Ralph McQuarrie was an inspirational artist. His works have been inspiring many people around the world for years, and while he is most known for his contribution on Star Wars, he has worked in numerous other films as well. He has always had his own rather unique style that is simply lovely to look at, and the detailing is amazing.
McQuarrie’s works has always been inspirational for me. At times when I’ve felt the block, looking at his paintings and sketches gives me new ideas and breathes life to a dried mind. The shapes, the lights and the colours dance in his art, creating more than a live image. His works tell more then a tens of thousands words.
You will be missed, McQuarrie. You left a piece of yourself to this world in your art. This is a legacy we all will cherish. Today, I will rise my glass in your memory.
