This is terrible. I've been over at his blog for hours. There is so much amazing stuff I only barely remember form the nineties. Stuff from RAW; stuff from MTV. I swear Sala created a whole magazine illustration style that been in business ever since.Rest in peace. What a bummer.
The Chuckling Whatist was a work of genius, as was all his work. I'm a long time fan. I'm in shock.
This is absolutely terrible news. He was my favorite artist. Several years ago I commissioned him to make an original watercolor painting for me. It is beautiful and it is even more special to me now. Ugh. What a loss!
It's a real talent when you can be cartoon-y and horrible at the same time, as in this picture. Something Davis was great at, and that's good company! RIP Mr. Sala.
And we're not even halfway through 2020 yet... :(
Sala is probably the only artist whose style I can immediately recognise. This is very much not good especially because he was relatively young and had at least a couple of decades of drawing ahead of him.
A loss for people that like comic art with an original look and feel.
