Today I just found out that Ray Harryhausen, one of the greatest stop motion pioneers who ever lived, the man behind such great films as The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, Jason and the Argonauts and the original Clash of the Titans...has passed away at the age of 92. He was such a big influence on me and was one of the reasons I wanted to be both a filmmaker and an artist. He's also influenced such other famous people like Tim Burton, Peter Jackson, and even George Lucas. Later this year, I was planning on doing a countdown of my absolute favorite creatures he has done, and now that I've heard this news, I shall devote the countdown in his memory! But for now, rest in peace, Ray. May you be reunited with your friend, Ray Bradburry, and finally see the dinosaurs like you wanted to when you were a kid. We shall all miss you.
