Last night I received a call that wore very heavy on my heart. One of my former co-workers was killed in a car wreck and her husband is in critical condition. Kristin was an amazing illustrator and designer. I remember when Wilson and I interviewed her, she blew everyone out of the water (the research, the design, the presentation...all fantastic).
I spent today thinking about her, her family and everyone back in the office. It's especially hard when it's unexpected. Why do things like this happen to someone so young and a future so bright. I guess what we can take from tragedies to to live each day to the fullest and make sure your loved ones know how special they are to you...
A couple of months ago, I sent Kristin a link to a doodle notebook. I told her she should consider writing and illustrating a children's book. I know I'd buy it. She said she'd thought about it and maybe in 2013 she'd do it. Unfortunately we'll never get to see it. However we can still be in awe of Kristin's wonderful drawings through her blog, click HERE.
Life is very short.
