Artist transports Star Wars characters into feudal Japan

Star Wars is a patchwork of historical cues and myths from around the world. Fantasy artist Clinton Felker has explored this concept by creating a series of colorful works that transport characters from the Star Warsiverse into a neon-drenched feudal Japan.

In this vibrant, detailed alternate history mash-up, lightsabers and blaster rifles give way to to samurai katana and kabuto.

Feudal-era Darth Vader will not accept any uprisings against Daimyo Palpatine.

We've included some of our favorites below, but you can find more at Felker's website. His art is avaialble for purchase in print and T-shirt form.
