Feel the sunken, scheming eyes of the Commander of the Death Star, follow YOU around the room, knowing full well that his pointed finger doesn’t allow failure.

The original recruitment poster, by Alfred Leete, is considered to be one of the most iconic images of World War I, an image that has been parodied countless times since its original publication. If Leete, a British graphic artist, whose style was known for its “humour and keen observation of the everyday,” were alive today, I’m hoping he would give this version his tick of approval.

All work is created with Adobe Photoshop and Wacom tablet.
