Ralph McQuarrie remembered

Ralph McQuarrie Passes


One of the conceptual designers/artists that helped shape a couple of generations... Although most will remember him for his connection to Star Wars.

Keeping it classy, as always.

I was surprised I had not heard of him either, but it sounds like he had a very full life.

I've often said that, to the degree that there is genius in Star Wars, it's in the art/sound/costume/set design. From what I see of the man's CV, he did impressive work that is worthy of rememberance.

Ultimately, it appears that Lucas had nothing to do with anything good in SW.
