This one was a lot of work, but something I always wanted to do. I love Art Nouveau, I love the poster art of Alphonse Mucha, and my DNA has "Star Wars" written on it.
One of the MAIN reasons I did this, however, was timing. C4 was the big 30th anniversary convention for SW, and I guessed that a lotof the other invited artists would do Episode 4 prints, especially the very popular "Big Head Montage". I wanted to steer as far clear of that as possible, then.
I also came home with leftover Han Solo prints I did for C3 the year before, and I learned my lesson. I promised myself: "If this happens again, I'm gonna do chicks or stormtroopers". Slave Leia is one of the major signposts of the cultural landscape that is the affect of Star Wars on popular culture, so..... there you go.
This is one of the few pieces of mine that I have framed and hanging in my home. We got the most ostentatious Victorian-era framejob I could find, and it looks like a real antique!
This so amazing, I'm such a huge fan of Mucha and Art Nuveau, I have several prints on my walls - and I grew up with Star Wars, so as many said already: Perfect Match for me.
And I can't put in word how I would love to be able to buy this print (or get a high-res file to do it myself) - seriously, this could make so much money I think!
More than 10 years passed, really no chance for reissuing?
I was wondering if you knew that an Australian brand called Black Milk is selling the print on a dress without even crediting you?
It pains me to see your beautiful artwork being sold for someone else profit and without even crediting you!
Do you think maybe you could do a second print run since ThinkGeek is promoting the beach towel right now? Please oh please oh please.
