For McQuarrie

Jawa Mining Camp, done today in Photoshop. All painting, no photo mashing. I always thought this would be a cool scenario, and probably happened many times across Tattooine. McQuarrie inspired...

Last weekend we lost one of the great artists that helped shape the star wars universe. Ralph McQuarries work was an inspiration to countless artists, fans, and general population. He , as well as other great artists, worked for years developing the iconic imagery that lives on in all our imaginations. He will live forever through his work, and the legacy of all the entertainment projects he worked on (especially star wars, but he worked on so many movies and shows its ridiculous how far his artistic reach was).

Unfortunatly this past week we lost the great French comic book/surrealist Moebius as well..

RIP Ralph McQuarrie (1929-2012)
RIP Jean Giraud-Moebius (1938-2012)

Let us all draw in tribute to them, and all the inspiration they have given us!

Carlo Arellano has done a piece in support of both Ralph and Moebius!
Darren Quach has a sweet Star Wars themed tribute!
