On Saturday March 3rd, 2012, one of our film design giants passed away.
Ralph McQuarrie was 82.
"I've loved Ralph since I was eleven years old in 1977. I can't believe my good fortune to have met him and become friends. He'll always have a special place in my heart and his creativity will live on through the countless artists he has inspired over the years.
May his creative Force be with us always."
May the Spirit of Creativity be with you all year...
