I'm honest to a fault, I probably love everything you hate and I'm definitely NSFW

You’d think I’d have been living in exile, in a cave on Tatooine but, I’ve only just now learned of this great mans passing.
Ralph McQuarrie literally designed the Star Wars universe, he brought Lucas’ scripts to life so that he was able to paint a better picture for studio bosses as he shopped his project around.
McQuarrie’s paintings were then used as the basis for for set designers, costumers, creature makers to bring Lucas’ vision alive on the big screen.
The Original Trilogy wouldn’t be what it is without McQuarrie’s work, he was as instrumental as Lucas in creating the Star Wars universe.

Doing a long lunch.
My lady looking glamorous as always :)
Blah blah. Wednesday. Work. Iced Coffee and 3DS before I start though :) (Taken with instagram)
Here’s a shot of the contents of the Playboy set. (Taken with instagram)
Aaaaand Playboy Cover To Cover: The 50s. Containing a ‘digital archive’, a coffee table book and a repro of the first issue. I got this so fucking cheap I was actually concerned it was *only* the CDROM archive without the book. Not so thankfully, it was brand new and still sealed. (Taken with instagram)
Okay, okay, here are my latest acquisitions. Jeux De Dames Cruelles, an old Taschen book from ‘92 documenting ‘a broad spectrum of Sado-masochistic practices’ mostly bondage and spanking. Contains a bunch of stuff from the Klaws who did the vast majority of Bettie Page’s fetish photography. (Taken with instagram)
Oh, and my copy of The Eyes of Bayonetta Artbook arrived on Friday, though I’ve only *just* opened it now. (Taken with instagram)
Aaaaand “A Pictorial History of The Talkies”, which has over 4600 pictures. (Taken with instagram)
Going shopping. (Taken with instagram)
