Runnemede, NJ- Dynamic Forces Inc. today announced the first in a series of limited edition, high-end lithographs that the company will be producing featuring art from the Star Wars universe.
"My love of all things Star Wars runs as deep as my love of comics," said DF President Nick Barrucci. "To work with Lucasfilm and all of these great artists on our Star Wars lithograph line is truly a dream come true."
DF is kicking things off with a special piece by the Brothers Hildebrandt that is sort of a "lost" image from the marketing of the first movie in 1977. This will be the first in a series of lithos that will include some of the best science-fiction artists of all time, including Ken Kelly, Dave Dorman and others.
The action, adventure and eye-popping visuals of the Star Wars films are now captured in a limited edition lithograph- the first in an all-new series -- from the first Star Wars movie. It will be released in August and is available for pre-order now.
The art is the initial painting of the "comic" version of the famous Star Wars theatrical poster from 1977. After it was done on a rush basis˜Greg and the late Tim Hildebrandt turned it around in just 36 hours˜the twins dropped it off at a New York agency, but were told that Lucasfilm wanted the addition of R2-D2 and C-3PO. But the poster deadline was that day. The brothers left the agency, found the closest art store, picked up paint and brushes, returned and painted in the droids.
Now, an original version, without the droids has been found and turned into an 18" x 24" lithograph printed on fine, high-quality paper stock. It will sell for $49.99.http://www.dynamicforces.com/htmlfiles/p-C105211.html
