RINGO Tribute by JPRart RINGO Tribute by JPRart
This is a Prince of Saturn painting that I did for Mike Wieringo, before his untimely passing last week. I was a long time fan of his work, and the news hit me very hard. I loved his art, everything from the Flash to Fantastic Four and especially Tellos. He was an incredibly talented artist, but still humble and a genuinely good person. He will be missed.

great! I can see here a little different style of yours, and I love it! :) I am just in love with your way of colouring! You did lineart here on computer or on the paper?

This is fantastic work Jeremy, I'm sure Mike would've been thrilled. Do you know if he had a chance to see it?

Either way, solid job on this.

Thanks!
Mike was one of my favorite artists!
He did get to see this colored image, and liked it a lot.
I actually got a few e-mails from him and it was a real thrill.

I've always been a big fan of his creator owned work on Tellos and I've been slowly working on a 3d Image of Koj and Jarek and the rest of the characters. Hopefully I'll finish it someday and it will be a much more fitting tribute.

Also, I just checked out your gallery and your work is fantastic!

That's fantastic Jeremy, I can't even imagine how thrilling that was. Mike was a favorite of mine as well, and this is certainly a fitting tribute.

I loved Tellos as well, and can't wait to see the Koj and Jarek piece when you finish it.

And thanks for the kind words, your work is very impressive as well!

I don't know what to write more.
I met the man in Angouleme when i was a kid, and he made such a positive impression on me.
