We are excited to offer to you this original page from the book Darth Vader and Friends by the effervescent Jeffrey Brown published in the spring of 2015. You are bidding on Brown’s original art for page 17 drawn with ink and markers on a 6x6” piece of illustration board. The reverse side of the art contains Brown’s handwritten notes of the dates on which he drew the various stages in his creative process, along with a little character doodle and his signature with the completion date of 9/18/14.
Beginning a few years back with Darth Vader and Son, Brown’s humorous take on the Star Wars universe was a refreshing look at the human side of the Sith Lord’s relationship with a young version of his son, and struck a chord with judges for the Eisner Awards who gave one to him for Best Humor Publication. The book proved to be very popular with Star Wars fans, that Brown was soon working on several sequels winning another Eisner for Vader’s Little Princess.
Our thanks to Jeffrey for donating this original art to our fundraiser.
