Hi guys, I'm a new user to the site and a huge star wars/vintage figure fan.
I recently stumbled across this website featuring art from a Joe Simpson, who is inspired by nostalgia and the memories evoked by childhood imagery.

He creates these amazing Figurine Paintings – the collection is, in his own words ‘a love letter to the action figures of the 1970s, 80s & 90s.’ These artworks are sure to stir up any memories in fans of a certain age, as well as prove interesting to Star Wars aficionados in general.

He's made paintings of the Yoda, Luke, Leia and Wampa figures from the Palitoy range.

Hope you guys enjoy!

They say that you can't put a price on art... Joe Simpson certainly has though :lol:
In all seriousness, very beautiful paintings, personally I like the paint rub on Luke's toe, really adds some life to it
