Craig Drake‘s Stunning New Star Wars Celebration Poster Concepts & Star Wars Rebels Variant

Craig Drake the senior designer at has already made a great looking Celebration Anaheim poster, but a new piece of work for the event went through several cool concepts, (such as the above) and includes a variant with Star Wars Rebels...

After several concepts such as the above, Craig said;

“I initially was given quite a bit of freedom to tackle a theme, and that’s how I came up with the first version, featuring Boba [Fett], Vader, and the stormtrooper.” His inspiration came not from a specific love of the bad guys, though. It was borne more out of the spirit of Star Wars Celebration. “I really thought of it from the fan perspective,” he says. “You know, at those events, people dress up. Especially the 501st Legion, with everyone crafting their costumes. It seems to be the stormtroopers, Boba Fetts, and Vaders are the heavy focus in terms of costumes. Those are just iconic, wonderful shapes to actually illustrate. And I think through that process, we quickly decided, these are neat looking, but we actually wanted to include human faces and build it out like a traditional movie poster with a variety of characters.”
