I love finding things. You never know if something you come across is worth any money. I never really get to experience that sort of thing. I’ve found things but they are of no value. It’s just trash. That’s all I ever find. At least, that’s what I thought I would always find.
I came across a huge find when I was helping my bedridden mother clean out her attic. My mother, a huge Star Wars fan, had boxes of VHS tapes and old toys from when the first three movies came out. She never did anything with them. I am sure some of the toys belonged to my brothers and my sisters but from the condition they are in, I couldn’t pawn them off and make any money.
I wasn’t looking for money. I was just being a good son and helping out my mothers with chores inside the house. Notice how I said ‘inside the house’. I didn’t say anything about outside. The mowing of the lawn can be saved for someone else, possibly my sister.
I came to a box that wasn’t marked. All the other boxes are marked but this one is the only box with nothing on it. Inside this box, aside from dust, spiders, and newspaper clippings, I found a dozen or so drawing concepts from way back when. These drawings don’t have an artist name. I cannot give credit to who drew them. It was someone on the Star Wars team. Could it possibly have been Lucas himself? Did I find the Holy Grail of the Star Wars world!? Do I honestly have items hand drawn by George Lucas? I haven’t taken them anywhere to authenticate them as of yet. I wanted to share them with the world. Maybe I can get people talking on the web and word will spread. Maybe Lucas himself will see them and he’ll chime in with some words of wisdom and he’ll let me know that they are in fact his drawings. They were his. They are mine now. I have attached the drawings below. Take a look and drop a reply. Let me know if what I am sharing with you is real or just some lame forgery.
