The Best Part of Star Wars: Ralph McQuarrie

by jfjudah

Concept Ships: Good-bye Mr. Ralph McQuarrie.

The best part of Star Wars was not the dialogue or the trade agreements, it was the place to which we were transported, the archetypes we relate to, and the unbelievable vision we were shown. As an artist, illustrator, and matte painter, Ralph McQuarrie — now gone — was a major part of that experience, as well as a gallery of a few other science fiction pieces you may be familiar with.
