For millions of fans around the world, the Star Wars poster that Tim and Greg Hildebrandt created in 1977 became the definitive illustration of that galaxy far, far away. It’s an exciting, vibrant and unforgettable image that is even more astonishing when you realize that it was created in just 36 hours. While it’s only one of countless beautiful pieces of art that Tim created in his life — including hundreds of other inspired Star Wars illustrations — the Star Wars poster is truly iconic and will always loom large in the imagination. We will miss Tim’s artistry and talents tremendously.
