52 Weeks of Star Wars is a weekly photo project starring various characters from the Star Wars franchise. This photo project is a continuation of sorts to my original series; 365 Days of Clones, specially my Cloned Photos mini-series.
Today marks the Fiftieth creation in this year long adventure. As the title suggests; 52 Weeks of Star Wars, one new photo will be taken, edited and added to the running total every Sunday. The twist is that all the images will be a recreation of sorts of a previous image. Some; like today, will be album covers, some will be film posters and others will be famous or well known images of the 20th century. There may even be the odd recreation of a painting!
“God Save The Queen: Fett Pistols” is my recreation of the Sex Pistols’ second single called; God Save The Queen and was originally released during Queen Elizabeth II’s Silver Jubilee in 1977.
Some of you may be wondering why I chose to create a Cloned Photo base upon this particular album cover. This one seems a little obvious, Queen Elizabeth has simply been replaced by Queen Amidala. The hard part here was figuring out what the name of the band would be. The Max Rebo Band and Cantina Band came to mind, but they were from the original trilogy and I didn’t like how that felt. I ended up with “Fett Pistols” as it sounded similar to “Sex Pistols” and I figured only the Fetts (Jango and Boba) would have the guts to pull a stunt like the Sex Pistols had.
