So here’s something South Korean artist Kim Jung Gi did – he combined elements of the Star Wars movies with aspects of feudal Japan.
This is, of course, an inspired combination. As you may know, Star Wars was in part inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s samurai movies, so mashing the two together is something of a no brainer. What’s more impressive, though, is the talent that made it happen.
See, Kim studied art at Dong-Eui University in Busan before serving two years in the South Korean army. Between those two disciplines he developed a very keen eye and a knack for memorization—skills he put to use in October when he spent three hours drawing this beautiful blending of worlds.
Kim’s work is absolutely stunning. And, if you continue on, you can watch the video of him drawing this amazing piece from memory.
