No, not that way.I learned last night that Drew Hayes, writer/artist of Poison Elves (more links at the end) died of a heart attack March 21st. He was a whopping 37 years old, and left behind a young daughter.
I had multiple email conversations with Drew many years ago. He was a right bastard. He was also a truly sweet guy. When I first read about his passing, I cried. Yep. Got a problem with that? Then lets step outside, son.
It made me think…a lot. He left behind a legacy of words, and art. What have I done to be remembered for? For that matter, who will remember me? Will “I” live on through time, or simply drift away, fragments of a person who most never knew?
Some things clicking through my brain, and a new resolve to create and promote.
Goodbye, Drew. And thanks for everything….you fucker.

So, Drew Hayes is really dead. I had seen something to that effect in the last Poison Elves comic I bought. I still can’t believe it. I’ve been enjoying his work ever since he was printing in Mulehide Graphics. I don’t know what upsets me more, the fact that I really enjoed his work and wanted him to continue or that he was the same age I am. Well, thanks for confirming it. I’m sorry to see him go.
Thanks for popping in. Yes, Drew did leave us. The story remains undone, but that means Lusipher will never die. I suspect Drew is hanging out, shooting the shit with Paratinchin.
He was actually younger than I am by a couple of years. Made me think…alot.
