I was truly saddened to hear that my friend and fellow artist, Stephen Prestwood, has passed away. I've known Stephen for years; I think my first contact with him was around 2003 when he was drawing Bulldog in Jason Cobley's BAM! comic and we were both frequenting the Pencil Monkey forums hosted by PJ Holden. He took the piss out of me from a very early stage and I thought, here's someone I'm going to get on with. When I started looking for contributors to my own comic, his bold cartoony style was the first I thought of and he was the perfect fit for Battle Ganesh. taking over from me as artist on issue 4
He went on to illustrate the complete Icarus Dangerous saga (available here) and then switched to return to his stint as Bulldog artist - a character he had drawn a decade earlier in Bulldog's own comic, BAM!
A great guy and a great talent who will be sorely missed.
R.I.P Mr P.
