Star Wars Holochess & AT-AT Takedown Limited Prints

I was recently part of The Bottleneck Gallery's Gadgets and Gizmos Show.  The Bottleneck is a fantastic new gallery that opened up in the fall of 2012, located in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn, that I think has the potential to be the East Coast version of Gallery 1988 or Gallery Nucleus. In the end, after much contemplation, I decided to create two pieces, thereby fully appeasing my inner eight year old to the nth degree.  The first is a 19x13" rendering of the Dejarik Holochess game from the original Star Wars, the one the Chewbacca and R2D2 face off on, where after talking to Han Solo, C3PO exclaims Let the Wookie win.  After an insane amount of visual research, I managed to piece together this image, and designed it like an old beat up cover of a classic Mattel board game.  The other is an 17x11" depiction of a AT-AT Walker takedown from Empire Strike Back, showcasing the bleak but beautiful Hoth terrain and the moment right before the Empire's most formidable land vehicle is tripped up by a skillful snowspeeder.  Both are limited edition giclĂ©es, signed and numbered.
