“Millennium Falcon in Hyperspace” is an officially licenced artwork by American Artist Christopher Clark. This painting really gives the sensation of speed and i love the lighting on the Hyperspace effect, something i imagine would be difficult to pull off.
You can even see Han and Chewie piloting the Falcon in the cockpit. A nice touch IMO.
Prints are available from The Incredible Art Gallery for $395 and is limited to an edition size of 95 pieces. They’re also a fair size at 21″ by 37″, so you get a lot of print for your money. As you can see in the two detail shots below, you can really pick out the paint that has been applied. It’s almost as if it’s been done with a pallet knife. It’s a tactile look and i almost want to run my fingers over it.
I did send an enquiry about the original and Christopher was gracious enough to get back to me straight away. The original has yet to be priced, but you’re probably looking at around $6, 000, which isn’t too bad for a licensed original. George Lucas has first refusal on the originals for all licensed artwork, so it may not necessarily be available.
I’d love to see that collection as there’s got to be a book in there somewhere. Still, at least we know where all those lovely originals are going. (I wonder if he has that stunning Grimaldi piece in his collection too?)
