We’ve been teasing a new Star Wars print over the past month, and, in collaboration with Acme Archives and Lucasfilm, we’re ecstatic to finally be able to reveal Matt Taylor’s print for the Star Wars: A New Hope!
Matt’s compositions and coloring are always sublime, and his take on Star Wars truly gives off a classic feel, while uniquely emphasizing aspects of the classic story, such as Darth Vader’s looming presence and grip on all of these characters’ lives.
Here’s what Matt had to say about his print: “Star Wars has a very special place in my heart - it’s the first movie i remember seeing in the cinema, and the toys were a mainstay of my childhood. Going to see Star Wars movies on opening day with my dad has become a staple of my moviegoing life, so when asked if I wanted to take a swing at a New Hope poster, I was never going to say no. I tried to go as classic as I could in terms of composition and style and my determination to make this look as good as I could...I’m really happy with how it turned out, and I hope people out there feel the same. I suppose I’d better get thinking about Empire now…”
Matt’s print, alongside a limited variant, will be available as a timed-edition release from Thursday (12/7) @ 12PM ET through Sunday (12/10) @ 11:59PM ET on our homepage, Bottleneckgallery.com!
