Si monumentum requiris, circumspice

It has belatedly come to our attention that Ralph McQuarrie died over the weekend.

(If you don't already know who Ralph McQuarrie was, you are unlikely to care.)

Some of his concept illustrations here. Man, I wish I still had the original Star Wars Portfolio that I wheedled out of my mother when I was a kid.

  1. I saw a nice special on his work on PBS last weekend. I never knew that he acted in one of the films and they even made an action figure of his character. That's better than any Academy Award!JL
