We’ve featured the art of Kevin Tong a ton of times on this site, but he’s just released what I consider to be two of the best pieces of his career thus far. Today, Acme Archives and Mondo have two new Star Wars-themed posters paying tribute to two of the original trilogy’s most iconic lightsaber fights. The press release described them like this:
Cloud City Duel and Death Star II Duel feature two iconic showdowns between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader representing the two characters’ duality with the light and dark side of the Force.
Cloud City Duel by Kevin Tong. 24″x36″ screen print. Hand numbered. Edition of 275. Printed by D&L Screenprinting. $60
Death Star II Duel by Kevin Tong. 24″x36″ screen print. Hand numbered. Edition of 275. Printed by D&L Screenprinting. $60
Personally, I like the one from Empire a lot more. I think it has a lot to do with the color scheme — the green and red in the other piece just seems a bit too Christmas-y to me. Head to mondotees.com to see if there are any left, but by the time you’re reading this, they’ll probably be sold out. Oh well — there’s always eBay!
