Dominus Suus (1187361) writes "The concept artist who designed iconic figures in the Star Wars Trilogy, ET, Battlestar Galactica, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park and Star Trek IV, has passed away at 82. Originally a technical illustrator for Boeing in the 1960s, McQuarrie expanded into film and television. Then-unknown-director George Lucas hired McQuarrie in 1975 to design the characters who would become C-3P0, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Yoda and Darth Vader. In 1985 he shared the Academy Award for Visual Effects for his work in Ron Howard's Cocoon. He is survived by his wife Joan."
