The Kessel Run by oldredjalopy The Kessel Run by oldredjalopy
This is a personal piece I've had in my head for a little while - finally had a few hours spare to get it done! It's based on the excellent Drew Struzen poster for The Cannonball Run [link]

Tried out a new, slightly more comic illustration style for this one. Also made a few arbitrary layout and font changes from the original. Nice to have it out of my system!

Great work! I have one question, though - what does the "18" on the speed limit sign reference?

Also - before anyone chips in - I put Maximum SPEED 18 Parsecs as a joke on the 'distance/speed' nonsense! :D

Hi there. If I've researched it right, 18 parsecs is the distance of The Kessel Run. Hence Han Solo's bragging about doing it is under 12 parsecs (don't get me started on the whole 'parsecs as unit of distance not time' brouha - I think Lucas was just having an off day when he wrote that bit!). Thanks for the feedback!

Wow, that's another great poster I didn't know Drew had done. I must get around to buying a book with his poster art.

PS, your poster is awesome too :)
