The Art of Princess Leia Tribute

You will know Craig Drake is a name synonymous with MilnersBlog, as I’m such a massive fan of his Patrick Nagel ‘Pop Culture’ style of visualisation and stunning palette of Geekologie inspired art, which firmly embraces film culture. But there’s one film character he’s featured more than any other, the late Carrie Fisher’s Star Wars character Princess Leia, which he respectfully showcased on his Facebook page after her passing.

Such a fitting tribute to the passing of Carrie Fisher who once said “No matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.” The Star Wars world lost another star with her passing.

Craig Drake’s fitting homage for his former employee, Lucasfilm shows no sign of abating with his recently released work.

And some up-and-coming work which I’m sure we’ll see at Star Wars Celebration 2017.

I’ve also stumbled across some of his classic ‘early’ geekologie inspired Star Wars art.

Craig Drake returns to his Star Wars roots with this classic piece of  mondo art of the AT-AT Walker from The Empire Strikes Back, which rumour has it will return with force in the new Rogue One ‘A Star Wars Story’ in December this year.
