    Joe Jonson pen and ink drawings are incredibly rare and hard to come by. His illustrations have been published in many of the Star Wars related books and magazines over the last thirty years and were instrumental in setting up some of the desing elemnets for the films. It is believd this sketch is circa 1975.
