Just got the news about Mike Wieringo... I am in shock right now. I talked with Mike just last week about working on this sketch card set I have had going for a while now...

Mike was always super nice, and as an inker, was a complete pleasure for me to ink. I consider myself privileged that I got to ink the few pieces I did over him; some of what I consider to be my best stuff-more because of his pencils than my inks.

Besides his ridiculous level of talent, Mike was a good guy, with a word of advice to many young artists- I watched how he interacted with lots of kids at HeroesCon, and they all seemed to come away with something good for the future.

I am just shocked and saddened; my prayers are with Mike's family and friends. We lost a great one.

I never met him, and now more than ever I wish I would have had the pleasure at least once.
