These prints are original artist's interpretations by renowned American Pop-artist, Sid Maurer; an artist who was instrumental in Andy Warhol's career.

    I just got off the phone with the event organizer, and they want as many of us there in costume as possible. They are specifically looking for stormtroopers to escort Dave Prowse onto the stage, the more the better. The only costumes they don't want are Vader and Fett, since the actors themselves will be there.

    They are offering us a discount of some type on both tickets to the event, as well as the prints. I do not know what kind of a discount we're talking about yet. If you can attend, please post here with what costume you'll be bringing. They want to have a list of what costumes we can bring ASAP.

    What a ripoff that was. 20 bucks to get in, and then you had to pay 20 bucks for each autograph. The plus side was that there was only 10 people there, so I got to talk to all the actors.
