Mark a.k.a. Broken Journalist created this awesome steampunk AT-AT walker as an engagement present for his fiancée. There are so many wonderful little details on this piece. It’s clearly a labour of geeky love.
To Mark and his Star Wars and steampunk-loving lass, the Geyser of Awesome congratulations on your engagement!

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…. two narwhals engaged in an epic battle. It was the beginning of the Nar Wars.
Riverside, California-based artist Austin Frankel (aka Rebelart) created this awesome illustration depicting the “Jedi of the sea” dueling with their lightsaber horns. It’s currently available for purchase as a t-shirt via Threadless.

We love this wonderful illustration promoting both the awesomeness of literacy and a brand new book by one of our favourite cartoonists, Jeffrey Brown.
Entitled Star Wars: Vader’s Little Princess, the book is a delightful collection of comics depicting the relationship between Darth Vader and Princess Leia had he been responsible for raising her. It’s a follow-up to the equally awesome Star Wars: Darth Vader and Son in which the Dark Lord of the Sith is playing an active role as father to young Luke.
This is Star Wars imagined in a way you’ve never seen before. It’s cute, tender, and very funny. We think it’s pretty awesome.

Have you ever seen a cuter Wookiee family portrait? This awesome painting is the latest work by artist and Geyser of Awesome friend Kristin Tercek, aka Cuddly Rigor Mortis (previously featured here). It was created for a group Star Wars-themed exhibition hosted by Gallery Nucleus and entitled Saga in the Stars: A Tribute to a Galaxy Far, Far Away.
“This is a large piece for me (15” x 11.25”) and I really wanted to make a statement since Star Wars shaped the course of my life. I present “Kaapauku Life Day Portrait” with Chewie and his family, Lumpy, Itchy and Malla (anyone see the Star Wars Holiday Special?). I hope this piece makes everyone smile because it was so much fun to paint!”
The show opens Saturday May 4th and runs through May 26th. Click here to view more pieces from this stellar exhibition.
We may tend to think of Stormtroopers simply as anonymous henchmen of Galactic Empire, but that’s probably because we rarely get to see them with their guard down. Sometimes Stormtroopers grow bone-weary and it’s a lucky thing when little Pikachu are there to offer support.
This heartwarming and delightfully geeky candid family photo was taken by Coolmikeol during FanimeCon 2011 in San Jose, CA. Fanime is one of North America’s largest anime conventions and has been running since 1994. You can revisit this photo any time you like over at the Department of Awesome Parenting.
