Nice to see he rated a respectful obit in the New York Times.
I spoke to him once, about fifteen years ago. A mutual friend had put him in touch. He called, wanting advice on how to break into movie storyboarding. Talk about overqualified! I tried not to gush.
Quite the film buff, I gather from an interview I read. I can see why he would've wanted to do a little bit of that, even in the Autumn of a career. I wonder if he did.
The most painterly penciller in comics, this side of Everett Raymond Kinstler. Always a sense of directional light, body movement, windblown leaves, splashing water, flowing drapery, impressionistic but convincing architectural ornament. Glamorous, realistically drawn women.
I admired him.
