He had cancer. Only his close friends and family knew. Other than that, I don't know too much. I tried calling him just to be sure, and his phone is disconnected. He meant a lot to me. Inspired me to take steps back, reexamine my life and the directions I'm headed. One very important person in my life. I'm thankful that I told him that. I think Saigon Market is collecting pictures and pieces for one last art show.

I live in the north eastern Oklahoma area - I have known Theo for several years - heh - I bet he designed the eTHOS R.I.P. banner himself. Dead artists sell more paintings I guess

Not sure if this is any help to you, but when I talked to Theo last year I asked him if I could see any new Ethos throwups anywhere and he said that he was done with writing Ethos. So when I saw the website saying RIP I just thought he was just finished with writing the moniker. Maybe it's as simple as that?

Good luck and thank you!

yeah maybe - but CANCER? what about all the tears and disrespect for friends and family - not to mention the memories of people that have actually died.

Melissa said...

Ok.......... the cancer thing was just heard through the grape vine.
