Cristiano Siqueira created one of the best series of Star Wars character artworks for the official Star Wars Celebration 2019 Badges using his unique style of vector illustration that has got him a renowned reputation with a variety of A-List clients.
Many had said it was Paul Shipper behind the Star Wars Celebration Character Banner, I was skeptical as it didn’t match his style, so I did a bit of digging and found it was done by Cristiano Siqueira, a renowned vector illustrator from São Paulo, Brasil.
Here’s what he had to say about it on Facebook page.
“Very proud to finally be able to share this work with you!
I spent a good part of the last year second semester working on these Star Wars characters for Lucas Film. This work will be the key art of the “Star Wars Celebration 2019”, a big Star Wars fan event that happens in Chicago, at April this year.”
Here’s selection of close ups of the key art he shared on Facebook.
New artwork by Cristiano Siqueira from São Pauloin Brazil has landed on the official Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019 section of StarWars.com featuring an assortment of characters from across the Star Wars Saga.
Interestingly Cristiano Siqueira banner contains 18 characters (if you include Luke’s hands and the Lightsaber) so I wonder if this is the base artwork for the Star Wars Celebration 2017 Badge Art and Passes?
