In eager anticipation of the UK release of the lavish new STAR WARS STORYBOARDS: THE ORIGINAL TRILOGY hardcover by J.W. Rinzler, published by ABRAMS, AFICIONADO presents a six-day tribute to the incredible art works of the diverse visualists whose key contributions helped bring to life the defining three movies of 1977, 1980 and 1983.
Day One celebrates Alex Tavoularis, an artist and friend of George Lucas brought in during 1975 to work on the films boards after Ralph McQuarrie had begun early concept painting. Tavoularis's most notable work would be the dynamic action for THE STAR WARS opening sequence: the Imperial Star Destroyers bullying of the Rebel Blockade Runner and the early arrival on Tatooine by the film's first "stars": droids See-Threepio and Artoo-Detoo- seen here bearing more facial characteristics than their final on screen forms would, as they wander through the corridors of their ship as the attack begins.
