Taken Before His Time

Pen and ink, 1998. One of several works by Flora with this title, in various media, rendered in the final years of his life.

On this date ten years ago, James Flora passed away at age 84. Nine days later the New York Times published an obit by Steven Heller.

I posted a tribute at the WFMU blog, citing Flora's posthumous contributions to the station's visual identity.

I can only hope that I am so well and fondly remembered 10 years after my passing. I doubt it, but I can hope. Thanks for the reminder, Irwin.
