Yeah, I hate to agree with thegreatshaggy below....but I think Ka may have gotten taken by the typhoons. :(
I talked with him sometimes via email when discussing commissions. He was a nice guy, real helpful and kind. It saddens me a lot to think he's gone. He had talent, talent I certainly don't have and I wish he could've gone on to use it for work on comics or something bigger than deviantart. A career! If ever someone deserved it I feel Ka did.
Miss ya brother.
They had some terrible typhoons around the time he went silent and that ass of a leader they have is basically a damn dictator. I feel horrible and did come to enjoy talking with Ka. I hope one day he reappears just to let us all know he's okay but yeah it sucks.
If he has moved on to greener pastures then I wish him nothing but the best! But, I sadly doubt it.
You are/were an amazing artist Ka!
