RIP: Ralph McQuarrie
The man most responsible for the look and feel of the Star Wars universe has died. McQuarrie brought us X-Wings, cloud cars, Stormtroopers, Darth Vader, and the droids he was looking for.
Ain't It Cool News has a writeup with lots of conceptual art from McQuarrie's Star Wars, Empire, Jedi and Battlestar Galactica.
McQuarrie's own site features a gallery of his work with the American space program during the Apollo missions.
