Lucasfilm asked artists, comic book creators, toy designers, and celebrity fans to transform blank Mighty Muggs into custom art depicting their favorite characters, creatures, ships and scenes from the Star Wars saga in the project, The Empire Muggs Back. Then collectors and fans can bid on all the art pieces which are auctioned by The Make-A-Wish Foundation. The auction ends Aug. 14, 2009.
Bonnie at StarWars.com has some great interviews online with the artists including “The Clone Wars” director Dave Filoni, “Fanboys”, Go-Go’s guitarist Jane Wiedlin, model makers from “Robot Chicken,” underground/graffiti artist JAKe and lots more.
