Geek Art: ‘Star Wars’ Characters As Street Art by Phil Postma

‘Star Wars’ characters as street art by Phil Postma:

This project started when I came across an image of a carded “R2-D2″ figure done up to look like a spray can. The card itself was blank initially, until various street artists put there designs on them. I thought they look pretty cool and gave me an idea on what to do with the various “Star Wars” doodles I have done over the years.
