Inspiration: Ralph McQuarrie, Concept Artist


Ralph McQuarrie, the artist who transformed George Lucas’s  earliest scripts into lush, vivid images of intergalactic expanse and light-saber combat that became the visual core of the “Star Wars” saga, died on Saturday at his home in Berkeley, Calif. He was 82. 
     Lucas:  “Ralph McQuarrie was the first person I hired to help me envision ‘Star Wars, 
     When words  could not convey my ideas, I could always point to one of Ralph’s fabulous  
     illustrations and say, ‘Do it like this.’ ”
