R.I.P. Ryan August

If you missed the tragic news yesterday, Ryan August (artist and sole force behind I Want Your Skull) recently passed away in a car accident.  As if this news weren’t sad enough, he’s also survived by a wife and young son.  Ryan has always been a great guy to work with, you’ll find nothing but positive memories from the entire poster community, he’ll be missed hugely.  If you want to help out the family a bit, they are taking Paypal donations at ryanaugustdonation[at]gmail.com.  Otherwise, place an order at IWantYourSkull.com, but don’t expect orders to ship fast, they’ve got a lot to deal with.

    I picked up a bunch of his work years ago from when he posted on vlv and did great show posters. I remember him being so stoked on I Want Your Skull when it was starting and I picked up a copy purely off the fact that he was behind it.
