Memento Mori: Blair Kitchen

Hi, Everybody!


So, looking through the AMOCave, I DON'T have what I thought I did regarding Blair Kitchen.

We'll get to that, but first:

Blair's Funeral details. (I thought it was the obituary, but that's not up.)

And articles from the web. (A tip of the shiny metal helmet to Oliver Simonsen for posting these on the Cerebus Facebook group.)

And I know I post a lot of links to various things the buy or support, but this one is a go fund me for Blair's family. If you can, please give a couple bucks if you're able.

Okay, I met Blair at the S.P.A.C.E. Con (possibly in 2010, possibly earlier. This is where the AMOCave fails me.) At the 2010 show, he and his brother Mike (the creator of Spy Guy) drew me: The. Greatest. Damn. Thing. Ever!
Click to have your eyeballs melted with awesomeness!!!!!
(I coloured Iguana.)

I sent Dave a copy in 2014, and he responded:
Hey look, "A Moment of Cerebus" (this counts.)
I THOUGHT I had pictures of Blair and Mike at S.P.A.C.E., but all I got are two bad photos of Blair from when we went to the Sausage Haus:

That's Blair and Margaret. He didn't look that bad in Real Life...

And here he is with Margaret (who's taking my wife's picture,) and Steve Peters.
R.I.P. Blair.

My sincerest condolences to his family and friends. I'm so sorry for their loss. I had a great time with him, Mike K, and Dave in Kitchener just last summer, and he seemed to be doing well. Just from the few times I met him, it was obvious what a great guy he was, very funny and insightful.

Once again, my sincerest condolences to his family.

supporting his family ==>

Thank you
