Here’s the most recent print “Attack Position” by artist Rich Kelly. It’s a hand-numbered, 24″ x 36″ screen print. Edition of 400. Printed by D&L Screen Printing.

Here’s what Kelly said about the print:

“When I was approached with this project, a considerable amount of artistic liberty was encouraged. After re-watching the original trilogy and observing how Chewbacca interacted with the rest of the characters, I realized that on more than one occasion he was basically used for comic relief with Han. Even during some of the battle scenes he seems to be fumbling around a bit.

As a kid, I definitely remember thinking of him as a major force to be reckoned with. Therefore, I decided I wanted to depict “Chewie” as one bad dude; kicking ass and taking names. Endor came to mind as an appropriate environment, with Chewbacca gliding down a fallen tree, about to attack a couple of unsuspecting stormtroopers.”
