G.I. Joe: Renegades character artist Clement Sauve succumbs to cancer

This news literally hit me out of nowhere…I had no idea he was even sick.  However, according to Ron Marz’s Twitter feed, Clement Sauve, the gifted artist behind the revamped character designs for G.I. Joe: Renegades passed away last night at the way too young age of 33.

He had apparently been battling cancer and last night lost his fight.

Whatever issues any of the fans had for the character revitalizations in G.I. Joe: Renegades, I hope we all take a few moments today to remember a gifted artist, and to consider what a great impact he had on our favorite property.  Not just with G.I. Joe: Renegades, but his work with Devils’ Due as well.

Hopefully for a moment we can all recognize and remember that there are human beings involved with every facet of this hobby that we know and love, and those human beings have the same hopes, dreams, and fears that we all do, and deserve the same level of respect that we would expect ourselves.

Rest in Peace, Clem.  Thanks for playing your part in our lives, and hopefully in the next generation as well.
