Ralph McQuarrie, Star Wars Concept Artist: Tribute to a Master (Part 1)


StarWars.com has been releasing these great retrospectives on the influence of artist Ralph McQuarrie. His art was absolutely mind-blowing and fuels my imagination and love for art to this day.

Ralph McQuarrie, concept artist of the original Star Wars trilogy, was essential in bringing the characters, ships, and locales of a galaxy far, far away to life. In this special retrospective, Star Wars creator George Lucas, Industrial Light & Magic effects legend Dennis Muren, and many others discuss the impact of McQuarrie, his artistic gifts, and his legacy.

This is part of the Ralph McQuarrie tribute Dreams and Visions Press produced for Star Wars Celebration VI in 2012, drawing from interviews conducted for a feature length documentary on Ralph McQuarrie that is currently in production.
