Terry, Leonard, and Death by jay042 Terry, Leonard, and Death by jay042
Discworld Scribe Sir Terry Pratchett had his final appointment today.  Unfortunately Death has been rather busy of late, and had to make this a group outing.

I too was struck by this and searched to find it again.  Excellent concept, excellent execution. Thank you.

This is beautiful. You should add a watermark to this image so people can find you!
I encountered this on facebook and shared it and then started investigating to find out who the creator was.
It's just perfect. Really.
Thank you for making it.

Glad you liked it. I've been quite surprised by the Facebook response to this thing. Well over 500 shares in a day!

Thanks! I really was just taking Sir Terry's last twitter posts and expanding upon them with recent events. It's become without a doubt my most most widely seen picture (I saw it turn up on somebody's tumblr)

There's a little less magic left in the world today. Safe travels, Sir Terry. See you out there.

You've summed it right up - we keep losing the ones we can't afford to lose. Two people I cared about immensely, and who profoundly influenced my life, who were part of my life - despite never meeting either, despite the fact that they never knew I existed - both gone within a couple of weeks? It hurts.

Thank you for this tribute.

Courage, courage to us all.

Even knowing it was only a matter of time due to his illness, the news of Sir Terry's death came as an almost physical jolt.

Still, Death in the Discworld books is a rather benign figure, not so much grim as bemused by mortals' talent for packing so much confusion into their short lives, and always doing his best to protect the natural order of things. Non Timetis Messor indeed.

I conclude logically that this is a great tribute to two lovely icons. Great work!
