OK, so we all love stormtroopers from Star Wars, right? I mean, let's just get that out of the way now, because I don't see that being much of a question, and more of a statement of fact. We love that they can't hit the broad side of a barn with their blasters, and we love them even more when they smack their heads into doors. And now, thanks to Joe Stone, I love stormtroopers when they're doing things other than trooping in storms.
The project is titled Drawntroopers. These are traditional Star Wars stormtroopers, but Joe replaced the "Storm" with another descriptor that plays on the name. As he puts it:
An Instagram project I did where I drew visual puns about the Stormtroopers from Star Wars. Originally I just spent one Sunday afternoon drawing a few of them, but then I kept thinking of more and more stupid puns and then people saw the first few and kept suggesting new ones and it sort of became a whole thing.
Whatever he calls it, I love it. Just like I love all things stormtrooper and Star Wars.
