Orlando illustrator and designer Joshua M. Smith (aka “Hydro74“) has created a samurai style Star Wars Stormtrooper design appropriately titled Samurai Trooper that he designed for the Star Wars Celebration VI this year. Limited edition silk screen prints of the original Samurai Trooper design and artist proof (as seen below) are available to purchase from Joshua’s online Purveyor of Sin store.
Earlier this year Hydro74 was invited to be part of Star Wars Celebration which is a massive trade show and Star Wars Convention that features nothing but old and new Star Wars pieces. Lucas Films contacted Hydro74 to develop a Stormtrooper and be part of it’s Artist Alley which included some of the best Star Wars / Lucasfilm artists. From Story Boarders from Empire Strikes back to Film Poster Artist to Comic Book artist It was a pure honor to be represented in a group with such high caliber.
