Artists Pay Homage to the Legendary Carrie Fisher

Artist homages of Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia

The year 2016 has seen many legends lost, and we’re left mourning their passing while celebrating their legacy. Before the end of this tumultuous trip around the sun, we lost another incredible human being: Carrie Fisher. Best known for playing Princess Leia in the Star Wars film franchise, the actor, author, and mental health advocate died 60 years young on December 27 after suffering a heart attack.

For many people, Princess Leia was their first introduction to Fisher’s fearlessness and wit—characteristics that translated into her off-screen life. She was quick to point out double standards women faced in Hollywood, spoke openly about her struggles with mental illness, and empowered her fans to stand up for themselves in the face of adversity. Although Princess Leia might be her most memorable role, Fisher’s other contributions will continue to inspire for a long time to come.

As fans react to the news of Fisher’s passing, some have channeled their grief into artwork. Fine artists and illustrators have paid homage to her through Princess Leia, often using the iconic outfit to say their final goodbyes. See how these talented (and clearly affected) artists have paid tribute to the legendary Carrie Fisher.
