Star Wars artist Joe Corroney and Brian Miller will be heading to Star Wars Celebration next month and both artists have revealed their exclusive prints. Details below!

Both artists will be attending Star Wars Celebration Orlando April 13 – 16 where their artwork will be featured in the Celebration Art Show. Limited edition, officially licensed prints of the artwork are being made available exclusively for attendees as well. As artists who work on officially licensed Lucasfilm projects Joe Corroney and Brian Miller also participate in Celebration programming for the fans. Joe will be sketching Star Wars characters at Booth No. 2810 and Brian will be participating in the Star Wars Kids art program. Kids can learn how to make droids with Brian during the “Create a paper-craft BB-8″ event at Celebration.

Fans will find Joe Corroney and Brian Miller appearing at at booth no. 2810 during the event. Attendees interested in the two limited edition prints,’STAR WARS: 40 YEARS OF THE FORCE’ and ‘I REBEL’ may pre-order them starting March 15th at the links below and pick-up the prints in person at Star Wars Celebration booth no. 2810. These exclusive prints will sell-out, pre-ordering is strongly encouraged.

STAR WARS: 40 YEARS OF THE FORCE – http://bit.ly/swcoexclusive
illustration by Brian Miller
Price $60
Limited to 250 edition
Hand signed and numbered  – includes certificate of authenticity
12″ x 24″
7-color fine art silkscreen on 100# French speckle tone stock

When asked about his artwork for Celebration Miller says,’STAR WARS: 40 YEARS OF THE FORCE’ is a salute to the anniversary of the 1977 release of Star Wars. The idea was to illustrate Star Wars in a manner evocative of the time period. I love the scene where Luke Skywalker turns off the targeting computer in his X-Wing fighter and uses the Force to focus on his target. It’s symbolic of Luke truly embracing the light side of the force and beginning his journey to becoming a Jedi. In this pivotal moment Darth Vader has Luke’s X-Wing in his sights until Han Solo and Chewbacca return in the Millennium Falcon to blast the TIE Fighters. The Rebel and the scoundrel work together to destroy the Death Star and save the rebellion. It’s a timeless moment and one I am proud to have captured with this new illustration.

I REBEL – http://bit.ly/swcolimited
illustration by Joe Corroney
Price $60
Limited to 250 edition
Hand signed and numbered
Measures 18″ x 24″ inches
4-color process lithograph on 80# cover stock with satin aqueous archival finish

Joe Corroney and Brian Miller each chose to represent the Rebellion in their Star Wars Celebration exclusive illustrations titled, ‘STAR WARS: 40 YEARS OF THE FORCE’ & ‘I REBEL’. Between the two artist they have managed to capture the essence of the original Star Wars film as well as embrace the latest film in the franchise, Rogue One. Joe had this to say about his newest illustration, “I absolutely loved Rogue One, especially the character of Jyn Erso from the film. For this new print I wanted to capture the defiance of her character during one of the key action sequences on Jedha, Also, the title of the artwork is actually a quote taken from a cut scene from the film which appeared in the trailers when Jyn infamously says “I rebel”. The Star Wars saga has a great history of strong, heroic female characters that fans all over the world have looked up to and have been inspired by. I’m hoping female fans especially will really respond positively to this new art because of our own current period in history with women all over the world courageously marching and taking a stand against oppression for themselves and for the rights of others.”

Fans and collectors can view the prints for preorder at: http://masterdigitalcolor.com/2017/03/swcoexclusive/
