Darwyn Cooke has been one of my favorite comic book artists for about a decade and a half. He passed away over the weekend.
I had forgotten that I had written about a talk he gave at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. It doesn't seem to be online at their site anymore, so I'll reproduce it here. Also, you can hear my recording of the talk here, newly online since sadly we won't be able to hear any new thoughts from him.
(I didn't write that lede by the way)
