I was stunned by the news this morning....really sad because he was so talented....though I didn't like his concept R2-D2 and C-3PO.

Thanks for posting. I wasn't aware of the artist, but after a quick google it seems his designs are burned very memorably into my childhood.

Will have to spend some more time going through his galleries, there's some amazing stuff.

RIP indeed.

Damn, I only just spotted this, a very sad loss indeed. I have an original work of his somewhere...bet that will be worth a packet in years to come.
