Stan Chow Illustrates Star Wars for WIRED Magazine
Last December Lucasfilm was acquired by Disney and announced it would be making new Star Wars movies. JJ Abrams has been tapped to take the reigns of director, as George Lucas would not be reprising his role. Fans rejoiced at the news, but they were also skeptical. WIRED, the go-to tech + everything cool publication, stood up for the people and put together an article called "74 Things Every Great Star Wars Movie Needs" to make sure that JJ Abrams gets it right. Stan Chow was pulled in to illustrate 10 of the 74 things after the New Yorker's Creative Director Wyatt Mitchell suggested him for the job.
Some of articles Stan illustrated where written by people within the film industry, such as LOST co-creators Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof. After reading the articles and doing some Googling, Stan drew up their caricatures using Adobe Illustrator. So far the response has been phenomenal and people have even been asking for the illustrations to be made into posters!
