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.

Force Awakens Character Film Posters

Check out these new Star Wars: The Force Awakens posters which Lucasfilm and Disney have just released, it’s a fantastic series of new character posters which feature Han Solo, Princess Leia, Rey, Finn, and Kylo Ren. The one of Han Solo with the old man stubble is so authentic of the character, and the Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia is pretty awesome…“When 59 years old, I reach… Look as good, will not.” she looks so radiant.

Having said all that, if they had just released a single character poster of Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, can you imagine the hype they would have created.

The symmetry in all the posters is also a lovely touch, especially Rey, Finn and Kylo’s

…which one’s your favourite?
