The 16th poster of Mondo’s STAR WARS themed art prints is one of the best of the series. “Sanctuary Moon” by artist Daniel Danger is a dark, detailed look at a battle between Ewoks and a group of AT-ST’s on Endor.

Check out the print and what Danger said about his inspiration behind it after the break.

"i grew up on Ewoks, not Star Wars. thats a very odd statement to say, but until i was maybe eleven, i had no idea Ewoks were even related to Star Wars, the connection was just never made. chalk that up to the fact that the majority of my tv entertainment consisted of things taped off television on VHS. so i didnt have Empire, i had Battle For Endor because NBC aired it, mcdonalds commercials and all (’the hot stays hot and the cool stays cool‘). my brother was the true enthusiast, his stock primary stuffed animals as a kid was Wicket and Paploo (he still has them at age 30), and they were worn into oblivion. for the sake of trivia, i named my primary stuffed bear a descriptive phrase: “brown softy”, but it was not space related. but needless to say, there were alot of cardboard spaceships and tree forts at our house. little did seven year old me know there were alot of other plots we could have pretended our way through.  no regrets.  either way, when asked to do this print for Mondo/LucasArts, my decision was already made."

I think that Danger's style lends itself magnificently to the STAR WARS universe. The color palette and exceptional detail put his print alongside the best in the series. 

"Santuary Moon" goes on sale tomorrow, December 10th at an unspecified time (buyer's tip: it is usually around 11AM). The print will be available in a very limited run of 230, so be sure and follow Mondo's twitter at @mondonews to find out as soon as the poster goes on sale. May the force be with you.

    And of course the man who writes an article about this poster can’t even get one in time. :-( Word from Mondo is that it sold out in less than a minute.
