Check Out Hi-Fi at the Star Wars Celebration Europe July 15 - 17

While this news item is not DC Comics related, it is about two things near and dear to my heart...Star Wars and artist, Hi-Fi!  If you happen to be around London town between July 15- 17, then you can go and check out all the cool things going on.  If you can't get to Merry Old England, have no fear, you can still order some of the awesome Star Wars art from the links below.  Here is the official press release...

Hundreds of artists were considered for the Star Wars Celebration Art Show, in the end Lucasfilm and the panel of judges selected 23 artists to create exclusive new illustrations for the event. Two of the featured artists are the duo of Joe Corroney and Hi-Fi color design's Brian Miller who frequently collaborate on cover illustrations for sci-fi comics like X-Files, Ghostbusters, Star Trek, and Doctor Who as well as Star Wars art for book covers, Star Wars Insider magazine, Topps trading cards, and Star Wars collectables for ACME Archives & Dark Ink Art. 

Joe Corroney and Brian Miller each chose to represent the Dark Side of the Force and more specifically the First Order in their Star Wars Celebration exclusive illustrations titled, “ORDER" & “BLAST THE RESISTANCE". Joe had this to say about his newest illustration, “I’m really excited to have created “ORDER” as my new limited edition print for Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016! It’s satisfying to come full circle with my Star Wars propaganda print art featuring troopers from the Prequel Trilogy (UNITE), the Classic Trilogy (CONQUER) and now with this new artwork for The Force Awakens from the Sequel Trilogy. I hope fans and collectors alike enjoy this new artwork!”

When asked about his artwork for Celebration Miller says, “BLAST THE RESISTANCE is a propaganda style illustration featuring Kylo-Ren as a larger than life representation of the Dark Side of the Force while Starkiller Base and the TIE Fighters represent the physical manifestation of the First Order’s might. The type and  design elements were chosen to serve as a powerful recruitment tool for the First Order".

Both artists will be attending Star Wars Celebration Europe July 15 - 17 in London where their artwork will be featured in the Celebration Art Show. Limited edition, officially licensed prints of the artwork are being made available exclusively for attendees as well. “Joe and I are honored to be able to make the journey and share our Star Wars art with everyone at Celebration Europe," comments Miller, “Meeting Star Wars fans and spending time with the other artists is a rare treat". Joe Corroney adds, "There’s definitely a camaraderie among all of us Star Wars artists. It’s great fun to catch up with each other at these events".

As artists who work on officially licensed Lucasfilm projects Joe Corroney and Brian Miller also participate in Celebration programming for the fans. Joe will be sketching Star Wars characters at Booth No. S510 and Brian will be participating in the Star Wars Kids art program. Kids can learn how to draw droids with Brian during the "Drawing BB-8 and Friends" event at Celebration.

Star Wars Celebration Europe runs July 15th - 17th, 2016. Fans will find Joe Corroney and Brian Miller appearing at at booth no. S510 during the event.
