Fan Artist Fuses Two Unlikely Cultures

Artist David Creighton-Pester has combined to unlikely fandoms in this collection of sports team logos styled after the Star Wars cast. While many of them of them revolve around groan-worthy puns (Tuscan City Raiders and Darkside Emperors come to mind), they should all bring a chuckle to fans and non-fans alike.

The interesting thing about these designs is how they buck the stereotype for sports culture and geek culture to remain worlds apart, saying that it's okay to be a fan of both, and that they don't have to be mutually exclusive.

Personally, I'm just waiting for a college somewhere to make one of these teams official. If anyone wants to jump on that, prints of all these teams are available at Society6.

Implications - Like I stated above, it’s a fusion of two subcultures previously thought incompatible. Stats for Star Wars Sports Teams Trending: Older & Chilly
