David Yee and Ralph McQuarrie. Yee took some of McQuarrie's most iconic illustrations from Star Wars films and put then into one awesome tribute to the late concept artist.
He's a professional concept artist who's worked on blockbuster films like Star Trek (2009), Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005) Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008).
