3DAD 028 : Discussion on Ralph McQuarrie's Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek illustrations with John Scoleri
Today we are speaking for the second time with long time associate and supporter of Ralph McQuarrie and his work, John Scoleri. Find out in Session 25 of the podcast how John became involved in meeting and helping to promote Ralph’s work.
Ralph McQuarrie was the concept artist for a number of strong iconic movies aside from Star Wars, including - Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind, raiders of the lost ark, E.T., Jurassic Park, the 1978 Battlestar Galactica series and Star Trek’s “Planet of the Titans” film which was cancelled at the script stage. I mention these examples since not everyone is aware of the impact that Ralph had outside of the Star Wars arena and a new book that John Scoleri and Stan Stice hopes to publish called “The Art of Ralph McQuarrie : Archives Art book showcases the best work of Ralph’s career throughout.
John has created a Kickstarter campaign for this unique book, so take a look at the video on Kickstarter.com that will give a preview of the artwork that is likely to be included in the book. Searching for Ralph McQuarrie will get you to that particular campaign.
