More About this Item


Description: Star Wars Artist Proof Print, endorsed by Kim D M Simmons, Themanwhoshotlukeskywalker, is one of less than five that exist, this print is slightly bigger than the production print. This double print of the first 12 depicts both the first 12 prints and was purchased direct by the vendor from Ken Simmons the photographer of Kenner in Cincinnati.. "THE STORY OF THE ORIGINAL 12 ILLUSTRATIONS When I first started the project for the Concept Original 12 Edition, I met up with the artist, who had illustrated the Original 12, as I wanted to find out if he had done the Concept Original 12. Upon seeing the print I had made, he told me that he had never seen the illustration before, and these were his words, "It was way too tight, meaning too detailed and there was no way Leia was going to look like that". He felt that it is very likely that whoever did the illustration may not have had the same prototypes to look at as he was given... It turns out the Concept Original 12 was painted over the blueprints of the figures drawn by the engineer... I was also told that when the concept illustration was submitted to George Lucas, he rejected the illustration as being too detailed." 18" x 36 1/2".
