    Will Eisner, RIP (1917-2005)

    Will Eisner passed away on January 3rd, 2005 at the age of 87 following quadruple bypass heart surgery.

    More info on Eisner: http://www.newsarama.com/pages/Eisner.htm

    Eisner is very well known for a lifetime of work including Spirit and numerous other comicbooks, his illustrations and storylines where always topnotch and he captured the essence of living in a metropol like few others ever had done.

    I personally had the pleasure of meeting him twice, he was an extremely nice and pleasant man, very inspirering and friendly.
    At his visit in Copenhagen in 1996, it was arranged that he could design a mural for the city, and a 5 story building now offers one of the best art murals in Copenhagen, a classic Will Eisner drawing.

    Eisners work has inspired many graffiti artist and much of his work include letters and citylandscapes much in the same way as they are used in graffiti.
    I will miss him and his work a lot.

    Rest in Peace Will Eisner.

    Oh man, Will Eisner rocks. RIP.

    Can you get a flick of the big wall in Copenhagen? How long has it been, does anyone know, since he's done his last major project?

    Will Eisner har været en god inspiration. Han er helt vildt god til at fortælle, og så tegner han også rigtig godt. Jeg lærte en masse om kropsholdninger ved at læse hans historier. Jeg har kigget lidt på hans komposition. Han bruger også skitsestilen, og det kan jeg godt lide. Han er jo faktisk forfatter, men han pakker ikke sine historier for flot ind. Han vil hellere skitsere til historien, i stedet for at lave billeder der er så flotte, at du glemmer historien. Jeg ser Will Eisner som mesteren på det felt.
