“Star Wars – The Dan Mumford Series” by John Williams

Hello! Today I’m presenting you both old and new stuff. Over the course of the last few weeks London based freelance illustrator Dan Mumford released the full set of art prints that he did for The Last Jedi. I took this opportunity and turned them into four different custom covers, just like I did roughly two years ago for The Force Awakens (I overhauled those as well). Assuming that there’ll be four more artworks in two more years, at the latest, for Episode IX, I thought that it’s finally time to give these ladies their own spotlight. In case you’re interested in having these designs…

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” by John Williams

Almost exactly two years ago I was just about to finish what would become HQCovers‘ most successful blog entry so far: Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It was a massive undertaking, at least from my perspective. Nineteen (quite complicated) custom covers and related in-depth liner notes. All in all it took me about eight weeks, which is quite a lot compared to other entrys on this site. That’s why I decided that this year I’ll make it fast and easy. And by fast and easy I mean that I re-used most of my old templates and knocked out this entire collection over…

“Star Wars – Target Exclusive Collection” by John Williams

In december 2015 US discount retailer Target sold an exclusive version of John Williams’ The Force Awakens score. And when I was asked to create custom covers in the same style for the rest of the saga, well, I couldn’t say no. But first I had to recreate the Target cover to get rid of that ugly sticker. And also, to prepare myself a universal template that I could use for previous and future* episodes. This request came right in the middle of working on another series, but I figured a little change won’t hurt. It keeps your creative spark on fire. So I…

“Star Wars – The Deluxe Editions” by John Williams, Michael Giacchino

I have postponed the idea of working on Star Wars custom covers again and again and again… stowed it away deep down in the cryostasis chambers of my HQCovers space station. But not particularly because I didn’t want to work on John Williams’ opus magnum. No, because I was afraid of not being able to do it justice. I’ve put so much effort into this or that covers series, that I sometimes find it hard to raise the bar. But this is Star Wars, the mother and father of all film franchises and fan fiction universes ever, right? It has to be the very best, most fucking awesome custom…
