When Star Wars debuted in 1977, it revolutionized the visual landscape of mainstream American filmmaking, transporting fans to new galaxies and introducing them to countless now-classic characters, costumes, aliens, planets, and starships. By 2005, with the last film in theaters, the Star Wars Saga had become a phenomenon impacting cultures across the globe. From the beginning, the Star Wars aesthetic was influenced by comic book artists from the 1930s to the 1970s, famed illustrators Chesley Bonestell, John Berkey, Frank Frazetta, and others, as well as classical artists.Just as George Lucas drew upon the work of N. C. Wyeth and Norman Rockwell for his own visual inspiration, he has now invited more than 100 of the best working illustrators, designers, cartoonists, and fine artists to create new work based on or inspired by their favorite characters, themes, landscapes, and moments from the Star Wars Universe. Star Wars: Visions collects the very best of these works together for the first time, celebrating more than thirty years of Star Wars with a roster of talent working in every style and genre. Capturing the imagination, beauty, and breadth of the films, television series, and more, Star Wars Visions is both a tribute to and a new way of experiencing a galaxy far, far away...
Star Wars: Visions features the art of a wide range of the best and upcoming artists, illustrators, designers, and cartoonists working today -- including Amano, Allan R. Banks, Harley Brown, Gary Carter, James Christensen, Michael Coleman, Kinuko Craft, Jim Dietz, Phillipe Druillet, Donato Giancola, Ann Hanson, H. R.
