    owh, didn't read it yet. Really too bad, he did some brilliant pieces ... I definitely have to look into some of my old fantasy artbooks to marvel over those again .... thanks for posting

    I didn't know he had died either but I certainly remember those pics. :-/

    I thought I had dreamt it way back but I guess I didn't. Definitively the most influential artist in the genre. I watched a program on him on the Ovation channel some time ago and it was very interesting. I started my dancing girl after that show as an homage to him so I guess I had better finish it.

    Yeah, it was a sad day for fans and artists alike. Heavy Metal magazine (September issue) has a nice little two page article detailing some of the highlights of his career. Of all the fantasy and sci-fi artists out there, he was, by and far, my favorite.

    When nothing is going right and you can't find someone else to blame, start beating your head against the wall, 'cause it'll feel so much better when you stop.

    he will be missed - he made some great art - and I'm guessing that all of us (at least those over 30) have seen his art and been inspired to read and play and draw.
