One of the greatest artist Cornelius Cole III

An animation giant has passed away recently. He was one of the greatest artist my peer group had the fortune of learning under during our time at Cal Arts. He instilled in all of us a drive for life as well as a drive to produce better art than we were producing the previous day. He shared with us his love of art and encouraged us to have our true selves come through when producing our art work.

There are rare times in life to be fortunate enough to come across an individual whom can enrich and inspire one's life, and Corny was all that to me. He left a legacy among us whom had the fortune to study under his tutelage while growing our artistic eye at school.
