Loss of a Friend

A friend of mine passed away early yesterday.  His name was Jon Arfstrom.  He was the last of the cover artists for the original Weird Tales magazineand I am very priviledged to have known him.

Jon's career spanned from the late 1940s and continued until he died.  He was still drawing at the end.  I was visiting with him only hours before he passed and we talked about the book we've been planning and only working on piecemeal for a while now.  I hope we can publish a collection of his art in 2016.

Here is a cover Jon did for Weird Tales which he signed for me just shortly before he died.

Condolences. I loved a lot of the old Weird Tales and If covers. I wonder how many of them he did? Good luck with the collection of his work, I will keep it on the wish list.,
