RIP David Trampier 1954-2014

I've written here a few times how much I admired Dave Trampier. His passing drives home the fact we'll never see a new piece of art from his brilliant hand, unless (I hope) there is some secret stash of unpublished art somewhere that will someday be revealed.

He was a great one, perhaps the best artist of the early 1st edition era, and sadly his art career ended too soon. But I hope he found peace and happiness as a taxi driver. I can say from my own experience that being a delivery driver while in college was one of my favorite jobs, so I can kind of understand.

You can leave a message on his obituary to say how much his work meant to you:
