Steve Thomas has long held a love of the illustrations seen in vintage poster art. As he says on his website bio:
“My love for vintage poster, propaganda and product art from the early 20th century and an interest in retro-futuristic art from the mid-20th has led me to create some cool poster art. I mean, who doesn’t want to travel the solar system or join the fight against the villains of 1980s arcade games?”
It’s in this vein that Steve has designed a set of six gorgeous travel art-inspired designs from a galaxy far, far away. Celebrate your favorite Star Wars locations with one of these new styles: bask under the glow of the Alderaan moon, or float through a Bespin sunset! Hit the slopes on Hoth, and cruise the forests of Endor. Adventure awaits, scoundrels!
Each available for $25 at WeLoveFine.com.
