Pendulum Press poster

Pendulum Press poster

This is the most recent poster I've purchased, and it's not one I'd ever frame, I think. It's just so weird. Let's consider. The art is FLAT. The details are there, even if the likenesses are not. But it comes from 1977, when the whole Star Wars thing was just the wild west. There was no uniform set of images provided by the studio or Lucasfilm. It was just inspired artists giving it their best shot but still not always realizing that Star Wars was more than just another "space movie". Or maybe it was just a paid assignment. Who knows? This is just a quirky little piece that I like enough to stick in the big art portfolio with other mini posters.
