The Art of Ralph McQarrie
& collect
Ralph Angus McQuarrie studied at the Art Center School in Pasadena. He first worked for a dentistry firm, then for Boeing. He is best known for his work on Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983).

"George Lucas visited with his friends at my place and talked about a big space-fantasy film he wanted to do. It didn’t have a title yet....Well, a couple years went by and George did American Graffiti. I never thought I’d see him again, and then one day he called to see if I’d be interested in doing something for Star Wars....I’d sit with a pencil and dream about whatever I could imagine, sort of grotesque imagery. George would come by every week and a half or two weeks, look at what I’d done, and talk to me about what he’d like to see. I was reading the script to start with, but the script sort of got waylaid — the story was changing in his own mind — so George would just come and talk to me about what he wanted to see."
