My love for Star Wars was rekindled by the release of the new trilogy. I wasn’t 100% happy with the results, but the visuals were gorgeous and, as is often the case, the bad guys looked the coolest. No offense to the heroes of the rebellion, but the Empire's aesthetics and design have always seemed more interesting to me. I also love the cosplayers that pay tribute to this universe. Thanks to photographs of them for inspiration and personal imagination, this series of drawings was born.
