EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Dagobah Poster by JC Richard
This superb Star Wars illustration was created by artist JC Richard, and it is called “The Impossible.” It features Luke Skywalker and R2-D2 watching Yoda lift the X-Wing out of the swamps of Degobah with the power of the force. This is a beautiful scene in the film, and it’s wonderfully interpreted in this piece of art. The artist explains his art:
"Why Dagobah? These are the scenes I always come back to when thinking about the original trilogy. 'Try not. Do… or do not.' This is Star Wars to me–no midicloridians, no voodoo, no dogmatic bullshit; it’s just a teacher trying to get his student to remove himself as the obstacle to success, to tap into his true potential and manifest the power he doesn’t even realize he has. Even now as I watch ESB and listen to Yoda speak about the Force, I believe in it all over again… that its energy surrounds us, binds us.. that luminous beings are we, not only this crude matter.. for my ally is the force..and a powerful ally it is."
The poster debuted on /Film and is a 36 x 12 inch screenprint in an edition of 150. if you want one, it will cost you $40. Just make sure to www.microcosmicmedia.com at 2 p.m. eastern time to get it because that’s when and where it goes on sale.
