GET A FIRST LOOK AT ILLUSTRATIONS OF REY, KYLO REN, AND MORE, COMING SOON TO A LANYARD NEAR YOU.
Badge art has become its own Celebration highlight and tradition, and with good reason — each show has had unique illustrations, with different styles and approaches. Some years, there have been color themes with stylized takes on characters; other times, the focus has been on an animated series or specific movie. For Star Wars Celebration Orlando, coming April 13-16, 2017, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, the tradition continues into a totally new aesthetic: photorealistic sketches of characters from current Star Wars stories, with a hand-drawn feel. They come courtesy artist Paul Shipper and several are revealed below, exclusively on StarWars.com.
