I just learned that we lost one of our greatest artists today. As reported by Locus Online and Tor, Darrell K. Sweet passed away this morning. He was one of the most recognizable artists in the field. I grew up reading books he illustrated, and he was a personal favorite of mine. I'll post a more personal eulogy sometime in the next day or so. It's late, and this is one I want to take my time with. Darrell K. Sweet, 1934-2011; he will be missed.
