Ralph McQuarrie

Here's my tribute to the great Mr McQuarrie, the Star Wars concept artist and illustrator extraordinaire who's died recently. I loved his paintings; especially the perspective-heavy scenes showing xwings and TIE fighters dukin' it out in the death star trench. I remember copying them at the time when they were reproduced in the Star Wars comics and mags - 35 years on and they're still lodged in my brain for 'go to' reference.
