I'm shocked to hear of Steve Whitaker's death, far far too early. I knew him from B-APA, Caption, the London Cartoon Center, and working on the design of Comics Forum. Most recently we'd been posting each other comments on photos, artwork, etc. His last flickr posting was a superb vectorization of a naff photo I'd taken. He was incredibly gifted visually, with a superb eye for colour, a steady brush hand, and a Toth-like sense of where to put the perfect line. Goodbye Steve.
