In memoriam

A couple of weeks ago, sad news was posted in G+ about Cornflakes Woodcock, a very creative prim artist that had his home in OSgrid since 2010. He passed away almost a year ago. The news spread very slowly, as when people go "offline" for shorter or longer periods, there generally just shifting interests / grids etc. and often it's hard / impossible to keep track of all people and their alts & interests. (I really thought he just left to Metro).

Thirza Ember, editor from the Pingsfromtheafterlife blog has had various interviews with residents and friends of Cornflakes in OSgrid (including yours truly) and wrote the following beautiful article on her Blog :
Tribute to Cornflakes .

If you have had the privilege to meet him, you might want to go and check the article and all the great anecdotes and pictures she collected. (I promised to integrally repost the article here as well, but since it has all the pictures, i decided to just post this article pointing towards it).

Cornflakes has left us with his inspiring builds, and some "hidden messages" in his builds. Much of his works have been saved, and there are various tributes and even a complete "Cornflakes Museum" was erected. You can find all details in the article mentioned above. On a personal note, I would like to share the most important "lesson"  Cornflakes left me (this was back in 2011 already, but nevertheless ) :
