Jeffrey Catherine Jones has passed away

Artist Jeffrey Catherine Jones – an acclaimed voice in the fantasy art world and a close friend and influence to a generation of comics artists – has passed away at age 67. The news became public through a Tweet from Maria Cabardo, a documentary filmmaker working on a film about Jones' life (found via Tom Spurgeon).

Born Jeffrey Jones 1944, the artist celebrated a long career whose highlights included a 1970s run doing cover paintings for major fantasy novels like Fritz Leiber's "Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser" and a number of comics including "Idyl" for "National Lampoons" and "I'm Age" for "Heavy Metal."
