Star Wars designer Ralph McQuarrie dead at 82

Ralph McQuarrie, the artist and designer instrumental in creating the look of Star Wars has passed away yesterday at the age of 82.  Ralph was instrumental in bringing A New Hope to the big screen, as George Lucas used his concept art and drawings to show studios in an effort to get his movie made.  He truly was a talented and respected man, and will certainly be missed.
