Lucasfilm Artist Creates Gorgeous Tribute To Carrie Fisher
Star Wars fans around the world have gone to great lengths to memorialize Carrie Fisher, who passed away in December of last year. And now, one LucasFilm artist has joined in, with a rather stunning piece of tribute art.
Joe Corroney, who has been designing art for various Star Wars properties since 1996, shared the art on his Facebook page, in a post that you can see below. The art features the actress in her various appearances as Leia Organa, with her appearance from The Last Jedi's Vanity Fair cover taking center stage.
According to Corroney, the art will be available in print for the volunteers and staff of this weekend's Denver Comic Con, which Fisher was initially scheduled to appear at. We think it's a pretty touching tribute that those at Denver Comic Con and beyond are sure to appreciate.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres theaters December 15.
