‘Star Wars’ Portraits capture the characters during their moments of relaxation

Vader Tea Time.

I always pegged Vader as enjoying some tea. When he’s not abandoning his children, committing genocide, or having an asthma attack. Now thanks to these portraits I can see him partaking in such a moment of calm! Plus, these portraits feature  bits of momentary repose for some of the other characters from the Star Wars universe.
