Ralph McQuarrie’s art

Ralph Mcquarrie 14

Good-bye Mr. Ralph McQuarrie.

Sadly, We lost a big legend in the Sci-Fi concept art world yesterday. Mr. Ralph McQuarrie has passed away at the age of 82. I’ve always wanted to meet him as he was probably the most talented traditional illustrator (and matte painter) of our time. Please enjoy this compilation of Ralph’s Star Wars concept art work. May his paintings live on forever on this planet and perhaps eventually spread to galaxies far, far away. We will miss you.

  1. Somewhere in my youth my father purchased a set of 25 or 30 Empire Strikes back prints of Ralph McQuarrie’s artwork. Until a recent move, they were hanging up on the wall. I think it’s time they went up again. 🙂
