As I sadly reported earlier in the week my friend and iconic Traveller artist, Bryan Gibson, died unexpectedly of pneumonia. Bryan's work was long noticed and enjoyed by many, within the Traveller community and beyond. He leaves behind his 16 year old daughter, Pamela, as his only close family.

I was not surprised to discover that Bryan died virtually penniless. His passions for art, friends, and family ruled his life, but he was always "fiscally challenged". As a result his daughter and her mother are asking for donations to help with Bryan's modest funeral arrangements. If you never had a chance to thank Bryan the enjoyment that his art brought you, this may be your last real chance to make it manifest. And if Bryan was a friend... as he was for me... it can be a final thank your for the friendship and good times.

Donations are being collected through FundRazr: fundrazr.com/campaigns/1hR32/a… .  Thanks for your consideration in this final helping hand to an inspirational artist whose work helped entertain and fire so many imaginations.

It breaks my heart that someone of his caliber talent couldn't create a business model that actually got him paid regularly. It makes me all the more determined to change that for future artists.

Gave a small amount. I really hope the best for his family in this terrible situation.

As a die-hard fan of Traveller (MegaTraveller to be exact) I extend my sincerest condolences.
He will be sorely missed.

No problem. I've ran across his work in Traveller, and I've always felt inspired by it. I felt it was only right to give something back.

Yeah, when I tried it, it wasn't working as well. So I sent you the money instead via PayPal.
