This weeks nerd art spotlight goes to Joe Corroney. Ol’e Joe has been providing Lucasfilm with official Star Wars artwork for books, trading cards, comic books, posters and magazines since 1997. He recently created a set of World War II inspired Star Wars Propaganda posters. Provided the artwork of the marching Storm Troopers and the trio of lightsabres of Mace Windu, Obi-Wan and Anakin Skywalker is stunning, nobody should be acknowledging the trio of trash that is the Star Wars prequels. We forgive Joe in his lapse of not solely recognizing the original holy trinity. Regardless his retro art influences the attitude of Celebration, Togetherness and Unity. Which are all ideas that describe the Star Wars fan community and thus make these a must own.

Joe is selling these pieces as original art for $250 a piece (click here for Joes page). Heh, nobody said  Celebration, Togetherness and Unity were cheap.
