 photo LuisaRIP_zps53c11877.jpg

On Thursday morning, I received a call from Luisa Felix's friend Miriam Martinez, informing me that my cartoonist friend Luisa Felix had died at home in her sleep.

I'd have posted something sooner (and been more communicative in general) however I only located this picture a few hours ago, and I know it is one that she liked. I took this photo in August last year, to send to the authors of "Little Elf," the book propped on the table.

Luisa's health had been delicate following the power outage in Hoboken during the weeks after last year's Hurricane Sandy; she was diagnosed with a stomach virus a few days ago, and succumbed from its effects.

I will say more, perhaps tomorrow; today I am travelling to Hoboken to make funeral arrangements.

I didn't know! So sorry to hear this. I got some email from her just after Sandy, but then didn't hear anything else. Sad sad news.

Luisa was your friend!
Stomach Virus?

I know Hillary's stomach virus was caused by the Nazi-fascist bio-electromagnetic weapon's virus test, so I think Luisa's death maybe was a fascist beam weapon murder.
Are you a victim of fascist electronic tracking? Maybe one cause of her death was that she related you?!

Luisa's Legacy

Did she leave any kind of will or requests for the caretaking of her characters? She was always so careful about protecting them with copywrite, and so concerned that they get known. I have also had some inquiring me if there is going to be any kind of tribute book.

Luisa's friend EJ Barnes has been discussing with me the possibility of assembling a tribute book. We'd love it if you'd assist (I'm sure it will soon be clearer what kind of assistance would be useful, but right now things are very hazy.)

Also, I intend to put together an APA mailing just for A-O members; I will coordinate that with you as well. There were *LOTS* of doodles on Post-It sheets, so every member will receive at least a couple of Post-It sheets of original art by Luisa.

Also, just to let you know, a few minutes ago I located a trove of Luisa's notes, character sheets and even some full scripts for her characters. I will make sure that this stuff does not stay hidden forever.
