CLASSIC McQUARRIE: CLOUDY STAR-FLIGHT
High above the jungles around the Massassi temple of Yavin IV, a lone Rebel sentry dutifully watches Rebel X-wing fighters depart skyward for battle against the Death Star, in this lovely piece of conceptual art from Ralph McQuarrie, from 1975, for the original STAR WARS.
Look out for more of McQuarrie's evocative art, as well as that of Joe Johnston, Doug Chiang and others of such tremendous reputation and luminary skill within the upcoming UK publication of the next book in the ABRAMS series of STAR WARS: ART books: Concept, available from October 1st. We'll be reviewing it soon.
