Some of you may know of Frank Hettick. He was one of the people who helped kick start this place, and he even had a few tutorials in the tutorials section. Nevertheless, he was a great space artist (1952-2009) that received many awards, and he loved what he did. (Frank's web site: Sky High Gallery
.) He was a great influence in the space art community at large, and he will continue to be for a very long time.
To me he was someone who I could look up to, as a friend and as a mentor. He introduced me into the IAAA, and inspired me to take my hobby more seriously.
This thursday morning he passed away in his sleep. He will definitely be remembered, and his memories will be cherished!
May He Rest In Peace,
