R.I.P. Ralph McQuarrie

Science Fiction has had an immeasurable influence on the work that I do and the person I am. Having been born in the 1970′s automatically makes me a member of a special group of people who got to experience Star Wars when it was fresh and new, and let me tell you, it was a powerful force on my, and many other young minds.

No small part of that was because of Ralph McQuarrie, the concept artist responsible for creating the look of some of the most famous and infamous characters in the history of Sci-fi.

Ralph passed on this week at the age of 82. With the passing of Mobius a few months back, 2012 has been a sad year me, for sci-fi, and the art world.

Thanks guys, I own you one.
