Star Wars


Project Title: Star Wars Poster
Project Type: Print
Client: Self-initiated

Creating my own alternative movie posters has been a love of mine for a long time now. I think it stems from my love of cinema and popular culture. I created this piece around the time Star Wars: Rogue One was due to be released, with Darth Vader finally making his return to the screen.

Starting out as a sketch, it hit me that Vader's Imperial Shuttle looked remarkably like his mouth piece, so with some refining and shadow work, it creates the illusion of a regular Darth Vader mask. Viewers are then rewarded with the second reveal of his Imperial Shuttle.
