And without him, a lot of the iconic visuals just don't exist. Things like Vader's mask, Stormtrooper uniforms, Death Star interiors, etc, etc. I would love to get my hands on some prints of his artwork.
His art is fantastic. It is too bad Lucas did not involve Lawerence Kasdan in the writing of the screenplays for the prequels...they would have been so much better. Kasdan worked on Empire and Jedi. Leigh Brackett wrote the first draft of the Empire screenplay, and her work is generally praised as the best work screenplay wise in the trilogy, but she died shortly after finishing the first draft, as I recall, and Kasdan did the most work on the edits and rewrites thereafter.
