Default Keith Parkinson

I don't know if any of you know who Keith Parkinson is.. but he is a fairly well-known Fantasy Artist who goes back quite a ways. His relevancy to PC Gaming is he did several box covers for the Everquest MMORPG Franchise.

He also has been working as the Art Director for Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, which is being published by Microsoft and designed by SigilGames, which includes many of the people who designed the original Everquest.

Keith passed away this past Friday from Leukima. Brad McQuaid has written a pretty touching tribute and farewell to his employee and friend.

It is currently on the frontpage of Vanguard: Saga of Heroes

I didn't know him but am very sorry he died from Leukimia, I am sure at a young age too as it's often the case, I checked out the website but must of missed the tribute in question....
