I haven't seen anyone else announcing this on a brief skim of my LJ, so...

October 26, at 4 PM... Mr Keith Parkinson passed.

Mr Parkinson was one of my early idols; I saw his art on book covers and on glossy gaming packages, and he was one of the earliest influences on my concept of fantasy art.

Rest in peace, sir. You will live on in memory.

Good grief... I hadn't heard. And he wasn't that old!

Damn...

Only 46. :(

Evidently, he's been battling leukemia for some time.. I had no idea. :(

I'd met him in '98 or '99, at GenCon. He was really nice, and considering the differences in our abilities, quite tactful when viewing my work. A class act.
