On Monday, May 27, 2013 a very good friend of mine, Gary Michaels, passed away. I had the great fortune of working with Gary for nearly seven years (since November, 2006), and it’s safe to say that I probably wouldn’t be working as a professional illustrator or designer if it weren’t for him. He was a truly gifted creative director and person. I’m not really sure what else to say (I’m not good at writing this kind of stuff), so as a sort of mini-memorial I’ve posted some pieces that Gary and I worked on over the years. My prayers go out to Gary’s family and friends. Above photo courtesy of Paul Landry. Farewell, Gary. You will be missed my friend.
