the queen is dead. long live the queen.

the sad news is just now circulating...  Alexander McQueen is dead at the young age of 40.  McQueen was found dead at his London home and Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.

The Guardian
The New York Times

who am i to write a eulogy for someone who has changed so many lives and the fashion industry as a whole?  would Gareth Pugh been so well excepted if Alexander McQueen hadn't been there to pave the way? 

i am going to do an Alexander McQueen illustration now i guess.  man, im really sad.
