Artist Shows The Tender Side Of The 'Star Wars' Universe, And It's Magical

"Some people like playing golf. I like making pictures of Darth Vader sip tea."

A long time ago, in a galaxy lovingly, huggingly close ...

The "Star Wars" movies only show a few sides to your favorite characters. But what about when they're not saving (or conquering) the galaxy? How do they unwind? What's a Stormtrooper's day off like? Where does Darth Vader go on a date?

Artist Kyle Hagey digitally crafted various "Star Wars" characters in a more light-hearted environment. When The Huffington Post asked what inspired him, Hagey said, "I'm not sure. It's just a weird hobby I have. Some people like playing golf. I like making pictures of Darth Vader sip tea."

  • A trade federation droid waits seductively for the bounty hunter droid IG88 to return home.
    "Honey, I'm 01101000 01101111 01101101 01100101!"
    "Honey, I'm 01101000 01101111 01101101 01100101!"
  • Yoda doesn't have time for your loud neighbor bullsh*t.
    "Hungover I am."
    "Hungover I am."
