Artist Tsuneo Sanda was born in Osaka, Japan. His early idols include Rembrandt, Rene Magritte, Paul Davis and Robert Peak. Sanda first discovered his love for art around the age of 7. A Star Wars fan since 1977’s A New Hope, he describes the film as “filled with dreams.” The saga continues to be “a part of my brain cells” even today. “The first few moments of each episode overwhelm me,” Sanda says, “exploding in my head like brilliant fireworks.” He later created a “Lovely Leia” companion piece.

I purchased this from StarWarsShop.com on April 15, 2009.

Grant Gould was the only artist in the Star Wars Celebration VI Art Show who based his limited edition print on Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Rather than the usual 250 prints, his print was limited to 200. The heroes pictured are Jedi Anakin Skywalker who is surrounded by Padmé Amidala, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Captain Rex, Ahsoka Tano, and Yoda.

I pre-ordered the print from Acme Archives on August 2, 2012 and then picked it up on August 23, 2012, at Star Wars Celebration VI in Orlando, Florida.
