I’ve been a fan of Star Wars my entire life.

As a kid, growing up in the late 70’s and early 80’s, it had a profound affect on me. Star Wars was this entire universe built on imagination and creativity. I would play with the action figures and toys…I read and listened to the books and records…I dressed up like Han Solo for Halloween…but most of all I would draw.

I drew everything from Star Wars – the heroes, the villains, the vehicles, the environments. I spent countless hours recreating the scenes and characters that had captured my imagination. You can see some of these drawings if you click below.

Ty Mattson Star Wars Cantina poster

I never stopped drawing. I became a graphic designer. I studied modern design and I was inspired by the designers and illustrators who were practicing in the 50’s and early 60’s. I was influenced by the work of Alvin Lustig, Paul Rand and Saul Bass. In college I worked at Disneyland, where I was surrounded by the artwork of Bjorn Aaronson, Paul Hartley and Rolly Crump. All of these artists had a huge influence on me.

So I wanted to combine my appreciation for mid-century modern design with my passion for Star Wars. That’s the idea behind this poster series…

Star Wars Modern.

Each poster is screen printed on 100lb French Paper by Vahalla Studios.
The artwork is officially licensed by Lucasfilm.
