"A NEW HOPE"s NEW INTERPRETATION!
Here's a great image from 2008 I hadn't seen before from the very talented Australian artist Daniel James Cox showing us the opening scene from the original STAR WARS, of Darth Vader and the Imperial Stormtroopers boarding the Rebel Blockade Runner. But, in a nice visual twist, as they might have looked had they stayed true to legendary artist Ralph McQuarrie's original conceptual drawings. Its a terrific and inspired interpretation of a classic and iconic moment of film history, and makes me wish it had made it into the finished movie!

For fans of Ralph McQuarrie's work in general, his loyal behind the scenes friends/team have done a complete and highly impressive re-imagining of his website, full of great examples of his work over the years, and covering all kinds of subjects, as well as lots of other cool features linked to his career beyond STAR WARS that are equally worth discovering.
