Fred Burton, 1963-2006

imageFred Burton, an art student who became a bartender but kept his hand in and eventually moved to art full-time, providing the visuals for Coleman Wallace and Fort Boyard, died April 21 after a protracted illness. He also worked as a colorist on Toute une Vie. From what little I'm able to read about Burton on-line, it seems that he was charismatic and well-liked, and that his Brussels studio Stripcheese attracted a number of younger artists enthusiastic about the form. He was 42 years old. You can find a Lambiek.net entry here.
