First Ralph McQuarrie (the conceptual artist who birthed the look of Star Wars) now Moebius, who was the creative genius behind part of the look of the original Alien movie (spacesuits and Nostromo interiors), as well as the original Tron and The Fifth Element, and his famous comic strips which ran in the magazine Heavy Metal, (which he co-founded) has left us. There is a write up at aintitcoolnews.com here:

You and me both.
Never regret money spent on old books, old dogs or old friends.
