Jeremy "Sweetwater" Mullins Rest In Peace

The comics educator, podcast creator and webcomics cartoonist Jeremy Mullins has passed away, according to several alumni and those of an awareness of that program. He died on Saturday from multiple injuries while climbing in the Catskills near Kaaterskill Falls. Mullins held an MFA from the sequential art department at Savannah College Of Art And Design (SCAD), where he won an outstanding thesis award in 2005 for his "Digital Delivery and the Empowerment of the Sequential Artist" and where he would teach.

I did not know Jeremy "Sweetwater" Mullins personally but I just have to say how deeply saddened I am to hear of his passing. Jeremy and the homies at Seqa Lab are a big part of the reason why I started posting comics on the web, I've listened to their twice weekly podcast "SEQALab" for over a year now and was always inspired by the love for the craft of making comics that he passed on to all those around him. If you'd like to see his work check out his Journal Comic and visit the archive at the SEQA Lab website.
