“Walkies!” Print (Jabba and Leia) by Matt Dixon

April 27, 2013

walkies

This is an older piece of artwork, but I stumbled upon it for the first time a few weeks ago and contacted UK-based artist Matt Dixon to see if I could get a print. It’s a clever concept. It sort of illustrates how Leia turned the tables on Jabba in the film, but this time she’s making him her pet (just as Jabba did to her) rather than strangling him. I like the “J” dog tag. 🙂

The title of the piece is “Walkies!” which is a reference to famed dog trainer Barbara Woodhouse, who always used to use that phrase when talking her dogs out for a walk to encourage them to do their business. The print is an 8×10.

      You’d have to get I contact with the artist to see what he’s charging now but it wasn’t very expensive.

        Thanks for the answer, the print is already on the way from Matt Dixon to me. 🙂
        You have showcased a lot of other prints which I believe should find their way into my collection and I’m happy that except one (Tim Proctor) it is still possible to buy them online.

        Tim Proctor is a member over at Rebelscum and you might be able to get any of his prints directly from him. It’s worth a try. Here’s his thread:
