Prose Before Hos 2
Ralph McQuarrie, the artist who helped George Lucas bring his vision of the Star Wars universe to life, passed away this past Saturday of complications from Parkinson’s Disease. While I realize Star Wars is a bit too new to be considered Atompunk, the films are still classic pieces of science fiction and the concept art behind them are absolutely amazing. McQuarrie also worked with CBS news to design posters for the Apollo space missions, which I can’t seem to find. More info here. Like this: Like Loading...
As many of us have grown up with Star Wars, it often saddens us that Star Wars hasn’t grown up with us. The prequel movie was designed for children, and even promising new games like The Old Republic doesn’t quite capture how gritty and brutal the series could really be. That’s where artist Kai Lim comes in. He’s stripped away all the flashy light saber fights and Jedi/Sith drama and focused purely on some of the more awesome sci-fi aspects of the series, which involve space ships and laser battles.
