The next Mondo Star Wars print comes from collage mastermind Todd Slater. “Great Warrior” is a 17″ x 24″ screenprint with an edition of 385. It goes up tomorrow (Thursday, August 26th) at a random time at Mondotees.com.
Here’s what Todd had to say about the image:
“From the first time that I saw Star Wars, I was captivated by the mystery of Yoda’s species and home world. For Yoda, Dagobah was a place to disappear, and I see him as being at one with the landscape. For this print I wanted to camouflage him as a part of this murky planet using leaves, sticks, ferns and other flora found in the swamps. The image is printed on black paper with a shiny black varnish layer in the background. The varnished layer reveals even more of Dagobah and is shown as a transparency through Yoda’s face. The kanji (japanese characters) on the left side gives one word representations of the six stages I identified in Luke’s Jedi training: the meeting of a great warrior, the discovery of a Jedi’s strength, entering of a domain of evil, learning that size matters not, seeing the future and finally, the confrontation of Vader. The screen print is seven colors, which is the most I’ve done to date.”
