    I thought about him the other day and wondered what he was up to. Clement was a regular staple of CBR all the way back to when we had a chat room years ago, and I remember talking to him often. He was always the nicest guy with a great sense of humor, and I thought he deserved much more recognition for his amazing talent.

    Rest in peace, Clement, and my condolences go to anyone who knew him.

    Very sad to hear this, spent a lot of time in the old chat room with Clement back in the day, he was (as Justin said) a very nice and funny guy.

    R.I.P. Clem.

    My world is a little fucked up right now.

    Chatting with some people, apparently while the war might have been long, this particular battle may have been relatively brief, out of nowhere.

    Makes you wonder, seems like a lot of artists the last little bit have been going of cancer well before their time - Ringo and Turner immediately come to mind. Coincidence, artificially inflated numbers due to an insular industry? Maybe lack of regular health insurance?

    Whoa...

    This news rattled me a bit. Back in the super-old CBR Chat, Clement and I would talk for hours about his projects, life, whatever struck our fancy. He and I used to trade comics and trades all the time. He was always a joy to talk to.

    He will be missed.

    I remember first coming to CBR back in 2000 as Plan9 and hanging out in the old chat room.

    Clement along with Yanick Pacquette and Mr. Blond was one of the regulars who I always liked chatting with since they were artist in the business.

    Rest in peace, Clement.

    My bad. Either way, it feels like too many talented artists lately. This one being particularly bad just because I kind of knew Clem, even if I hadn't seen him for a while.

    On the plus side, talking with Blond, no dependents or hospital bills in this case.

    Unhappy Heartbreaking

    Dale and I were devastated to hear the news this morning. We'd only heard he was sick a couple of days ago, and by then it was too late to go see him to say goodbye. Life is so horribly unfair. I'll really miss kidding around with him at cons. I always felt so comfortable around him, he was so kind and such a hoot.

    Today is a very sad day. You will be sorely missed, Clement.

    So young, and so gifted... It's really tragic. R.I.P., Clément.
