Tim Hildebrandt’s White Ship Sails
Greg Hildebrandt posted this tribute to his brother yesterday:
“Tim Hildebrandt has passed away. And, with him, so has an era.
“Tim, 67, died today from complications due to diabetes. He is survived by his mother Germaine, twin brother Greg, sister Janie, wife Rita, son Charles, nieces Mary and Laura, and nephew Gregory.
“Tim was an otherworldly artist. For 47 years, his captivating work fostered the dreams and fantasies of millions of fans, young and old.”
Tim Hildebrandt’s contribution to the worlds of fantasy and science fiction simply can’t be overstated. Among his myriad of achievements, he helped forge the visual identities of Lord of the Rings and Star Wars.
