This is one of the coolest art collections I've come across in a long time. I've been extremely excited about sharing these you so I hope you like them. This is a collection of art from several different artists that combine the awesomeness of Star Wars with horror themes! I thought about sitting on these until Halloween, but obviously I just couldn't contain myself. These are all part of a art show called Death Star Art Show.
Check out the collection of art below and tell us what you think! The image above is called Past the First Marker by Chris Impink.

What do you get when you mix the final scene of Texas Chainsaw Massacre with the double cross of Empire Strikes Back? LANDOFACE! By Nick Borkowicz
Here we have two great portraits by Nick Borkowicz. The Emporer’s Monster and Grand Mummy Tarkin. Both are sharpie and acrylic paints mixed with photoshop.
Here's some information from the press release:
Artists from all over the Baltimore area have been sharpening their lightsabers in the abandoned barn behind Camp Crystal Lake. Children on Elm Street have been running away from a Wookie in their dreams; they say if he catches you, you wake up with your arms torn off. There's this hologram on an old R2 unit, anyone who watches it dies in seven days. All of this portends one thing, shambling from its stygian depths, over the Mountains of Madness, the DEATHSTAR rises.
Charmed Life Studio is doing the mash, we're doing monster mash-up. Darl Gnau and Nick "Ghostfreehood" Borkowicz have invited more than two dozen visual artists to combine Star Wars and horror. If you like art, if you like horror, if you like Star Wars, you should be there. October 7th, from 6:00 PM till 10:00 PM. There will also be music from Star Wars interpreted by Ben Frock's Love Unit.
