TFN's official banner artwork for Star Wars Celebration V is finally here! As some of you may already know, a few months ago we contacted resident fan artist Joe Hogan about creating some exclusive artwork to be used for the Jedi Council / FanForce table banner at Celebration V.
Joe was very eager to work with us and quickly came up with several ideas and sketches for us to choose from. In an almost unanimous decision, we decided on his depiction of the iconic scene from The Empire Strikes Back of Han Solo frozen in carbonite. The finished art was recently printed up on a massive 8'x4' vinyl banner for Celebration V, and we couldn't be happier with the results!
The banner will be on display at the Jedi Council/FanForce table, located at booth #1524 in the exhibitor hall. As a special treat, Joe himself will be hanging out with us at the table on Friday, August 13th from 11am-12pm! So be sure to stop by and say hello. Joe also designed one of the official FanForce / Jedi Council fan badges which you can download and print right here on the forums, so don't forget to wear yours and tell him how much you love it!
You'll want to stop by the table often, as we'll be giving out free TFN swag and raffling off prizes all convention long! You can also keep up to date with things as they happen by following TFN on Twitter.
