Endor: Worth Fighting For!

Wow. Just wow. I still can't believe this has/is happening. The idea that I am doing a fully licensed piece of art work for STAR WARS blows my mind!? When Acme Archives approached me early this year about doing a piece of Star Wars artwork in conjunction with "May the 4th Be With You" and Star Wars Weekends at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida I was blown away. 2 of my favorite things in the world; Walt Disney World AND Star Wars, sign me up!

The concept I came up with was kind of a travel/propaganda style poster for Endor featuring everyone's favorite (and loveable) furry forest creatures; Ewoks! Here is a glimpse at my actual process for "Endor: Worth Fighting For!" from thumbnail to final-ish sketch to color tests to final!

Anyways, the print will go on sale from Acme Archives on their website Dark Ink Art starting May 4th at 1:00pm PST. After that, the print will go on sale exclusively at Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World starting May 16th for Star Wars Weekends and Disney World's website. I am not sure about how many prints will be made available/set aside for the Dark Ink Art website and Disney World so you will have to follow Acme Archives on Twitter for more info. I do know that the print will be a limited edition run of 150 total, just not sure of the breakdown yet. Here are the rest of the print details:

Title: Endor: Worth Fighting For!

Oh and one final note. Star Wars Weekends starts Friday May 16 and runs through Sunday, June 15, 2014 (obviously only happens on the weekends) at Disney's Hollywood Studios. I will actually be attending during the first weekend to take in some of the festivities as I've never been to SW Weekends. If you find yourself in the parks that weekend be sure to tweet me and maybe say hello! I love meeting fans! For all the info about Star Wars Weekends, please visit Disney's website!

Wow.
Star Wars.
Disney World.
Just breathe...
