Collectors and fans alike have a chance to own one-of-a-kind “Star Wars” art pieces while giving to a good cause with The Empire Muggs Back. Lucasfilm asked artists, comic book creators, toy designers, and celebrity fans to get out their markers, paint brushes and glue guns and transform blank Mighty Muggs (donated by Hasbro) into custom art depicting their favorite characters, creatures, ships and scenes from the “Star Wars” saga.
Some of the many artists participating include “The Clone Wars” director Dave Filoni, “Fanboys” director Kyle Newman, actress Jaime King, Go-Go’s guitarist Jane Wiedlin, model makers from “Robot Chicken,” graffiti artist Urban Medium, and tattoo artist Karen Roze.
All art pieces are auctioned by The Make-A-Wish Foundation. The auction ends Aug. 14, 2009.
