holidays. The shop features, among other things, an out-of-this-world collection of Star Wars-inspired prints. Let’s take a stroll through the gallery, shall we?…

My favorite is this set of Princess Leia and Han Solo silhouettes. Click to enlarge and read the obvious, yet hilarious, captions.

HANLEIA

.

These next two pay homage to Warhol’s famous “Double Elvis.” I know I’m supposed to like Boba Fett more, but I think the Han interpretation is a smidge cooler.

HANWARHOL

 

Another Warhol-inspired print features Han’s blaster. And yes, he shot first.

BLASTER

 

Lastly, a gorgeously understated Episode IV poster, rendered mid-century modern style.

NEWHOPE

 

Episodes IV, V & VI are sold individually or as a set (click to enlarge). Episodes I-III not available — I guess in order to stylize something, it has to have some style to begin with.

TRILOGY

Visit Concepción’s Etsy store for even more retro renditions inspired by Wes Anderson films, classic movie quotes, and The Goonies.
