Just found out that a great artist, Quinton Hoover, passed away early today. As one of the original and most famous artists for the CCG "Magic: The Gathering", his unique style set a special tone and inspired many artists and gamers.
He inspired me to try my hand at illustration, and on Facebook, I managed to have more than a few discussions with him; I felt I'd made a good friend there, even though I'd never met him in person.
Rest in Peace, Q. You were loved by many, and I hope your art continues to inspire others.
