Meeting Star Wars artist Ralph McQuarrie

Ralph McQuarrie is a very talented artist who created the original conceptual drawings of all the main Star Wars scenes & characters, including R2-D2, working side by side with George Lucas. Michael was honored to be invited to meet him in November 2006 at his home in the Bay Area. As he was leaving, a crowd gathered on the sidewalk to see R2. Michael showed some young Star Wars fans a book of McQuarrie's sketches, and explained to him the amazing phenomenon that he helped to create. It was great that McQuarrie got to see first-hand the joy R2-D2 brings to people on a regular basis.
