Millennium Falcon by Ben Jeffrey


Last year, i thought i had some success with adding some original pieces of art to my collection. (Kevin Weber’s “Return to Kashyyyk“, Keith Crawley’s “Death Star Run” and David Hardy’s “Millennium Falcon”.) They’re all stunning and i was really pleased with them. Emboldened by the aqcuisition of these pieces, i thought that i’d actively seek out original pieces of art and came across the wonderful work of Ben Jeffrey. I commisioned him to paint the Millennium Falcon for me and with The Force Awakens having just been released, it was natural that he’d want to paint a scene from the movie.

Ben JeffreysBen’s depiction of the Millennium Falcon’s flight from Jakku is spot on and there’s a real sense of speed and action in this painting.

The image itself is 40″ by 30″ and oil on canvas.

Well, Ben was kind enough to bring this over last night and I have to say that it is stunning. I will post some photos once I have hung it.

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.
