Han Solo by Brian Sauriol


Some time ago, Brian Sauriol was auctioning off the original of his Millenium Falcon Cut-Away painting. It was quite a unique auction as not only had this 20 year old painting never been seen before, it also came with all of the documentation between him and Lucasfilm from it’s initial commission, to the finished painting. It is stunning and i put in a bid of £1, 000. Obviously, this was no where near the winning bid. (I knew that i was way off, but as a Millennium Falcon collector, i couldn’t no bid. 🙂 ) In my correspondance with Brian, he alluded that this image may be reproduced as a print in the near future. I was curious about this, so i went on to his site to see if there was any news for this image and saw that this Han Solo print had been submitted along with the cutaway for the 25th Anniversery celebration next year.FalconPoster1_01Now, in case you’re looking at the image of Han thinking it’s a photo, here’s the wire frame drawing showing that it is indeed a piece of digital art.

FalconWireFrame2_01 The whole thing took Brian a staggering 400 hours of work and i can see why.

Hopefully this and the cutaway work will be available in print form in Spring 2015. In case you missed it, here’s a 15MB image of the cutaway in print form.

A keen Star Wars collector since 1977, my collection focus seems to have taken on a turn towards Han Solo's iconic Star Ship. Why the Millennium Falcon? No one else seemed to have one at the time and it was fair to say that i had difficulty resisting the higher end models. My friend, icruise from Rebelscum has a superb blog for his Jabba the Hutt collection, I thought that i'd start this blog to chart my own collection of Millennium Falcon related stuff as it increases. Well, that was the plan but it now seems to be more about cataloguing any Millennium Falcon item in general now so that i can come back to them later.
