It’s been months since we were first introduced to Poe “one-hell-of-a-pilot” Dameron, and we still have weeks until we can relive the moments we (along with Finn, probs) fell in love with the resistance pilot with the tousled hair, so I think it’s time to turn to some fanart to help tie us over in the meanwhile.
Illustrator Darius did a whole series of TFA characters you should check out, but obviously I want to highlight his Poe, which I especially love for the warm and heroic lighting.
Ever since Molly Ostertag posted this on Christmas, I have decided that every year BB-8 wraps itself up on the anniversary of being given to Poe (a gift from his mom, pilot Shara Bey, on the day he got his pilot’s license, right?), and they spend the day joyriding together.
If Episode 8 doesn’t include a scene of Poe carrying BB-8 like a backback like Kotteri has imagined, then, well—I bet it’ll still be a great Star Wars movie, just not the greatest.
I love fanart that incorporates the Rebel Alliance/Resistance symbol, and Paul Duffield’s “I’m about to leave on a very important mission for General Leia” Poe Dameron is great on every level.
As a final bonus, brighten up your day every time you check your phone with a Poe wallpaper collage.
