A framed, hand-drawn Colin Cantwell concept illustration from the production of George Lucas' Star Wars: A New Hope. Cantwell was the film's additional spacecraft designer on the miniature and optical effects unit. He is widely credited with designing or co-designing many of the film saga's most iconic ships, including the Death Star, the X-Wing, and the Star Destroyer.
This early mixed-media concept collage was one of the first pieces of concept art done for Star Wars, and features a ship penciled in white and black graphite on illustration paper and applied to a hand-painted beige desert background marked "B-9" and signed by Cantwell. The piece is mounted behind glass in a black polished wooden frame. It is in excellent overall condition with some pinholes in the corners.
