A bit of sad news about a teacher of mine…

Many years ago I made the acquaintance of long-time syndicated cartoonist, Larry White.

He was an illustrator with a passion for cartooning and teaching.

I once took a class with him entitled, “Careers in Cartooning” at the local art school.

This experience in my early teens opened  my heart to illustration.

We would run into each other over the ensuing years and I never failed to apprise him of my burgeoning career. It pleased him to know that my experiences in his class put me on the path that he held so dear.

I just learned that Larry has passed away at the age of 84.

Here is a link to Mr White’s obituary, if you care to read on.

I hope that I will have as much of an impact on future artists and illustrators as Larry has.

He is an example worthy of close emulation and he will be missed.

To Larry:

I speak as one of the many people whose lives you’ve touched.

God speed, sir, and thank you for all you have done.
