Matt Taylor “Star Wars: A New Hope”

Taylor’s take on A New Hope really has that classic feel while emphasizing aspects of the story, such as Vader’s looming presence and grip over the galaxy.

The Art of Star Wars : Thrawn

One of the most cunning and ruthless warrior in the history of the Galactic Empire, Grand Admiral Thrawn is one of the most captivating characters in the Star Wars universe. From his introduction in the best-selling author Timothy Zahn’s classic Heir to the Empire through his continuing adventures in Dark Force Rising, The Last Command and beyond. Grand Admiral Thrawn has earned an iconic status among the greatest Star Wars villains. But Thrawn’s origins and the story of his rise in the Imperial ranks have remained mysterious. Now, in Star Wars: Thrawn, Timothy Zahn chronicles the fateful events that launched the blue-skinned, red.eyed master of military strategy and lethal warfare into the highest realms of power-and infamy.

But this isn’t a review of Timothy Zahn’s ambitious book, but the creative work that went on behind the scenes creating the iconic artwork of the book by Two Dots, a creative studio dedicated to the entertainment industry, and their client…LucasFilm.

PARADISE begins in Hell…

One of my favourite film posters this year is the intense new poster for Alien: Covenant! Unlike most of the other lazy posters that the studios release these days, they’ve actually put some artistic effort into this. The first two which had a fairly ominous and simplistic look to them, but this new variant  by 20th Century Fox features a full view of the “Protomorph” Xenomorph surrounded by what look to be dead Engineer bodies and other Aliens! The background looks very similar to Alien hive walls as well, and interestingly teases the Alien Queen hidden in the background.

Ultimately this poster seems to depict a collage of chaos, showing the overthrow of the Engineer society by the infection of the hostile Alien race, something which might tie back to the finale of the Alien: Covenant | Prologue: The Crossing, showing Michael release the pods onto the Engineers homeworld…see below

The latest poster is quite tame in comparison, very Ripley Alien esque.
