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/

Assembly of Geeks: Geeked Out Dads, Hi-Def Trauma & Ticked off Peggy kicks off with Regina, from Comic Book Noob, and her dad as they geek out on space and pop culture in celebration of Father’s Day. Then Matt, Scott and Jeff cover the news, The Killing Joke getting a one day theatrical release, new Transformers animated release, LEGO’s The Freemaker Adventures, and more.

Blast Points: Episode 26 covers some news, E3, the Palpatine tv script, LEGO’s The Force Awakens game, the Lucas museum, and then they head into their Qui-Gon-a-thon as they talk all things Qui-Gon. They cover his Jedi philosophy, his relationship with the Jedi council, his ability to live on in the Force, and how Luke is more like him than any other Jedi. Great entertaining show as always.

They cover the Rogue One pics, the Entertain Weekly character info, and take a deep dive into the Saw Gerrera reveal, the ties and connections, and the storytelling potential.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

The 602 Club: Band of Beings covers the Star Wars book Twlight Company. They don’t go into too many spoilers, so this one is pretty safe for all listeners. They talk about the book, the characters, some of the highlights, and interestingly enough, how the book actually ties into The Force Awakens. Now I read this book before I saw the movie, so I didn’t get to make any of those connections, but hearing them talk about it, I can definitely see how the book would fit in. Good episode and definitely worth checking out for Star Wars book fans.

Aggressive Negotiations: Episode 3 covers their favorite Star Wars ship designs. They talk about the design of the Millennium Falcon and the Rebel Blockade Runner, how one was almost the other and what that would have been like, the lack of whimsy with The Force Awakens‘ ships, and their favorite ship designs. Interesting episode.

Aggressive Negotiations: Episode 4 dives into a fun topic – Jedi training. They ponder about Jedi training in the sequel trilogy and what Luke’s Jedi Order would have been like. They analyse Yoda’s training, Obi-Wan’s training and even delve into the Jedi and sex. There’s lots on the Jedi philosophy and insightful observations on all the various training we’ve seen in Star Wars. Good episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

The Star Wars Art of Joe Corroney

joe-corroney-galleriaSome Star Wars artists come and go, and some stand the test of time like the talented Joe Corroney. Starting back in the West End Game days, Joe provided illustrations for the WEG sourcebooks and campaign guides. Since then, he’s worked on Topps trading cards, comics, posters and magazines. Yet one of the interesting things about Joe’s artwork is the coloring. Almost all of his work is colored by someone else, which can add a unique spin to it depending on the colorist. Everyone has a different style and it’s surprising just how much the coloring can affect the artwork.

Below you’ll find an extensive collection of Joe’s Star Wars artwork–both colored and uncolored–from his early days at WEG all the way to the present. As we countdown the days to Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, we look forward to what Joe will come up with next. Until then, enjoy the beauty that has come before it.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 171 begins with some tv discussion on Marvel versus DC (Gotham, Flash, Arrow and cross-overs) then heads into a great interview with Star Wars artist Joe Corroney. Joe and Jeremiah talk about the GI Joe movies, Transformers, Star Trek, Star Wars, the difference between art for comic covers and book covers, depicting characters, and going to cons. Lot of great topics and well worth checking out. After hearing the interview with Joe, I really hope they interview some more Star Wars artists like Chris Trevas or Dave Dorman.

Far Far Away Radio: Episode 24 reviews Star Wars Rebels and includes some generally commentary on Star Wars and Disney. I have to say, they do a great job of juggling a large number of hosts and pulling it off without it being an issue. The payoff is a diversity of viewpoints. They each offer up their favorite characters from the show so far, their hopes for what the show we’ll do, who we might see next, and more. The show also has really good production quality which is always a plus…except for the terrible (yet slightly funny) impromptu rendition of Star Wars that’s partially hummed and ab libbed by one of the hosts :)

Full of Sith: Episode LXXXVI starts with a discussion of Star Wars Rebels, digging into episode three “Droids in Distress” and sharing what did and did not work for them. Ending the show, Mike talks about going to New York Comic Con, being inducted into the 501st Legion,  and Ania getting to wear Darth Vader’s helmet. Very cool story. Also, somewhere in there they talk about the fun possibility of an Obi-Wan trilogy. While a remote possibility, it’s an intriguing idea. All in all, great show.
