One of my favorite aspects of being a Star Wars super fan is the fandom itself. I love talking about Star Wars with Nick on our Star Wars Time Show podcast. I love taking pictures of Star Wars toys on Instagram, as well as seeing other creations from like minded fans on that platform. I also love playing Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes and bullshitting with my guild on Discord and in the game’s chat. As I said, being a Star Wars fan has brought me much joy as I get to appreciate it with other super fans.

Although, I have to say my absolute favorite genre of Star Wars fandom is the fan art that comes out of it. For years I’ve been sharing some of my favorite finds over on Entertainment Buddha, but now I’ve started to shift the Star Wars fan art shares over here.

With that being said, I want to introduce all of you to one of my personal favorite Star Wars fan artists, who should totally be working for Disney and Lucasfilm at this point in time, and this awesome fan is Darren Tibbles. This dude’s art style is mesmerizing, and some of his Star Wars animated projects will lead you to believe that he’s already being paid millions of dollars to create Star Wars awesome for the Mouse.

His art is super stylized with an edge. I’d say he dabbles in an Anime aesthetic for his animations, but he also does some awesome Chibi-style art that is less edgy. He does standard Star Wars art too. I’m telling you, the man is a Star Wars fan artist master and should be appreciated by more people than he already is.

This is why I wanted to write this piece on him, so please check out the work I’ve embedded here, but you should also check him out on DeviantArt, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube. You will not be disappointed, and you’re welcome.

“There’s always time for Star Wars Time!”
