    I just saw this on facebook, very sad.

    George Lucas response:
    May the force be with you.

    The imagination of millions was affected by his art. Rest in well earned peace.

    I'm very saddened by this, I can't imagine how I'll feel when more and more pieces from the Star Wars universe pass away.
    You'll be sorry, Pee-Wee Herman!

    Where "text" & "friend" are (n) & "fail" is (v)
    I've always said, the most important people to the SW universe were:
    1. George Lucas
    2. John Williams
    3. Ralph McQuarrie
    4. Ben Burtt
    5. Irvin Kershner

    Sad. Here's what his website said:

    You created so many wonders that will always live in our hearts.

    We'll miss you Ralph. You will forever be the brightest star in our galaxy.

    It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the passing of Ralph McQuarrie.

    People say you should never meet your heroes. Ralph was the exception to that rule. We were all fans of his amazing art long before we were blessed with his friendship. But once you got to know Ralph it was impossible not to become a fan of Ralph the man.

    Ralph was a very special person for many more reasons than his undeniable brilliance with a brush. He was an especially kind, sensitive, deep, modest, funny and fascinating gentleman. And as fine a role model as any one could have wished for.

    His influence on design will be felt forever. There's no doubt in our hearts that centuries from now amazing spaceships will soar, future cities will rise and someone, somewhere will say...

    "that looks like something Ralph McQuarrie painted."
    I predict that the upcoming Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi film will include the word "and." Multiple times.

    RIP Moebius:

    And now two huge artists have gone so close together...

    Thanks for the link. All I really knew about the guy previously was that his works were a big influence on costume and set design on the original Alien movie, the spacesuits in particular. Its sad to see the people who helped make some of my favorite movies passing away.

    Somewhere between the delta and the core
    TREVOR JONES. Who you say? One of my recent Academy students who worked for us briefly at the Sheriff's Office and then moved to the city PD. I'm in total shock as are all my colleagues.

    Way too young! Thank you for your service and dedication. Rest well.
    ¡Que la fuerza te acompañe!
