A royal tribute to Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia for Denver Comic Con

Create Your Own Eberron D&D Adventures @ Dungeon Masters Guild

Before her death late last year, Carrie Fisher was originally scheduled to appear at the Denver Comic Con taking place this weekend, June 30 through July 2, at the Colorado Convention Center.

Joe Corroney, an artist and illustrator who frequently does work for Lucasfilm, has created a piece of memorial tribute artwork that honors Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia persona at various stages throughout her life and adventures. The artwork incorporates a stunning Annie Leibovitz image of General Organa that recently graced one of the cover variants of Vanity Fair for its coverage of Star Wars: Episode VIII — The Last Jedi, as well as appearances from the original trilogy and Episode VII — The Force Awakens.

“The promoters commissioned me to create this very special artwork in her honor for their hardworking and necessary volunteers and staff,” Corroney said when debuting the piece on Facebook. And if you look closely in the upper right, the artist teased, you will notice nods to Leia’s Naboo heritage (via her mother, former queen and Old Republic Senator Padme Amidala).

Corroney is appearing at Denver Comic Con, where he will have a booth in Artists Alley.
