To Ralph

I wanted to take a bit of time to say thank you to a man I never met, but to whom I owe much.  Ralph McQuarrie's work on the original Star Wars was a constant inspiration during my time at Lucasfilm and I still look to it every now and then to find that I'm as enchanted today as I was when I first saw it long ago.  There may not be another artist with a legacy as deeply embraced by so many people in so many cultures, so it is with fondness that I look back on the artwork of a man that will undoubtedly inspire for generations to come.
