McQuarrie Tribute

A few of us Pixarians were invited to do tribute sketches for the late great Ralph McQuarrie. These will be up in a gallery at ILM before they're donated to his wife, Joan.

Return of the Jedi was my favorite movie as a kid, and now I know that Mr. McQuarrie had a hand in everything from the cuddly Ewoks to the slobbering Gamorreans. I still think Jabba would have been better off using the badass teddy bears to guard his palace.

Beautiful work man, your pencil marks have a flow as if they were made by a brush!
