Star Wars Celebration Chicago is now just over a month away and the organisers have revealed that a plethora of exclusive art prints will be available for pick-up at the Celebration Art Show. The Art Show, one of the event’s most popular features, will be held at McCormick Place, Chicago, from April 11 to April 15 (inclusive) and will feature a range of officially licensed art that pays homage to the franchise’s forty-plus-year history.
Ahsoka Tano fans will be glad to hear that she is well represented at this year’s convention, appearing on no fewer than four official prints. Please keep in mind that all of the art prints listed below are available for pick-up only (i.e. they will only be available to those attending Celebration) and that pre-orders will close on March 15. If you’re not attending the convention but a friend or relative is, they might be able to pick up your orders on your behalf.
Full details can be found over on the Dark Ink Star Wars Celebration Chicago page.
“Guidance From Wolves” by Kaela Croft
Kaela Croft is no stranger to Star Wars Celebration. She attended Celebration London back in 2016 and her print “Pieces of the Past” was a beautiful homage to Ahsoka Tano and the people who shaped her life (some prints can still be purchased via her Etsy store).
This year, she’s back with another stunning artwork featuring the tenacious Togruta, who is depicted among a pack of white Loth wolves and wearing the same white-and-grey outfit she donned in the Star Wars Rebels series finale’s epilogue.
“The Returned” by Dianne Vaznelis
Ahsoka’s Rebels epilogue look seems to be a popular choice among the Celebration artists this year! Artist Dianne Vaznelis celebrates the life and times of Ahsoka Tano in her Art Nouveau-inspired print, “The Returned”.
This beautiful pastel-palette, 13″ by 19″ giclée print is limited to just 250 pieces and can be pre-ordered today via the Dark Ink website.
“Before the Dark Times” by James Silvani
If Clone Wars Ahsoka is more your cup of tea, you’ll be happy to know that there’s also a Clone Wars-themed print available in this year’s collection. James Silvani’s “Before the Dark Times” puts the young Padawan in the spotlight and is packed with cameo appearances from the series’ memorable cast.
This 18″ by 24″ lithographic print is limited to 250 pieces and will be available for pick-up at the ACME booth. Don’t forget to pre-order yours via the Dark Ink website.
“There is Another” by Jason Palmer
And, last but not least, Ahsoka Tano joins a star-studded cast in Jason Palmer’s tribute to the women of Star Wars. Titled “There is Another”, this limited edition print sees some of the galaxy’s leading ladies hanging out together and honours the franchise’s four-decade history.
At the time of writing, the design had yet to be finalised and there was no option to pre-order the print via Dark Ink. If you are interested in purchasing this print, please email the artist at firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest and receive updates about its availability.
So, if you’re attending Celebration Chicago and want some new artwork for your collection, head on over to Dark Ink today to pre-order your prints! Pre-orders close on March 15, 2019.
