Art For Sale! Star Wars Illustrated : A New Hope “Biggs’ Big News” (Line Art)
From Topps Trading Cards Star Wars: Illustrated Trading Card Series (2013). One of 31 original drawings created by artist Randy Martinez for this popular Trading Card series. “Biggs’ Big Secret” is a scene illustrated from the Star Wars Radio Drama.
Soon after Luke wins his T-16 sky hopper race through Beggars Canyon, Luke is reunited with his Best friend Biggs Darklighter, whom left Tattooine for the Acadamy a year earlier, to Lukes disappointment. Biggs comes back to Tattooine to visit his old friend, but also to tell him his plans to join the Rebel Alliance. Biggs also tries to convince Luke that Luke is meant for greater things than being a farm boy. Luke resists and it establishes Luke having an excuse for not following his dreams or instincts, something Obi Wan Kenobi will soon test.
This scene was actually filmed for the original Star Wars film in 1977, but it was eventually cut from the film. Was later reinserted into the Radio drama in 1981.
This is the actual art used for the trading card. It is a great, very detailed piece, that was later digitally colored for the final product.
NOTE:This lot is for the Black and White Line Art only. The color sample is to show how the Trading card product looks after digital color was added.
