"People Who Died" series by Tim Gough

I imagine it's been an unusually busy month for illustrator Tim Gough, whose series of "People Who Died" drawings caught my eye recently. Recent weeks have seen the demises(?) of so many international figures - Gaddafi, Steve Jobs, Smokin' Joe Frazier, Heavy D etc. Sadly there's no drawing of the late Sir Jimmy Saville - but I guess he wasn't that well known in Philadelphia.

They're a great series of drawings anyway, I love the marks he makes - remind me a little of Ben Shahn's drawings. Tim also puts out some very tasty screenprints. This one below seems particularly appropriate right now.
