Losing heroes

This is what getting older is, isn't it?  I mean at my stage in life. Losing heroes.  

I feel like I just got to this party. I've been blogging about art, science and atheism for almost 5 years, and seriously reading about atheism another 5 before that.  I just got here, and one of the most interesting guests had to go.

Feeling selfish this morning. I want to take the day, eschew my professional responsibilities and do a proper portrait of the man to make up for dawdle of a sketch I did when I heard the news in the middle of the night.

I like what you did with just showing the upper half of the drawing. Well done.

Thanks Mike. As I noted, it was hastily sketched when I heard the news, and not a fitting tribute. The eyes were the best part, and I captured his signature wavy hair. :-)
