Vintage Star Wars travel posters

**UPDATE** click here!
Well, I've been sitting on these for two years now (that is far too long) and since then I've seen every kind of Star Wars mash up imaginable (but hope to see some more creative ones in the future). I say "since then" because I really wasn't looking too hard before I completed these.

They are very much inspired by some of the vintage travel posters of the early 20th century.

These were done in association with a website in order to have them printed. That website is still working on making that a reality. I'm crossing my fingers for a quick resolve. So, for now they are just here to look at.

I decided I couldn't wait any longer to show them. With the release of the art book Star Wars: Visions, and everyone else sharing their awesome Star Wars inspired art, I wanted to throw mine into the web mix.

There are eight in all and you can see all of them together here.










If interested and you want to know when they will be available, please leave a comment and I'll get back to you. Thanks.

  2. I prefer vintage/retro style on "modern" film prints but you've taken it to the next level doing these as travel posters! Hope these can be produced as prints someday! Definitely interested. Thanks for sharing!

  17. a parsec is a unit of distance, not time. kessel run poster fail.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hi Ryan,
    The fine print (which can't been read at this size) at the bottom left states this exact thing. It reads and reflects the '*' after parsecs*, "*A parsec is a measure of distance, not time. Round trip flight is 24 parsecs."

    And thanks to everyone else for the comments. I'll be sure to post again and let each of you know when they become availabe.

    A poster showing all eight together would be the version I'd most want. Here's a mock-up of what it would probably look like framed and matted in real life - http://grab.by/77Mt
