The Vader Project Up FOR AUCTION JULY 10!

It's no secret that the Darth Vader helmet is one of the most iconic images in pop-culture history.
It's also no secret that adding a Darth Vader helmet to ANYTHING makes it completely bad ass.
Let's try out that theory for a minute, shall we.

So, with that evidence clearly thrown in your face like a Mynock-Cream Pie from the Dark Side Bakery, let's add another ingredient to the equation: Artists.
Artists + Nothing = Artists.
Artists + Darth Vader = Bad Ass Artists.
RIght? I think so!

About 2 years ago, Dov Kelemer & Sarah Jo Marks of DKE TOYS
gathered together a HUGE roster of insanely talented artists to customize official replicas of the actual Darth Vader helmet used in Star Wars. I was lucky enough to be one of the artists picked to contribute.
Throughout the last 2 years, the collection of over 100 helmets traveled the globe, finding temporary homes at a bunch of rad locations, like the Warhol Museum in Philly, Star Wars Celebration, Comic Con, Japan, and a few art galleries. Now, after all that traveling, all 100 of them are going up for AUCTION through FREEMAN'S AUCTIONEERS IN 3 DAYS ON JULY 10!! The collection is crazy, you need to check it out. There is a really beautiful catalog (and art book more like it) for sale that features all of the helmets too:)

Anyway, here are some pics of the helmet that I made for the show, and below the pics is all of the information about the auction. Check it out if you can!
