RIP Ralph Mcquarrie

The great painter died, aged 82. He designed the look of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back. He also did designs for a host of other films like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Close Encounters. He lived up near where I’m from in Northern California near the Bay Area. A friend of mine who’s an artist got to spend some time with him once. Said he was a great guy.

He leaves a great legacy behind. I’ll bet his paintings fetch a bundle.
