Artist Brian Postman saw the news of Will Eisner's death (see 'In Memoriam: Will Eisner') and sent us his recollections:
I was one of Will's earliest students at S.V.A. (1977-1980). Not only did I find him to be a great person, but he shared his tremendous knowledge on construction, storytelling, inking, etc. He always had a calm and generous demeanor. When I became a professional penciler for Marvel, he one day called me up to sub for his class at the school of visual arts. I would see him from time to time over the years and he was always a warm, generous person. With his vitality, I always expected him to live to 100! I will greatly miss him. I do storyboards now, and use many basic principles he taught me.
