Steve Whitaker

I have just learnt that British artist and colourist Steve Whitaker is no longer with us.

I don't know many details except that he died on Thursday after becoming unwell, but at this point I just want to say how sorry I am so sorry to hear this.

I had known Steve for over 20 years, although not as well as some of the regular readers of this web site.

He was an extraordinary talent who will be so missed. I will post more later.

I was very sad to hear about Steve. Unforunately I didn't know him personally, but I knew of his reputation as a colourist etc.
My sincere condolences to his family and friends.
