We're very excited to announce our latest Star Wars project featuring our very own BB-8! To celebrate the launch of The Force Awakens on DVD, cast members, celebrities and artists have been asked to design their own version of BB-8. Contributors include stars of The Force Awakens; Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill and Simon Pegg, plus Star Wars stalwarts Anthony Daniels, Warwick Davis and a range of British artists including jewellers, graffiti artists, sculptors and yours truly!
Our BB-8 is from a parallel galaxy far, far away, and takes on the characteristics of the lush plant and animal life on a fantasy planet, all hand-drawn in coloured pencil. Watch the creation of the droid in the time-lapse film made by talented Will Nicholls below...
Come along to the public exhibition from Tuesday 19th - Thursday 21st April at White Rainbow Gallery, 47 Mortimer Street, London, and see (and bid for) the creations yourself!
The initiative will raise vital funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity with a number of the designed BB-8s being auctioned off for charity via an online auction from 18th April 7pm to 21st April at 11.59pm. 100%* of the proceeds from this auction will be donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, on behalf of Force For Change.
