Man, I am absolutely stunned by this news. I just found out that our own kuroitora died of pneumonia today.

I've known this guy since the mid-'90s. I met him through the online Bubblegum Crisis fan community, then met him in person during my visit to Baltimore in '99. I considered him a very good and loyal friend. We didn't agree much on politics, but so freaking what. He was the best artist I've ever met, and I hoped I might find a way to collaborate with him on something, someday...but I guess not.

I really can't believe this...it's just awful.

I feel like I should make one additional comment about his art, having watched his style evolve over more than 20 years. Yes, he had a great deal of talent, but that wasn't what made him the best artist I knew. That was due to self-discipline and working his ass off, constantly practicing and continually striving to improve. That's what makes the difference between "good" and "great", and it was something I always admired about him.
