Andrew DeGraff!  With the new Star Wars film coming out there has been a lot of GREAT fan art appearing everywhere.  However, Andrew DeGraff's "movie map" of all six Star Wars films is beyond SPECTACULAR!   "Paths of the Jedi and Sith” took over 600 hours to create and might be the GREATEST Star Wars fanart ever created!  This MASTERPEICE is being showcased in  Gallery1988's "Art Awakens" auction.

From Gallery 1988's site:
"Featuring top professional and emerging artists, the exhibit will be auctioned off in the name of Star Wars: Force for Change to benefit UNICEF Kid Power. The show's original pieces will be up for auction through eBay's Giving Works, along with select prints for sale. Additionally, 7 screenprints will be available exclusively in-store during the weekend-long gallery event. "
From Andrew DeGraff's site:
"This map represents all locations and every Jedi Knight and Sith Lord's path trajectory (as well as every spaceship/vehicle they travel in that is heavily featured) from ALL 6 Star Wars movies."
" I left out some players who factor only lightly in the events leading up to fall of the republic (especially Jedi like Kit Fisto, Ki-Adi-Mundi and Plo-Koon mostly since they die on planets Neimoidia and Mygeeto, which also don’t really factor into the tale). A big part of doing this was showing lineage - not only of the Skywalker family and the Jedi and Sith over a generation, but the technology and ships as well. So much of this is an homage to not only to George Lucas and the cinematic teams under Kershner and Marquand, but to Ralph McQuarrie as well. As an illustrator, it’s been incredibly fun to really delve into the concept designers of the prequels, conceptually backtracking the incredible Ralph McQuarrie, and to tie the two back together in an unbroken lineage. Children of generations past dreamed of flying saucers, we dreamed of TIE fighters. Thanks Ralph!"
