Dave Dorman “Leia as Boushh” Print

May 15, 2010

This is a print from 1998 by Dave Dorman, who also did the “Knockin’ at Jabba’s Door” and “In the Court of Jabba the Hutt” prints. I think this one precedes both of those prints, however. It shows Leia in her Boushh disguise (sans helmet) standing in front of Han in carbonite. Of course there was never a scene exactly like this in the film, since she didn’t take off her helmet until after defrosting Han, but a little artistic license is certainly forgivable. I forgot to take any pictures of the print before having it framed, but it basically just has a larger white border, and there is some copyright text underneath the “STAR WARS” logo that I had them mat out. The mat I chose is a reddish brown with hints of gold and really seems to go well with the print. Click the image for a larger view.

Dorman did a remarque (hand-drawn pencil drawing) on one corner of the print of Leia with her helmet on. I got this print second-hand, so I’m not sure if he did the same remarque on all of these pieces or what. It’s pretty nicely done, though.

    As with the other Dorman prints, that’s spectaculary good. He really captured Leia IMO.
