Disney have released images of 21 art prints that have been selected for Celebrations 20/21. Alas, with the pandemic in full swing, the actual event was cancelled, but the prints have been made available on the Dark Ink site. As you would expect, some of these prints are truly stunning and quite diverse in their ficus. Unfortunately, of the 21 prints, only two really fit into my collection.
The first is On the Eve of War from Cat Staggs.
On the Eve of War
“I started the propaganda series back in 2007 with ‘Spirit of ’77’ and here I am with the 8th piece in the series, ‘On The Eve Of War.’ The Rebellion was built on scraps and what better way to illustrate that than ‘support your own’ style propaganda. Usually, I would alternate between the Rebellion and the Empire, but this year I was really struggling to bring an Imperial concept to fruition. I had been wanting to do this piece for a few years and then we lost Peter Mayhew, and it made this piece mean even more to me. I found a new drive to make this piece come together. I hope it captures the heart behind those who never seem to tire in the battle against the Empire.” — Cat Staggs
I really enjoy the propaganda poster style of this print. A theme which runs through a few of her works.
Limited to an edition size of 250 pieces and is $75. The print itself is 18″ by 24″
