If you’ve been thinking about acquiring some Star Wars art for your walls, there are a number of pre-orders now available from well-known artists. Whether you lean toward fine art or comic book styles, here are some great options to decorate your Geekcave.
Scheduled for release this month, but still accepting pre-orders is a reasonably affordable fine art giclee print by Star Wars artist Brian Rood. Limited to 95 pieces – Wood’s piece, “Boba Fett Is On The Hunt,” is a stunning watercolor-style on canvas that measures 19 inches tall by 13 inches wide. The print features Boba Fett is an iconic posture, elegantly executed to fit the décor of any room and priced only at $125.
If you consider yourself a hardcore fan of Dark Horse’s, “Star Wars,” then you’ll want to check out the limited edition “Star Wars” #2 print of Alex Ross’ epic cover, featuring Slave I in pursuit of Millennium Falcon, and floating heads of Luke Skywalker, Wedge, Princess Leia and four X-Wing fighters. Fans should especially note, the canvas is signed by Alex Ross and limited to 77 hand-numbered pieces. This piece is priced at $195 and slated to ship this month.
In November, a limited edition giclee print by artist William Silvers, entitled “A Good Day To Die,” will be released through Entertainment Earth for $345. The canvas measures 26 inches tall by 13 inches wide and is signed by the artist – restricted to only 77 copies. According to the artist, this piece pays homage to the bounty hunters fate as seen in Return of the Jedi.
Coming this July are some new pieces of fine art by artist Christian Waggoner. These 30-inch by 24-inch giclee canvases are limited to 25 pieces and carry hefty price tags up toward $1,250, but are signed and absolutely breathtaking.
You may be familiar with Waggoner’s work from his Boba Fett painting that pans closely to his T-visor, with the Carbonite slab of Han Solo reflecting off his helmet.
This new painting is similar in style, with a reflection of Lando Carlissian negotiating with Darth Vader on Cloud City.
A more affordable option is artist Raymond Swanland’s canvas giclee, limited to 95 available pieces, is 30-inch by 20-inch and features Boba Fett standing atop a building, blaster in hand as he keeps an eye out for his prey. This is also signed by the artist and is going for $395 – available in July.
These limited edition pieces are available for pre-order through Entertainment Earth.
While a little expensive, the artwork by these two artist would look great in any Geekcave or collection gallery.
