An Artist puts down his pen.....

Farewell Ralph McQuarrie
The world lost a true artist and visionary.
Some of you may not know him by name, but would recognize and have seen some of his
brilliant art.
Ralph McQuarrie isn't only an artist, he is a legend,
Ralph McQuarrie has become a house hold name over the last few decades as
he is responsible for bringing George Lucas dream alive.
Ralph McQuarrie created the concept art for the first Star wars trilogy.
If it wasn't for Ralph McQuarrie the characters we have watched, known and love
would not have been the same from
Darth Vader, Chewbacca ( Han Solo's fuzzball Co pilot )
and the cheeky adorable R2D2....
The planets Hoth and Tatoonie or Cloud City might have never existed,
Thank you Ralph McQuarrie for bringing our Imaginations to life xx

" A fun fact on Ralph McQuarrie is he is in The Empire Strikes Back,
Uncredited in the opening scene at Hoth's echo base he plays General Pharl McQuarrie,
there is an action figure in his likeness."
