Sadly comic book artist, Mike Wieringo, passed away this Sunday of a sudden heart attack. Wieringo was 44 years old.

John Siuntres of the excellent World Balloon has posted a tribute to the life and career of Wieringo, an interview from 2005.

I'm not that big a comics fan and don't really know his work but he was a very active member on the Drawing Board Forum. You could almost guarantee there'd be a comment with that lush tiger face avatar, and he would always be positive and full of praise.

When it's so easy to be a bastard, especially if you're near the top of the tree, he always made the effort to be helpful and encouraging.
