Bil Keane (1922-2011)

An old homage to a creator of one of the classics in the field of cartooning. I had just recently cited his work in the thesis section dealing with narrative art: his signature influence in the subgenre of single-panels will be greatly missed.
Update: wonderful personal perspective on Family Circus from cartoonist Lynda Barry (via Drawn).
