Truly a loss to the art world. I remember seeing examples of some concept work he was doing at S.C.A.D. where he did faint marker layouts on one side so when you flipped them over the backgrounds had a cool ink-washed effect. I immediately started collecting and following his work. I am always inspired by his work, from his insanely detailed backgrounds and some great sequential storytelling, to all his concept/character design work. I was hoping this was just a joke. His talent was intimidating but always exciting and inspiring.
