Hello again, El Moochadores! Yeah, post have been kind of sparse lately, but that’s only because life’s been kicking me around as if I were a giant hacky sack. However, there seems to be a calm in the storm, so I wanted to post about some future prints we have on the way. Recently Chudd has been doing a lot of sketch work, and I’m really proud of the results. It took some doing (and a small fist fight) but I finally convinced Chudd to make some prints of the work he’s done. We’re still in the process of getting high quality scans of the work, producing new pieces, and formatting them, but I thought I would give you a preview of some of the sketches that will soon be available on Murraybroscreative.com as prints and mini-prints. If Chudd keeps up with the “evil-eye” thing, we may even produce a small art book!
Anyways, check out the art below and keep checking back for updates as prints are made available!
It seems very wrong for us to have a website about geek creativity and not post about the loss of Carrie Fisher. The news of her death is already a few days old now, and I’m not sure I can write anything that a million other geek blogs haven’t written already, but her passing did make me very sad. More sad than any other celebrity death and that includes Leonard Nimoy and Dan Haggerty. Probably because of how much Star Wars has meant to me my entire life. Even outside Star Wars it was easy to see what a creative and funny woman she was. I actually read her book Wishful Drinking. Usually I never read books like, but I read that one, and I liked it. I’m not the first to write this, but it does feel very much like losing a family member. I never met her (and even if I had I would’ve been just another over eager fan boy like she probably had to deal with her whole life), but I still feel incredibly sad that she’s not on this planet anymore. However, I am very grateful that I got to live in the time of Star Wars, and especially Carrie Fisher.
Anyways, Look to the right, Chudd just finished a very cool Princess Leia illustration, and below I’m going to post a couple of Youtube videos showing Fisher auditioning for Star Wars and interviews. She is somebody I think we need to study more of. Her life was actually way too short, but there’s an infinite wealth of inspiration and creativity I think we can learn from it.
She drowned in moonlight strangled by her own bra! (her words…)
damn, we’re gonna miss her.

The last few days I’ve seen this video all over the interwebs, and… it’s really adorable. Kids with English accents are awesome! Listening to this kid talk is almost like getting to hear one of Charles Dickens’ characters discuss Star Wars! Why can’t all little kids sound like this? Wouldn’t they be slightly less annoying? Anyways, watch a cute little animation, and listen to a cute little kid discuss the cute little Slave Leia costume in this cute little youtube video from Adam Buxton! Damn, the English just sound better… I’m gonna go watch some Dr. Who and IT Crowd now…
Most of you have probably already seen all this today. I know these May the 4th be with YouTube videos are being passed around the internet today. Still, if you haven’t, here’s your chance. Also, if you click that last link there, you’ll see some bonus videos of the College Humor Cantina Auditions.
Also, I’ve included the trailer for the new Star Wars Rebels cartoon. Looks… interesting? I don’t know. Not sure how I feel about it. I guess I’ll have to see more. Anyhow, I hope you all have a happy May the 4th, go watch some of the original trilogy and enjoy your day.”
Well it’s Saturday again, so here’s another Atomic Moo Geek-Art… Thing… where we at Atomic Moo try to be a little creative ourselves and try our hand at drawing fan art. This is not exclusive to us though. Anyone else who wants to post their weekly geek-art along with us is more than welcome to (skill level does not matter). Just send a jpeg to Trog (email@example.com) and we’ll post it. Anyhow, let us know what you think.
Good morning El Moochadores! Before I leave for another fun filled day of grueling labor, I thought I’d post about something Comic-Con related. Like this great print Nicole Brune will be selling at this years San Diego Comic Con! Nicole (an all around great geek girl and artist) will only have 100 copies of this very sexy Leia print available for sell. So get over her to her booth early enough to get a your own! The model for this print was the beautiful Emily Addison (also a great geek girl that I like to call the future Mrs Trog! Well probably not, but it could happen! I’m a good looking guy …kind of) and that is one lucky damn Wampa fur! Excellent work Nicole, Keep it up!
Hey El Moochadores! In the past we’ve posted about some of the amazing art work done by Deviant artist Kit-Kit-Kit, and we’re still impressed by his level of talent. Check out the Princess Leia illustration above entitled “Here Goes!” Damn, I love me a tough-blaster swinging-Leia!
Dammit… Monday is tomorrow. That’s kind of bumming me out a little bit. This cheered me up though. It’s by YouTuber Teddie Films. They’ve done some pretty awesome and funny stuff in the past, like their Gotye Star Wars Parody. Anyhow, check out the video below, and enjoy. Later!
Good evening El Moochadores! Okay, I didn’t post all 66 images here. Sorry, but I’m very tired, and I want to go to bed soon. However, I did post a few sample images (mostly of Carrie Fisher, she was just so damn cute!!!) and if you want to see the rest please go visit Joinyouinthesun’s page on IMGUR. Anywhat, check out a few of the images below. Some of the 66 in the album are very popular, but there were many in there that I had never seen. Like the Wampa attacking the Snowtrooper. Give them a look at let us know which pictures you liked the most!
03/16/2013 / Trog / Comments Off on STAR WARS 80s High School by Artist Denis Medri!!!
Via Geek Tyrant; Good Morning El Moochadores! A while ago we posted about the the wonderful illustration by artist Denis Medri, but today I saw several more illustration by Medri depicting scenes from the original Star Wars trilogy as if it were a 1980’s high school drama. This is pretty cool and not a totally bad idea for an actual movie. Check out the sample images below and make sure to visit Medri’s Deviant Art page to see more of his brilliant work!
P.S. I tried to put them in order like in the actual films, but I’m also rushing out the door to get to work! So, sorry if some fall out of place!
