Millennium Falcon in Hyperspace by Christopher Clark


Millennium Falcon in Hyperspace” is an officially licenced artwork by American Artist Christopher Clark. This painting really gives the sensation of speed and i love the lighting on the Hyperspace effect, something i imagine would be difficult to pull off.

Millennium-Falcon-in-Hyperspace-web Detail 1Prints are available from The Incredible Art Gallery for $395 and is limited to an edition size of 95 pieces. They’re also a fair size at 21″ by 37″, so you get a lot of print for your money. As you can see in the two detail shots below, you can really pick out the paint that has been applied. It’s almost as if it’s been done with a pallet knife. It’s a tactile look and i almost want to run my fingers over it.

The original has yet to be priced, but you’re probably looking at around $6, 000, which isn’t too bad for a licensed original. George Lucas has first refusal on the originals for all licensed artwork, so it may not necessarily be available.

I’d love to see that collection as there’s got to be a book in there somewhere. Still, at least we know where all those lovely originals are going. (I wonder if he has that stunning Grimaldi piece in his collection too?)

For those interested in picking up one of the limited edition prints, use the promotional code “incredible” for a 10% discount.

You can also order these from the ACME Archives web site. $395 for the Canvas edition (SWESB629).

About mffanrodders

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.
