Star Wars Art
Contest Directions: Legendary film director George Lucas is hiring writers for the Star Wars saga, which is set to continue in the form of TV series. Lucas has been hiring writers for this TV project since February 2006, and he is now getting some writers from outside of the US. The filmmaker invited the writers to spend a week at his Skywalker Ranch in November, where they are going to finalize the story plot for the 13 episodes of the Star Wars TV show.
To celebrate the upcoming continuation of the legendary saga, put Star Wars characters (Darth Vader, Luke, Yoda, etc.) into the following works of art: paintings, drawings, sketches or statues. Changing an original surrounding (e.g. background) of a painting (drawing, etc.) to a Star Wars theme is a plus. And last but not least... Use the force!
