This release just might break the internetz today. Olly Moss takes on all 3 of the original Star Wars movies.
The new posters show colorful silhouettes of C-3PO, Darth Vader and Boba Fett that are filled in with detailed imagery from Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. To create original artwork for such rabidly adored films was daunting, Moss said, especially since so many of the visuals are already iconic.
"It was so intimidating!" the artist told Wired.com in an e-mail interview. "There is such a wealth of great Star Wars art out there already, from paid professionals and from enthusiastic fans. I suppose my main aim was to make a set of Star Wars posters that were a little different from what people are used to seeing from the franchise, but still retained that essential Star Wars feel. I started by re-watching the original movies with a sketchbook on my lap, and just sort of went from there."
Still, there was no backing away from the challenge. "If you're as big a nerd as I am, you just can't say no to Star Wars," Moss said.
Each of the posters are 24 x 36 inches with an edition of 400 and will be sold separately. With only two more posters to be released in the Star Wars series it will be an epic ending to the series.
Olly will be selling a limited amount on Weds Dec 23. Stay tuned for details
