Art Nouveau Slave Leia by AdamHughes Art Nouveau Slave Leia by AdamHughes
Limited Print for Star Wars Celebrations 4.

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!

Please please please do another print run. I want to buy this so badly.

Do you have prints of this for sale?

I love this piece, and I don't know if many folk have both it and the Gentle Giant dartboard case it was made into. I bought two back in the day, one for me, one for my nephew who I'd hoped would be as big a SW fan as I am, (I say, writing this in my SW room). Unfortunately, he's never taken the slightest interest in SW, which I can't fathom. No accounting for taste. Still, I love it and think you created a masterpiece Adam.

Absolutely love the Art Nouveau vibe of this. I so wish I could buy a print of it to frame.

I have this print but never framed it yet.  It's absolutely beautiful in person.  I don't think I could ever let it go.

Please do another print run - stunning piece - can't find it for sale by anyone anywhere :(
becca80 Featured By Owner Edited Feb 28, 2015
I have so much "want" on this. No, I have so much (or maybe Mucha) NEED on this.

Is there any way you can do another print run? Please?

I loved this print. Traces, colors... great job.

Will a reprint of this poster be made available?  I can't find and original one for sale and I just love your artwork.  I did find the one you donated for the auction with Leia hand drawn along the bottom - awesome.  Thanks

I love this artwork, it's so pretty!

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!
ABrownSparrow Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Where can I buy a print of this?? Oh I really, really want one!! :D
ABrownSparrow Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Found *one* on the ebays. It's up to $405. T_T 

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.

I would love to have a poster of this...  It's amazing!
CheeseburgerTom Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2014
I'm sure Leia thought it shameful enough to be Jabba's slave, but being reduced to a mere tourist attraction must be unbearable.
Beccamcjohnson Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2013
I hope black milk got permission to use your artwork on their clothes

Your wonderful artwork has been featured here! :heart:

Ah when I saw this on a friend's wall I fell in love. Alas it's so hard to find now. I shall keep searching, but thankyou for creating such a work of art :)

Hopefully blackmilk has rights to be using this on a dress? .-.
meapanda Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2013
i just find this soo stunning, the attention to detail is mind boggling. i love the care you put into each piece, it really shows in all the tiny detail. i think your work sits in this perfect balance of realistic and stylised form.
vivyhan Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2013
I just saw that Black Milk is selling a dress with this exact piece on it
I hope you got some deal out of it... otherwise it will forever tarnish my view on BM if they stole it
Delaney-M Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I have the Black Milk Dress with this illustration! Love it!
neomeruru Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Found this at my local gaming store! [link] I immediately recognized the artwork and did a little dance. I didn't know you got it officially licensed! I mean, it looked like official Lucasfilm merch. That's pretty cool.

(Or maybe you didn't, and Lucasfilm just skunked your art, and that sucks! Either way, I thought I'd let you know I saw it out in the wild!)
antonaros Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013
Blackmilk Clothing is using this as art on a dress. I didn't see you credited, so I want to make sure this is legitimate, or at least that you know about it!

I noticed this too. Here's the link: [link]

This is great work. What font did you use for the "Alderaan" title?

No way we could have a print in DA? This is awesome! Me and my girlfriend want it hanging on the wall.

Bro why don't you make shirts of this one! Would be great love it!
jcb0920 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2012
Hehe...just curious, still got those Han Solo prints around the house? I've been scouring the web looking for a site where I could pick up ANY Star Wars print you've done and so luck. I'd sell grandma down the river for the Art Nouveau Leia but sounds like the secondary market is going to be my best bet (for the print, not for selling grandma). Any thoughts on where to score one of your SW prints? Thanks so much Adam. Amazing work!!!
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2012
I'm sorry; we don't have any of the STAR WARS prints I did for the Celebrations shows. The secondary market is your only source, I'm afraid.
azulita1 Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2012
Wandering if you have a print to sell?
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2012
Sorry; this print was sold only at STAR WARS Celebrations, it was an exclusive. It's long since sold out.

Great seeing this featured in IMAGINEFAX!! It captures wittily the look and feel of the genre and is just so Mucha-esque! Bravo! :ahoy:
