Jeffrey Catherine Jones, Requiescat in Pace

I got the very sad news from Terry Allen that Jeffrey Catherine Jones, artist extraordinaire and the person Frank  Frazetta called the greatest living painter, has departed for the worlds beyond worlds.

I haven't spend nearly enough time talking about JCJ's fantastic work, but the blogosphere has not let the death of a modern legend go by unnoticed: Bill "Indy" Cavalier, Mike Cane, Matt at Ferrett Press, and no doubt others have paid their respects.

This video by Maria Cabardo says it all, and I think it's of comfort that JCJ at least found peace and acceptance before the end.


  1. sad to hear this as well. I am somewhat familiar with his work,not as well as i should be. just checked the site out too, what a loss.-Mario

  2. I loved his "Thongor and the wizard of Lemuria" and "Thongor at the end of time" paintings. I thought they complemented Lin Carter's Howard/Burroughs homage really well with their Frazetta style.
