The AT-AT Driver is inspired by my desire to illustrate some of the supporting Star Wars characters that may not get as much attention as the main characters do.
Talking with fans and members of the various costuming groups (such as the 501st Legion) I started to think about the efforts these fans put forth to express their love of Star Wars and the various characters and armors they build.
I've always respected, not only the amount of time and craftsmanship that they put into creating their costumes, but also that these fans then make countless appearances at various hospitals and charity events to bring smiles to children. The dedication to Star Wars and willingness to help others has always been inspiring to me.
With this in mind, I decided I wanted to do a series of paintings to pay tribute to those die hard fans and the characters they love. AT-AT Driver is the first piece in this series paying homage to the not only the design of the Star Wars universe but to the fans who bring it to life for so many others to enjoy.

Stretching, Gallery Wrapping and Framing takes an additional 10-14 business days.
Stretched is a canvas stretched and stapled on the back to a thin wooden frame (also known as a stretcher bar). A stretched canvas is ready for framing.
Gallery Wrap is a canvas stretched and secured to a thick wooden frame stapled on the back with a hanging wire. A gallery wrapped canvas is suitable for hanging on the wall.
Framing varies in cost and type. Some items have custom framing. Our general framing for items is square black frame with acid-free mat, snapline and plexiglass (non UV). Canvas artwork is framed without plexiglass, generally in a float frame.
