all our friends, I have some sad news. Ian's and my mother Sheilah
Beckett passed away yesterday. it was quick and I feel peaceful. she was
about to go and work on a piece on the computer, my brother went to
turn it on and came to get her and she was gone. So she was working
right up to the end! So if you do something creative keep doing it and
think of her,or look at some of her work and think good thoughts and
know how much it meant to her that people loved her work.
If you'r not already familiar with her work please check out Leif Peng's post on her by clicking HERE. And make sure to pick up Illustration Magazine 38 for a great selection of her work in print.
