Celebrating Star Wars stamps

A look at the artistic forces behind Royal Mail's latest special stamp collection.

 

Digital artist Malcolm Tween is the star of a new Royal Mail film celebrating the most eagerly-anticipated movie of the year.

Linney was commissioned to create this mini-documentary for the launch of a Special Stamps set featuring characters from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Official Star Wars artist Malcolm illustrated the stamps for the collection, which includes images of droids R2-D2 and BB-8, along with other heroes and villains from the next instalment of the sci-fi franchise.

Here, Malcolm shares the thrill of being part of such a high-profile project and reveals the technique involved in illustrating these iconic characters.

The stamps are on sale now and the film is released in UK cinemas on 14 December.
