Hey gang! Check out this great new Star Wars print from Mondo Tees! This piece of bad-ass art titled Great Warrior was created by artist Todd Slater. The image takes certain physical earthy elements that make up the swamp on Dagobah to create Yoda’s face.
Here is what the artist had to say about the poster on OMG:
From the first time that I saw Star Wars, I was captivated by the mystery of Yoda’s species and home world. For Yoda, Dagobah was a place to disappear, and I see him as being at one with the landscape. For this print I wanted to camouflage him as a part of this murky planet using leaves, sticks, ferns and other flora found in the swamps. The image is printed on black paper with a shiny black varnish layer in the background. The varnished layer reveals even more of Dagobah and is shown as a transparency through Yoda’s face. The kanji (japanese characters) on the left side gives one word representations of the six stages I identified in Luke’s Jedi training: the meeting of a great warrior, the discovery of a Jedi’s strength, entering of a domain of evil, learning that size matters not, seeing the future and finally, the confrontation of Vader. The screen print is seven colors, which is the most I’ve done to date.
Great Warrior is a 17″ x 24″ screenprint with an edition of 385. It goes up tomorrow (Thursday, August 26th) at a random time at Mondotees.com. So make sure to try and get one!
