one of the greatest fantasy artists of all time has passed away. the art world has not only lost a great, it has taken a step closer to mediocrity and banality. real, focused, obsessive, physical artists are disappearing, and less and less physical artists are replacing them. computers are doing wonderful things for the world, but they are doing more damage than good to art i think. i am sad tonight.
good bye sir, i will strive to learn from your work, and hope to become half the artist you were. i don't know if there's an afterlife, but if there is, i hope there's paint in it
