Starwarsbucks Coffee aka It's a Frap! by ProlificPen Starwarsbucks Coffee aka It's a Frap! by ProlificPen
I’m sure some barista somewhere already thought of this a long time ago! But I thought I would create my own take regardless.

This parody featuring a minor Return of the Jedi character, and a Starbucks Frappuccino is at its heart a commentary on Advertising, Consumerism and internet memes. Starbucks and Star Wars, to me, represent quintessential examples of the American corporation, and an American entertainment franchise. Ad people will often use crossover campaigns with the intention that the marketing power of both brands can hopefully play off of one another and subtly influence the consumer. It’s an interesting phenomenon that seems to be growing more commonplace these days (thinking of 007 and Heineken).

The power of internet memes is also clearly becoming mainstream, and I am pretty confident they can be considered an art form by now.

This was created from scratch using an old Wacom Intuos 3 graphics tablet, and Adobe Photoshop CS5 with custom brushes.

This will be available for purchase and can be shipped anywhere in the world with PAYPAL as a huge 18” by 24” print for $10 + SH at yannidavrosart.mybigcommerce.c… shortly. Email ydavros@gmail.com to preorder.
