I heard today that a fellow artist, Mike Wieringo passed away on Sunday, August 12.
I didn't know Mike, but we had friends in common. Other local artists who work in comics, and share a passion for drawing and storytelling. He was only 44 years old, too young.
I knew his work a little, and liked it. It was different than mine, a lot more kid friendly, and full of life and fun. I showed some to my son, and he really liked it too.
Here is a sample of his drawing, to see more, go here: http://www.mikewieringo.com/
