This print is 24x36"

I write true-size black ink on white paper before scanning the whole thing and photoshopping the colors. The first word from A New Hope is all the way top left, the last word from Empire is all the way bottom right. Every word in between is exactly where it belongs, handwritten from left to right in chronological order. Spaces are intentionally left in the middle of words and sentences to form the image.

The orange lines that you can see from afar are the more famous quotes from the series. See if you can zoom in and guess any!

Most impressive. Shouldn’t the last word from ROTJ be at the bottom right?

He seems pretty meticulous. Would guess its an oopsie in the comment and not in the art.

Not clear enough to check though.

u/CarolBaskinDidntDoit 8d ago

Even without see the titles, “I am your father” is pretty near the end of Empire and if it’s on his knee that’s about two thirds of the way down. There isn’t nearly that much of dialog between the “I am your father” and the end of the Empire.

Famous quotes in order:

  1. Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.

  2. I find your lack of faith disturbing

  3. Hokey religions and…surrealist mind games?…are no match for a good blaster at your side, bud

  4. That’s no moon. It’s a space station!

  5. Aren’t you a little short for a storm trooper?

  6. I’m Luke Skywalker and I’m here to rescue you!

  7. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine

  8. Use the Force, Luke

  9. I thought they smelled bad…on the outside!

  10. Never tell me the odds!

  11. You like me because I’m a scoundrel. There aren’t enough scoundrels in your life.

  12. I have a bad feeling about this

  13. Do or do not, there is no try

  14. I love you. I know.

  15. I am your father

  16. ??? (Something defending I’ve always become?)

  17. ??? (A horrendous is good in you?)

  18. It’s a trap!

  19. Give into your anger

  20. If I win, give me…the old death march?

A couple were just too blurry (I’m on mobile, so the resolution is limited anyway). How’d I do?

Hard no. The best Star Wars quote of all time is “but I was going to go to Toshi Station to pick up the power converters.”
