It is sad when someone so influential passes on. I am amazed at how much his art touched my life. I first came across his work 40 years ago as a teen when I bought Emerson Lake and Palmer album covers. Alien is one of my all time favorite movies. He would be one of those artists I would have loved to have coffee with.

All I can think of right now is….if you’re old and you have a choice…get rid of steep stairs in the house.

@mazingerz88 I am frankly stunned at how many old people kick the bucket from falling down. I had an 83 year old neighbor who was fit as a fiddle and would have easily lived to 90 if he did not fall off his step ladder

Xactly @Cruiser…I just finished helping a 78 year old guy recover from a backward basement stairs fall while carrying a big garden chair he had no business even picking up. Now he swears he will never be that “silly” again and was so happy and grateful he did not break his neck.

He is now planning a trip to Spain. Attaboy.

The man’s art is purely fantastic. It will live on, and in this way he will as well.

He was a remarkable talent, but I never really bonded with his art.
I see the talent and skill, but it doesn’t connect with me.
