    Can you post a source? Anyway if this is true then it's pretty fucked up, and a serious loss for the art world

    Aargh! He was still painting, still going strong at 76. It is indeed a tragedy. I've been a fan of his for years and years.

    His digital work was as amazing as his paintings, too..considering computers didn't even exist during most of his life.

    First Hunter S. Thompson, now him? What the hell is going on? My favorite figures in the arts, dropping like flies... sad news.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That......sucks.......so much......grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.


    I just ordered a book on his stuff two weeks ago. Damn....just.....damn. I'm extremely disapointed now. Of all the biomorphic/ fantastic realist artists he was one of, if not the, best.

    Its always sad when a amazing artist dies. Its not like loosing a family member or a friend but...argh...cant put it in words...We are all artists or claiming to be one and he was one of the brightest stars among us and it hurts to loose such a person...even if most of the people in this forum never knew him personally (including me)

    Hope the Police isn`t lazy and find his murderer soon
