Galactic Empire

The spaceship and sun symbol of the Galactic Empire
Isaac Asimov is one of my favourite authors. He has an amazing array of stories spread over something like twenty or thirty thousand years of human history. A large chunk of that time is taken up by the rule of the Galactic Empire, which spread throughout the stars, and then degenerated until it could only collapse and be replaced by the Foundation. The emblem is described by Asimov as a cigar shaped spaceship in front of a stylised sun, so it leaves a little room for imagination in there still. I wanted to go for a fifties style spaceship as thats when most of his stories were written and this is the end result.

If you would like to own something with this artwork on it, head over to Redbubble or Society6 and choose from a range of T-shirts, iPhone cases, stickers, prints and other assorted goodies. See all the details on the Doodle Dojo Store.

Licensed to Rebel

No sleep 'til Endor
Sci-fi and music in the same illustration. When I first heard the Beastie Boys I was very small indeed, much like when I first saw Star Wars. They left a bit of an impression, especially the iconic cover of Licensed to Ill. I'm not really sure how this mash-up made it into my head, but once it was there I had to see what it would look like. The Rebels and the Beasties are both pretty anti-establishment and there is no better symbol of the Star Wars establishment than the Star destroyer. Unless maybe its the Death Star, but then what would the destroyer have to crash into?

If you think it's time to get ill then you might want to get over to Redbubble or Society6 and check out some of the T-shirts, iPhone cases, posters and stickers available. All the details are on the Doodle Dojo Store.

Loki Logo

Loki - Great for mischief, mayhem and er, building things?!
A nice simple one this time. Loki is the mischievous god from Norse mythology who likes to cause a bit of trouble now and then. Just like those plastic building blocks that look so innocent during the day but at night seem to be made of razor blades and always find their way directly under your feet.

If you like the looks of this design you can get hold of it at Redbubble and Society6 on T-shirts, prints, iPhone cases and more. Find all the details on the Doodle Dojo Store
