Deviant Friday - In Memoriam

Okay, not technically a Deviant Friday, because this has nothing to do with DeviantArt. Instead, I thought I'd honor some of the artists who passed away in 2011. If I missed anyone on this list, let me know in the comments and I'll add them to the shrine. R.I.P to them all, best wishes for those they left behind who are missing them terribly, and a hearty thank you for all the wonders they introduced to the rest of us through their art.

On a personal note, I'd like to honor my uncle, George Stater, who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly earlier this year. I love him dearly, and everyone who knew him will miss him keenly in the years to come.


  1. Damn, man, this is depressing.

  2. I'm sorry about your uncle, man this years was tough on illustrator's.

  3. May they rest in peace.

    Anyway, Jim "Keep on the Borderlands" Roslof is missing.

  4. Matt, may you and your family be comforted in your loss, and may he +RIP.

  5. That Darrell K Sweet one is great.

  6. The passing of an artist weakens us as a species, just as the birth of one strengthens us.
