Craig Drake‘s work can stop you in your tracks. Drake uses what feels like a bare minimum of elements to perfectly represent his subject in a striking and distinctive way. You might call it “minimalist,” but that would be a discredit to the energy contained in each piece.
In 2014, Drake had a very-well received solo show at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles. A few of the pieces even made my best of the year list. This year, the did a follow up show that contained even more beautiful work based on properties we all know and love. Stuff like Star Wars, Tron, Kill Bill, Akira, Pulp Fiction and more. Below, check out images from the latest Craig Drake Solo Show. Read More »

By now you’ve heard it a million times. After J.J. Abrams passed on the film a first time, Brad Bird was given the opportunity to direct Star Wars Episode VII. Bird, however, had to choose between Star Wars and Tomorrowland, a film he was also passionate about which was already in pre-production, and had a star attached. Obviously, Bird chose Tomorrowland, Abrams reconsidered and both are very happy with those decisions. However, fellow Star Wars fan and Tomorrowland co-writer Damon Lindelof recently said he was sure Bird was going to leave their project. In fact, he told Bird to do so and Bird happily surprised him.
Below, read what Lindelof thought about Bird’s choice, if Lindelof would do a Star Wars movie, and Bird’s quote when he’s reminded there’s an opening for a Star Wars Anthology film. Read More »
The 60th Anniversary of Disneyland kicks off this weekend with a ton of great events. We covered a bunch of them here, but one we didn’t was the updated World of Color.

It’s probably the most impressive nighttime event Disney does at any of their parks on either coast. For the 60th anniversary, they’ve updated the show with more of the history and future of Disney which, of course, includes Star Wars.
In including Star Wars in the new World of Color, Disney has gone one step further and included footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the show. There’s nothing new, but if seeing footage from the first two trailers projected on water with music and live physical effects sounds cool, you’re going to want to click below. There, fans who can’t make it to Disneyland to see a video of the Star Wars World of Color Segment. Read More »
