Remembrance for Kevyn Wallace


This is a post in remembrance of a good friend and awesome artist Kevyn Wallace. About a year ago, Kevyn died at 47 in a horrific car accident in Burbank, CA by a drunk driver.  At the time of his death, he was completing a master's program in filmmaking and completing a documentary on African American artists in the animation industry.  

He was an amazing spirit and always had a smile on his face.  He left us way too early and I hope with this small post that his legacy and spirit always continue.

Via Cartoon Brew, Kevyn's family is making a public plea for support and asking those in the LA area to attend a hearing for Kevyn against the drunk driver, who has yet served time.  The location is for Monday, August 27 at 8:30am at the Los Angeles Criminal Courts Building, 210 West Temple Street, 11th floor, Room 114.  

I cannot attend but will be there in spirit and pass the word for those who can.  

As important, I hope one day that Kevyn's film be completed so his love and passion for this industry always continue!!!!

It's really sad to hear stuff like this. I hope his film is completed and the drunk driver does time.

I remember Kevyn, we met through a mutual friend Simon Varela, who was very close friends with him. Such a sad and tragic incident. Simon talks about him often to me. I will tell him about your nice post. I said just today that I wish I knew him better, Simon tells me great stories about their adventures.
