Doug Chaffee passed away

I learned from sarna.net that Doug Chaffee has passed away... his art helped to make the Battle Tech game alive and continues to do so..

My condolences to the Chaffee family...I am too upset to write any more...

Not only battletech, but also D&D and many other books was made much more vivid by his illustrations. R.I.P

Once i went to his site and viewed his work, yes it is a very sad time.  Such beautiful work, and some of his BT stuff is my fav pictures... and the D&D stuff bring back memories of peeking at relatives books lol

Gutting now I think about it, before coming onto this site I'd often (well once every few years) check his site to remember that Battletech existed.

His work will live on I am sure.
