topps: stromtroopers

i just received the green light to show my base card for the upcoming star wars: galaxy 6 card set from topps. what makes this series of cards so damn cool (in my opinion) is the fact that topps commissions artists with insanely varied styles to illustrate their takes on all corners of the star wars universe.

i am a massive star wars fan, and topps cards were a huge part of my childhood ('87 wood-border baseball set, anyone?) so it goes without saying that my inclusion in this set is a big deal.

i was pretty much given free reign to tackle any character(s) in the star wars universe for this. resisting the urge to go the bounty hunter route, i instead chose to create a collage of original trilogy stromtrooper designs, complete with a badass AT-AT pilot.

That's really nice. Reminds me a bit in style of soviet-era propaganda posters, with the profiles looking slightly up, as though in allegiance. I especially like the split-helmet vehicle tag--that's really clever and could have been a card unto itself.
Topps needs to give you more work, man!
