7/52 | The Gamorreans

52 Weeks of Star Wars is a weekly photo project starring various characters from the Star Wars franchise. This photo project is a continuation of sorts to my original series; 365 Days of Clones, specially my Cloned Photos mini-series.

 

Today marks the seventh creation in this year long adventure. As the title suggests; 52 Weeks of Star Wars, one new photo will be taken, edited and added to the running total every Sunday. The twist is that all the images will be a recreation of sorts of a previous image. Some; like today, will be a recreation from a movie poster, while others will be recreations of famous images of the 20th century or album covers. There may even be the odd recreation of a painting!

 

“The Gamorreans” is my recreation of the Matt Groening’s "The Simpsons Movie" poster. The Simpsons is a cartoon series based upon the middle class American lifestyle. The show takes place in the fictional town of Springfield and parodies American culture, society, television and many aspects of the human condition.

 

Some of you may be wondering why I chose to create a Cloned Photo based upon the Simpsons. Today just happened to the 500th episode! I Thought it would be fun to pay homage to one of the greatest “kids” shows ever. I also thought there would be some good connections between Homer and the Gamorrean Guard. Mmm...donuts...

 

Enjoy!
