    Ralph McQuarrie: Illustrator DVD Release at C2
    Wed, May 01, 02 01:05:20 PM EDT
    I wanted you to be the first to know about a special project we'll be releasing at Celebration 2 this weekend.
    ralphmcquarrie.com is proud to announce the DVD release of Ralph McQuarrie: Illustrator, a never before seen 80 minute interview with Star Wars conceptual artist Ralph McQuarrie. In this exclusive interview, Ralph discusses his life and work, from his early days at Boeing and creating animations for the television coverage of the Apollo space missions to his first meetings with George Lucas and his work on the Star Wars trilogy. Ralph also talks about his work on other films (including Battlestar Galactica, Close Encounters, ET, and Raiders of the Lost Ark), his working method, and his advice for aspiring artists. As a bonus, the DVD features a gallery of McQuarrie's book cover concept artwork and selected personal etchings.
    The regular edition of the DVD will be available for $15. In addition, we are offering a limited edition of 100 copies in an etched, numbered tin that also includes 9 exclusive postcards of McQuarrie artwork and a signed metal trading card for $40. We expect these will sell out quickly, and as we recognize that not all fans will be able to make it to Celebration 2, we are holding back 20 copies of the limited edition to be put on sale on ralphmcquarrie.com shortly after our return from the show. The regular edition will also be available on the website after the 6th.
    We invite everyone to stop by our booth at Celebration 2 to check out the DVD and our other Ralph McQuarrie offerings, as well as to send a message to Ralph by signing our guest book. Ralph was really touched by all the messages we brought back from Denver in 99, and we hope to bring home even more good wishes this year! We look forward to seeing you all in Indianapolis.
