If you haven't already heard, we lost a great on Sunday. Mike Wieringo was a guy with TONS of talent, TONS of imagination and a great sense of humor! If you're a comic book fan you would probably remember him best for his work on his own book Tellos or his run (or runs) on Fantastic Four. He kept the industry fresh, and his stylized, almost children's book style made us all wanna stop drawing impossibly ripped body builder type super heroes and start drawing some wide eyed, smiling characters without over rendering everything. He made it look easy, and if you're an artist you know that simple is anything but easy! We're gonna miss you so much Mike, it's hard to imagine the industry or the world without you.
