The ever talented Star Wars fan artist, Darren Tibbles, is no longer just a fan artist thanks to a new project he revealed that he’s been working on.
Apparently, Mr. Tibbles was commissioned by the official Lucasfilm licensing team to work on designs for a new line of Star Wars Ooshies. Ooshies are very stylized looking pencil toppers that feature the chibi aesthetic, so they have large heads and smaller bodies. Darren shared a shot of a Star Wars Ooshies pack, as well as a closeup of the art he did for the packaging, which you can check out below.
While I don’t personally collect Ooshies, I definitely appreciate their visual design, because I myself am a huge chibi-art type of guy. Hell, I had a sever Funko Pop addiction at one point in time if that tells you anything about what I like in terms of art styles and designs. I’m just glad I’ve been able to limit the Pops to just Star Wars now, otherwise, I may have had to find a new home.
Star Wars Ooshies should be hitting retail outlets soon.
