Norman Hathaway has posted a very kind remembrance of the great Peter Lloyd on the Overspray blog.
See Sprint's Plug Into Now project (launched about a year ago and created by Goodby, Silverstein & Partners). Get impressed. And then goddamn it, move forward, do things no commerce can think of. Because it does have the feel of some excellent live art that's been around in the recent years. And let's say it feels just a tad late (and shallow, and not moving forward - but it's selling a product, for chrissakes!). Just late enough to feel that artists can still handle the commercial pressure. Yes, they've been counting on viral marketing. Yes, they think they might tap into a blog like this one.

I received some very sad news today: Peter Lloyd, the great artist featured in Overspray, has passed away. I never met Peter, but by all accounts he was a wonderful man besides being a truly extraordinary artist. Peter’s work can be seen in the PictureBox Gallery and of course in Overspray. He excelled at pristine visions of space and light. His paintings were immaculately composed and rendered, and his imagination ran towards the cosmic, as well as the comic. My heartfelt condolences to his family. We have lost one of our best.
