Well, I woke up today to find out that a great comic artist and person had passed yesterday from a heart attack. Mike was a great inspiration to myself and I did have the privilege to know my Mike on a personal level. I had the chance to have lunch with him on several occasions and get his advice on some of my work. I really don't have the words to say what his death means to me because in reality I don't know yet. I am still in a little shock. Mike was not a close friend but I still thought of him as a friend. His art inspired me and comforted me. He will be missed greatly. My prayers are with his family and friends.
