For “Star Wars” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” fans, one artist has once again created best of both worlds.
For the first “Guardians” film a few years ago, Matt Ferguson, graphic designer and artist, created a piece that juxtaposes the movie’s stars into the original poster art of 1977’s “Star Wars.” It was a commissioned piece that got a lot of attention.
Now Ferguson has created a new poster for sequels of both franchises. In a piece that could be argued as even more captivating than the first, Ferguson takes the characters in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” and places them in the classic positions of the poster art for “The Empire Strikes Back.”
There is no sign that the piece will be made available to the public (just as the first). Ferguson indicated on Twitter that he won’t be printing the piece in a high resolution.
“Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 2” debuts in theaters this weekend.
