R.I.P. Ryan August

Lil' Rider.

I just found out that Ryan August of I Want Your Skull passed away on July 11th. I'm stunned. I really wished I had met him in person. He encouraged me to contribute to the first issue of IWYS, and the result is above. Anytime I saw a new issue or a blog post with amazing skull-themed artwork, I felt bad that I didn't draw skulls regularly, and I still do. I'm just thankful that I was able to be involved in a project that got better with each issue. He pushed the quality every time, as did the people that provided the content.
Wherever you're at right now, Ryan, I know you're kicking ass in some fashion. R.I.P.
