That’s the final print in JAKe‘s art print set: “1983: The Circle Is Now Complete“. A2, 33 euros, and a perfect way to complete the set, JAKe having previously created prints for Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back.

There is a reserves list – get in touch through email at his website, or via Twitter. Here’ what JAKe had to say…

I’ll be, err, drawing wookiees and other denizens of the SW universe, giving away some artwork and signing copies of ‘Sprich wie ein Wookiee’, the German version of my book ‘How To Speak Wookiee’ ( Lucasfilm/ Chronicle Books ).
