Star Wars
From Star Wars Illustrated: A New Hope (Topps, 2013)
Oil on birch panel
Earlier this year, I was contacted by Topps to do a painting for their new "Star Wars Illustrated" card set.

The assignment was to reinterpret the original 1977 posters by artists Tom Jung and the Brothers Hildebrandt. In doing so, I wanted to portray a more film-accurate appearance while still recreating some of the original's stylized qualities through practical means.
