I am posting a final update here for my sister, whom you know as Hakubaikou.  I had meant to do this sooner, but it's been very difficult for me.  As some of you may have heard, Hakubaikou recently passed away in a car accident.  Her death was instant, and she did not suffer any pain.

My sister loved art, and she loved interacting with everyone on this site, and meeting fellow artists at the conventions.  I remember when she first discovered the online art community.  She didn't have any local friends who were into drawing, and she was just giddy that she could meet so many other artists, right from her room.  And of the people she met, many became good friends, as close to her as any other.  I know for certain that my sister was very happy with her life, especially in recent years, and I thank you all for being a part of it.

As for this gallery, my family is retaining all rights to my sisters artwork, and I kindly ask people not to alter, repost, or publish my sister's artwork in any way.  Her drawings were very personal to her, and she took great care to make them look exactly as she envisioned.  And we ask that you respect her works as they were intended to be seen, here and on her own website. That said, we are leaving the gallery available for anyone to view and enjoy, and any proceeds from print sales will go towards a scholarship fund, set up in her name. (Details will be posted here at a later time.)

Edit:
A link for those of you who asked about making direct donations to the scholarship fund... www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?…
The exact details are still being worked out.  But the eligible recipients will be women in the USC film school, aspiring to become cinematographers.  (The fund is being organized by some of my sister's closest friends from film school.)
