    Star Wars Illustrations Group of 5 by Bruce Timm (1980-81). The consignor of this lot has told us he made custom Jedi Light Sabers in the early 1980s as a teenager. He said he accepted artwork of Star Wars characters on 8" x 11" acetate clear sheets done from the hand of young Bruce Timm in exchange for a Light Saber. The lot includes those pieces, some of the earliest artwork from DC Animated Universe legend Mr. Bruce Timm we have seen. Included in this group of early artwork are Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Darth Vader, Han Solo, and the Millennium Falcon fighting a TIE Fighter, with a hand-painted background on a separate piece of acetate. Five pieces in this lot (including the custom background); three are dated 1981, while Han is dated 1980. The cel of Luke was signed at the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con by Mr. Timm at his booth. It is his familiar signature known to animation fans worldwide. Very unique group, showing the early artistic roots of one of the most important people in the history of television animation. Fine condition.
