Everyone needs an obsession; I seem to collect them. Some of them turn into great skills for use in the real world, be it for designing, programming or people management. Others have less real world impact, and this obsession is one of those.
Since 2010 I've been writing essays and editing videos to uncover and map the many sources of inspiration that came together under the hand of George Lucas and his amazing crew, in the creation of Star Wars.
While initially meant to be an ebook in 2013 I began publishing the essays and articles as a website, which I occasionally return to when I need to flow some creative juices not otherwise tapped by my day-job.
Along the way I created the following workprint of Star Wars intermixed with some of its sources as a way for me to work through some of the inspirations and influences I encountered along the way.
