With the announcement of the first Star Wars spinoff film, Rogue One, in early March, the internet is awash in Star Wars excitement.

"These works grow from my personal love for abstract painting, pixelation, and classic things," Lister told Vox. "I like to work with subjects that hold a collective familiarity. I take the original idea and deconstruct it, then rebuild it with an 8-bit-inspired visual language."

Lister has a limited number of prints for sale over at his website.
