Recently, as part of the "Hot and Nerdy" film series hosted at the Blue Starlite Drive in Austin, Texas, Austin Books and Comics held a screening of the very fun film, "Fanboys", which if you haven't seen it is about a group of friends on an amazing Star Wars journey. To commemorate the event, they commissioned artist Tim Doyle to make a print, and boy did he do an amazing job!
Tim created this amazing piece, which should be titled "Leia Leading the Rebels", as it's based on the famous painting be Eugene Delacroix titled, "Liberty Leading the People" that helped symbolized the July Revolution of 1830 in France and is one of the most iconic paintings in the world.
The print is 18" x 24", originally cost $40 and is limited to 325 pieces. There is also a variant blue "Night Falls on the Federation" edition limited to 150 pieces that originally cost $60. Both editions, which were originally sold at the screening with the few remaining pieces sold online afterwards, are completely sold out. So ebay might be your best bet to pick one of these up if you're desperate for one.
I asked Tim if he thought about having Leia be topless in the piece and he said, "I really debated drawing her topless. It would fit the reference, but then I think people wouldn't want to hang it up. I thought about doing a topless variant, but ran out of time. These are the things that keep me up at night, decisions like this."
The imminently talented Tom Spina just let us know about another amazing Star Wars project he recently worked on. Tom and his team - led by artist Mike Thomas on this project - tackled restoring an original Ewok mask for "Return of the Jedi".
The mask was in need of some serious love as it had some large tears and had grown fragile and unstable in certain places. To see before and after pictures of the restoration process and get more details about the project, head over to Tom's website, Tom Spina Designs.

Imagine if Yoda and Kermit, both "Muppets", knew each other because they lived in the same swamp.
That's exactly what Peter De Seve did when putting together this piece for the amazing book titled "Star Wars Visions" that was put together by Lucasfilm, Abrams and ACME Archives. George Lucas hand-picked more than 100 of the best artists on the planet to contribute art pieces for this impressive work.
