a few years ago at MegaCon through my friend Lan. He was beyond friendly and generally an awesome guy. I got to spend a good amount of time talking with him and Kelly at NYCC of last year (2013) and even got a few wonderful pieces of original art from him. I am truly saddened to hear of his sudden passing. My heart and prayers go out to Kelly and the rest of his family. The world has lost a talented and truly wonderful individual.
