Druillet does Star Wars

Star Wars poster 2626 resize

In the late seventies George Lucas asked French legendary science-fiction cartoonist Philippe Druillet for a gouache based on his Star Wars films.  Druillet made Darth Vader even more menacing than he was before.

More on Lucas’ fascination with Druillet on Warren Ellis’ Do Anything, and for the same thing the other way around on the French Cité Des Sciences Et De L’Industrie site.
