Tim was a fantastic artist who along with his twin brother, Greg, became famous for the Lord of the Rings paintings and calandars as well as the famous posters and painting for Star Wars among many, many works of art. A great loss to the artistic community.
Tim Hildebrandt Remembered
June 29, 2006
Twin Sons of Star Wars
For millions of fans around the world, the Star Wars poster that Tim and Greg Hildebrandt created in 1977 became the definitive illustration of that galaxy far, far away. It's an exciting, vibrant and unforgettable image that is even more astonishing when you realize that it was created in just 36 hours. While it's only one of countless beautiful pieces of art that Tim created in his life -- including hundreds of other inspired Star Wars illustrations -- the Star Wars poster is truly iconic and will always loom large in the imagination. We will miss Tim's artistry and talents tremendously.
