Toys + Art = Win

Sometimes toys are cheap.  Sometimes merchandise is just there to get cash.  Sometimes toys can be turned into art.  This is one of those times.  Here is a one of the photos from Rather Childish.

As you can see from the level of awesome that this is, the photographer knows what they're doing.  Unsurprisingly, as Death*Star, we are fans of Star Wars toys.  We came across these images while looking for some artwork for our new album.  We thought we would share.  There are dozens of photos on the wordpress blog.  The artist obviously has quite the stock of varied and rich Star Wars toys.  They focus on both the quality of the toy and the emotion of the scene.  Not simply re-creating movie shots but actually utilizing photography building blocks to make this all feel less like a fanboy showing off their collection and more like a photographer taking a new spin on nostalgia and geekiness. The photos and link at the top both bring you to the site where you will spend at least a little time enjoying the informative blurbs about each photo as well.  Now, go support this guy!
