Remembering Ralph McQuarrie

Good Morning Bloggers.

You might not know his name but you will definitely know his work. Ralph McQuarrie, The man who first designed Darth Vader, C3-PO and R2-D2 sadly passed away this weekend. 

A hero to many Ralph spent his years working on some of the greatest films ever made from Close Encounters to E.T. Not only this, Ralph worked as a draftsman on such aviation projects as the development of the Boeing 747 as well as creating artist's impressions of NASA's Apollo space missions. 

Ralph will be remembered for a great deal of his work, however perhaps nothing in his portfolio is more iconic the mask of Darth Vader. 

Here are just a few of his most memorable creations.....

RIP Ralph, you will be missed
