Although I never cared for his work and found his artwork to be terrible as it was inescapable.
I imagine there will sure;y be a tribute issue or something coming out in a few months - certainly from Aspen.

His Wizard tutorial helped me a lot with drawing.
He will be missed.
But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Unfortunatlely his artwork was very expensive so I only own two commissioned pieces by him. I had intended to get a third shortly but obviously that won't be happening now.

"I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some people out there in our nation don't have maps, and, uh, I believe that our education, like such as in South Africa and the Iraq, everywhere, like, such as. And I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., er, should help South Africa, and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future for our children."

I fell in the margins of where I didn't mind his art, it didn't have me saying wow or anything, but it sure didn't make me not want to buy the comic.
He'll be missed, especially by Marvel for variants.

or to get his signature, or a sketch.
Cherish it, knowing that for a brief moment, our lives intersected. Cherish your sketches, and autographs knowing that he created them with his hands.
a great talent has left us, the reason, we do not know.

Disturbingly true. I personally liked his work, and will miss him. R.I.P.

I can't say I was a huge fan of his art, but he was a nice guy that definately did not deserve the raw hand given to him.

They actually told us to buy them quick because we would be able to sell them on eBay for more money.
I freaking hate Lone Star...
