‘Star Wars’ Artist Creates Carrie Fisher Tribute For Charity

The Star Wars galaxy lost one of its shining stars when Carrie Fisher, the actress behind Princess Leia, died in December 2016.

Many tributes have been penned, spoken and shared throughout the community of fans, artists and well-wishers, but one piece of remembrance is garnering attention.

Artist Joe Corroney, who has experience working in the Star Wars arena, made the piece below for charity to be sold at Denver Comic Con (which wraps up today, July 2).

See the art below.

“Carrie was originally scheduled to be a celebrity guest for the event before she passed last December,” Corroney wrote on his Facebook page. “The promoters commissioned me to create this very special artwork in her honor for their hardworking and necessary volunteers and staff.”

Corroney says the proceeds from the purchased piece will benefit Pop Culture in the Classroom, a charity which gives children a comic book based curriculum for their studies.

So, great art made for a great cause, honoring a great person. Win-win-win.

Fisher’s final on-screen appearance in the Star Wars series will be with Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which will be hitting theaters on December 15, 2017.
