CLASSIC ART: REVENGE OF THE BUSCH!
Anyone who attended the ice-cold but inspiring CELEBRATION III event in Indianapolis during 2005 would remember what an exciting time it was, literally taking place mere weeks before REVENGE OF THE SITH arrival in worldwide cinemas. When not watching the special, and quite superb, sneak-peek showreel hosted by the now LUCASFILM departed Rick McCallum, or sleeping rough and enduring some of the worst weather conditions to try and see a George Lucas panel, fans were buying up and enjoying all kinds of EPISODE III related tie-ins, be they the official novelisation, souvenir magazines and OFFICIAL PIX images by the bucket load. It was pretty hard trying to keep all the spoilers away!
Particularly adding to the impact of the event was the numerous great art on display by so many talented people, especially Matt Busch, who really came into his own that year, providing this stellar piece linked to the event and the anticipated movie. Enthusiastic as ever, Matt is now celebrating his 20th year drawing supreme STAR WARS art to the highest standards, so we at STAR WARS AFICIONADO thank him for his tireless energy and artistic flair.
Looking forward to seeing your upcoming EPISODE VII work, which I'm sure you're already contracted for by now!
