The Star Wars commission

We finally managed to get our Star Wars commission finished this week (see here and here for earlier blog entries). It was done as a commission on an 8ft x 5ft wall for a 6 year old Star Wars fan extraordinaire (yes, he even has the Star Wars bed sheets like i used to have). As he was more of a fan of the newer films I thought it best to stick to the new look clone trooper (originally designed by Genndy Tartakovsky for the animated/comic series) and throw in some design elements.

The clonetrooper on slate (see here) has also now been framed and is also hanging in pride of place on the other wall. The best part was obviously finding out how the recipient felt about his new mural. He was pretty excited and will apparently be the envy of all his friends!  All in all a most satisfying conclusion…

You can check a very, very short video (just 15 secs!) below. We couldn’t use our video camera as the room was too small and it could only focus on a small area of wall so we just put some still shots to a great little Star Wars soundtrack…

Star Wars commission – stage 2

The second of a load of star wars stencils we will be cutting as part of a commission we have recently been asked to do on a kid’s bedroom wall (the first one can be seen here). I have taken a few liberties with the colours of the trooper but as far as i can tell they can come in many different colour schemes so i don’t think my pastel disco version is stretching it that far…
There isn’t all that much creativity involved but it’s still good to do as there is so much iconic imagery to use. We’ll mainly be using the characters from the animated/comic Clone Wars series that were originally designed by Genndy Tartakovsky(who also designed Samurai Jack and Dexter’s Laboratory).
Title: Clone trooper slate
