The Office Strikes Back

The Office Strikes Back Jason SlyI love it when artists go all epic in their love for The Office.

Take the case of Jason Sly, who created his masterpiece based on the Star Wars poster for The Empire Strikes Back. What’s particularly interesting is that he details the whole process, from initial concept to final version, in his blog. Go check it out! (His blog also has the full-sized version of the illustration.)

Jason tells OfficeTally:
“I don’t know what prompted it exactly, but one night in 2008 either after watching an episode of the show or seeing the poster for “The Empire Strikes Back,” I had a flash of an Office-Star Wars mashup poster. Jim and Pam replacing Han and Leia and Dwight looking villainous in the background instead of Vader, it seemed so perfect! Toyed around with the composition and who all to include for awhile… with a year long hiatus from working on it in the middle… and finally we have the finished poster.”

  1. Too cool for words. I just wish he left the awesome logo on
    the finished version, but I do dig the building as a replacement.
    The Empaper Strikes Back?

  2. Move over Hans & princess Leia, Princess Pam and Jedi Jim are here! Oh what I wouldn’t do to see a remake of Star Wars with Jenna Fischer as princess leia!!!! The force would so be with me! Creed as the wise Obi Wan Kinobi, Michael has already mastered the Yoda voice with Holly, and Dwight was already a sith lord in a halloween episode! Even though Phyllis thought he was a monk:) What a great artist combining two of my all time favorites.

  3. Nice! What an awesome poster! MY love for the office is
    truly only surpassed by my love for Star Wars and I never expected
    the two to come together in such a dynamic way. As a DISH employee
    I got that TV Everywhere App the day it dropped and have been
    watching the last couple eps on my phone on my lunch break. Anyone
    else used this App? Darth Dwight FTW!
