Artists who have participated over the last couple years include: Shag, Attaboy, Gary Baseman, Tim Biskup, Mr. Cartoon, Buff Monster, Robbie Conal, Dalek, Bob Dob, Tristan Eaton, Ron English, Huck Gee, Mike Giant, Frank Kozik, Joe Ledbetter, Mars-1, Estevan Oriol, Alex Pardee, Jeff Soto, Damon Soule, Usugrow, Amanda Visell, Gary Taxali and many, many more. All 100 helmets will be on display in Los Angeles from June 11th – 20th with the show wrapping up and heading to Freeman’s Auction House for display from July 5th to the 9th, where they’ll be made available for purchase to the general public on the 10th.. The Vader Project has just released a catalog showcasing each helmet, some select pieces from the show and spreads from the book can be seen below.
