I recently found out a former classmate and friend of mine, Michael Sandborn, suffered an aneurism and passed away yesterday. He was an amazing artist, and a great person. He was a big guy, and fit that stereotype of being "Jolly". I can't ever remember not enjoying his company, whether it be watching him sketch awesomeness onto paper, or listen to his rants and raves over video games and anime, Mike always managed to put a smile on my face, even during finals! I am deeply saddened by this news, but feel the best way to keep someone alive is to keep them remembered.
If anybody would like to see his artwork, please do so, you can find it here:
My condolences go out to his friends, family, and fiance. Mike, I hope wherever you are, you are at peace.
