RIP Illustrator Noriyoshi Ohrai

We wanted to pay our respects to the incredibly talented Japanese artist Noriyoshi Ohrai, who passed away yesterday. You may not know his name, but you've most likely seen his work. Born in 1935, Ohrai illustrated a wide variety of works, such as pulp fiction covers, history books, video games and Hollywood blockbusters such as Star Wars and eight of the Godzilla movies. He first really made a name for himself with his art for the international Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back poster. Here are some of our favorites of his most well known pieces, RIP Noriyoshi Ohrai...

Amen to that. A good long life with lots of contributions
to his chosen field and obviously something he loved to do.
Can't ask for more.
