Michael C Gross, creator of the Ghostbusters logo amongst over things has given an interview to the Daily Telegraph.  He is on my DDP team as he has terminal cancer, however the article doesn't touch on this at all and tells us that he is now working in California now as a nature photographer. 

Very interesting. Both articles even descirbe him as gravelly voiced and "gruff". Same author?

 

 

Gross busted.

 

 

Qualifying DDP Obit for the two teams who had him. http://www.dailymail...go-dies-70.html

Gross busted.

He was planned to be on my 2016 DDP cancer-themed team. But that's okay, I'm starting to think I should do just a regular team and that's it.

Death Impends

Died in 2013 but it appears this is a new article today.  If I'm wrong.... *shrugs*

 

Reporters Without Borders is stunned to learn that well-known Syrian cartoonist Akram Raslan died in detention in 2013, less than a year after his arrest in October 2012, and that his death was almost certainly the result of having been tortured by the Syrian security services.
Rumours of his death have been circulating online in recent days and now the sources consulted by Reporters Without Borders say it has been confirmed.
In July 2013, shortly before his death, he was secretly put on trial by a terrorism court in a trial with no witnesses and no defence lawyers, according to Cartoonists Rights Network International.
