Steve Zieser - RIP

For those of you that have followed my blog for some time you are aware of the Our Favorite Artists posts that I have done in the past, well today I am sad to inform you that Steve Zieser, one of my favorite artists and an interviewee for the site has passed away after a ten year battle with cancer. 

Steve helped to inspired me to get back into art after after seeing his wonderful cover for the Labyrinth Lord Referee screen and his many other D&D themed pieces. I will always be thankfull to him for the inspiration and for taking the time to answer my questions.

My heart is heavy to hear of his passing, my condolences to all his friends and family, you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
