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.
