Wayne England and Christopher Rush back-to-back... a sad time for Magic fans indeed. :'-(

I never met Wayne, but Chris was such a great guy when we met years ago at GenCon. I know he had some trouble for a while there - Gary was in touch with him when he lived in Colorado. Lately I thought he was doing better... you just never know how much time you have.

Ray Thiel (1964-2007) - the man who showed me more wonderful games & gaming sessions than I ever dreamed possible... you ran out of hit points too young, my friend.

Damn, I didn't know for Wayne England and Chris Rush... What a shock :'-(
Thanks to all those great artists for what they have accomplished : to make us dream about the fantastic universe they helped to create.

It was certainly a double wammy. I'm still in shock about it all.
I only met Wayne a couple times and remember him as a very aproachable and likeable guy.
Christopher hit me hard. I have known him for so long--not real close but as Todd Lockwood put it, you might not see him for some time but when you did it was like you just picked up where you left off. He seemed so upbeat at GenCon about getting back into the conventions and events and doing more work. I had planned on seeing him there this year.......sigh.

I'm posting here to promote three auctions that are running at the moment on facebook in the

MTG Art Exchange group
https://www.facebook.com/groups/191646680997118/

and the

"The Gathering" art book collectors edition sketch art showcase group
https://www.facebook.com/groups/465785763524867/

and the

the Magic: The Gathering misprints and oddities group
https://www.facebook.com/groups/MTGmisprints/?fref=nf

The first auction is for a set of two sealed chroma cels by Ani Magine released in 1998: Black Lotus and Avenging Angel

Image

The second auction is for a complete sealed set of the 404-card standard edition sketch cards from "The Gathering" kickstarter campaign (limited to 100 sets):

Image

The third auction is for a BGS 9 Serra Elemental misprint

All proceeds from these three auctions will be donated equally to the gofundme's started for the families of Christopher Rush (by Jeff Ferreira), and Wayne England (by Mark Aronowitz)
