ACME Archives have released a new print my Dave Nestler called “Let The Wookie Win“. It’s a scene depicting Chewie and Artoo’s Dejarik chess game from A New Hope and it’s very similar to Jim Ferguson’s work of the same name.
The Canvas version is 16″ by 21.5″ and is limited to an edition size of 95 pieces for a rather pricey $395. The paper version is a slightly smaller size of 12″ by 16″ and the edition size is 150 pieces but its a much more reasonable price of $89.
I must confess that i think the perspective on this piece is a little squiffy (yes, that’s a proper art term) and Han’s position is where the back of the couch should be. Looking a Dave’s website and his pin up work i can’t help thinking that this is a below par piece of work from him and would’ much preferred some nose art more akin to his Pin Up work.
If i do decide to pick one of these up, it’ll be on the ACME sale on the 22nd of May and it’ll be the paper version.
