is a fabulous conceptual artist best known for his work on the Star Wars
films. His new webpage showcases his art from the past 25+ years. He now has Parkinson's and cannot draw anymore, but it is an amazing site.

MacSaber! Turn Your Mac Into a Jedi Weapon.
I cannot explain how much fun I had slashing co-workers with a laptop today.
