Mondo and Olly Moss Unveil Three Stunning 'Star Wars' Posters
We've featured some great work from artist Olly Moss as he's crafted some of the most stunning alternate posters for various films. From his work for The Alamo Drafthouse's Rolling Roadshow this year, to a simple yet fantastic poster for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I. Now Mr. Moss has teamed up with Mondo Tees again (who always has plenty of great art up for grabs) for three stunning Star Wars posters highlighting each of the films in the original trilogy. Using some of the memorable scenery from each and silhouettes of three iconic characters, Moss created some of the most unique Star Wars art I've ever seen.
Here are Olly Moss' beautiful Star Wars posters (click each for larger versions) courtesy of Wired:
As for his latest collaboration with Mondo Tees, here's what Moss had to say: "It was so intimidating! There is such a wealth of great Star Wars art out there already, from paid professionals and from enthusiastic fans. I suppose my main aim was to make a set of Star Wars posters that were a little different from what people are used to seeing from the franchise, but still retained that essential Star Wars feel. I started by re-watching the original movies with a sketchbook on my lap, and just sort of went from there."
You can get your hand on these, but since Mondo is famous for rare and collectible art, there are only 400 prints of each available for $50 each. Sized at 24"x36", these posters are perfect for framing and great additions to any Star Wars fan's wall. All three prints go on sale Monday, December 20th at an unknown time. So stay tuned to Mondo's website and their Twitter feed to find out when they go on sale. Good luck!

Pretty nice. Though I wonder why he chose a Tie-Fighter with Cloud City for Empire Strikes Back. Why not the Millenium Falcon? The Tie-Fighter isn't seen until they start chasing the Falcon away from Cloud City. Whatever, that's being picky. Still pretty solid work.
