Here’s what Kevin Tong said about the print:

“My print is called ‘A Linch Pin Droid’ and it’s an exploded view of R2-D2, my favorite character in the Star Wars Trilogy. For this print, I made certain that I stayed true to the Original Trilogy and spent months watching and pausing it. Although this print is largely technical, I was hoping that by showing R2-D2′s individual tools and components all spread out, people can reflect on the moments in the Trilogy where he used those devices to save the day and the galaxy.”

“Super Sabacc Challenge” Art by Nathan Hamill

StarWars.com Team | November 18, 2010

Art by Nathan Hamill

Artist Nathan Hamill recently blogged about a cool piece of custom Star Wars game-themed art he made for So Analog’s “10-DOH!” Show. StarWars.com chats with Nathan about his art piece and how it came about.

What is the So Analog’s “10-DOH!” Show all about?

So Analog is a series of resin figures made by Squid Kids Inc. that focus on “old tech items that everyone used to use,” such as video game cartridges, floppy discs and cassettes tapes. They asked several artists to customize these blank resins however we saw fit to be included in a show at Designer Con 2010 in Pasadena. Based on the pieces I’ve seen, I’m really looking forward to it.

What’s the backstory on your Super Sabacc Challenge art piece?

I love Nintendo. I’ve been a fan since I was five or six. The NES was a huge part of growing up for most people my age. We ate, slept and breathed these games. They permeated our psyches. I saw Tetris pieces falling from the sky and tried to arrange them correctly on the side of the school bus and school buildings. Star Wars was another childhood love so it seemed a good fit. Two great tastes…

What is it about “old school” gaming that makes it so cool?

There’s a certain charm in their design. The developers and composers had work with limitations in technology that made them extremely inventive. I enjoy modern games as well but 8-bit and 16-bit games have a purity and beautiful simplicity that I miss. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past and Super Metroid battle over the title of greatest video game of all time in a no holds barred arena in my mind. But there will never be a winner. The fight is eternal.

Here’s the most recent print “A Wretched Hive” by Martin Ansin. Regular (Copper) Ed. of 360 / Variant (Metallic Silver) Ed. of 150, 24″x36″.

Here’s what Ansin said about the print:

“I’ve always liked that scene in Reign Of Fire where these post-apocalyptic survivors re-enact Star Wars scenes for their children; in the future, the stories that we really like have become legends. For this poster I tried to do something similar, but in the opposite direction in time. I wanted to see how the cantina scene would look if it had been illustrated for an old book, if Star Wars was a traditional epic adventure sharing space with King Arthur and Beowulf. Who knows, maybe sometime in the future it will.”

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.”
