Ralph McQuarrie – June 13, 1929 – March 3, 2012


OSWCC would like to extend our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Star Wars conceptual artist Ralph McQuarrie. He was responsible for the look and feel of many classic designs from Star Wars, and his influence can still be seen today. In fact, Mr. McQuarrie’s artwork helped convince 20th Century Fox to take a gamble on George Lucas’ dream, making him a key component in one of the most beloved franchises of all time.

Rest in peace, Mr. McQuarrie.
