This is just great. I remember when I saw this in my local movie theater how great it was to see actual illustration used for the poster ! I think before that the last movie I saw where the poster had illustration was Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Thanks Stephen, kind of you to say. It was a great project to work on and a wonderful opportunity for me - even though I've worked for Lucasfilm for many years.

This is amazing, especially because its all traditional and not digital. You've actually revived my passion for art because I was in a period were I was lost and had a huge artistic block, but now you've helped me!

Never got around to congratulating you earlier this year about this becoming the official IMAX rerelease poster Mark! So well deserved too, such a fantastic poster! So perfectly nails everyones favorite moments of the film all in one piece!

Cheers mate --

It was a huge honor. As I've mentioned elsewhere I was always very concerned about doing the piece given Amsel and Drew's legacy but apart from a few folk who would have preferred a new Drew work (which is understandable), I've been absolutely humbled by the overwhelmingly positive response to the piece.

Thanks again and best wishes to you and yours for a terrific 2013...
