A new Star Wars movie will do a lot of things: Make money, spark debate, and inspire plenty of creativity, to name just a few. That last one will be on full display in Washington, DC starting next week for a show called “Holiday Starkillers Strike Back.”

Inspired by the release of The Last Jedi, a group of artists “embracing the low brow aesthetic and using the Force as their muse” are contributing to the show, according to artist Steven Strawn. Strawn did some some killer, yet slightly weird, toy photographs for the show; he’s joined by several other artists working in wildly different and colorful styles. Check out some of the work here.

Any Star Wars-themed art show that ranges from toy photography and blueprints, to pop art and weird dog comics, is all right by me.

“Holiday Starkillers Strike Back” runs from December 8 through January 20 at the Anacostia Arts Center in Washington, DC. The opening reception is from 6-8pm on December 8. For more information, including the schedule and contact information, visit this link.

The painting combining the bad guy helmets looks like a early work of the cubist painter Greedo. You can tell because he never shot first.
