Nick Dewar, 1973-2010

We received the very sad news today that noted illustrator Nick Dewar passed away. He was an amazing talent who worked with so many SPD members. His wonderfully brilliant illustrations and strong spirit and creative genius will be missed.

His artist rep Kate Larkworthy has the following posted on her Facebook page:
Nick Dewar--what a lovely man and dedicated friend. I can't believe he is gone in body but never, ever, ever in spirit. They surely threw away the mold when they made Nick. Those of us who were lucky to know him will have a void in our lives forever. Nick is survived by his wife, Sri.

A small family service will be held in Newport Beach later this week. A memorial service will be held in New York at a later date. Contributions can be made in Nick's name to radio station WFMU New Jersey.
Visit Nick Dewar's website for a great memorial to him, and his collection of brilliant work.

We encourage SPD folks to leave thoughts and remembrances of Nick in the comments section.
