In a Facebook post co-authored by his wife Liz Wrightson, the couple shared news of Wrightson’s recent brain surgery and complicated recovery, which has left the artist with limited function on his left side and diminished use of his left hand. "We have had to come to the sad conclusion that he is now effectively retired: he will produce no new art, and he is unable to attend conventions. Should this situation change I will happily announce it here," the post stated.
"He can still sign his name (in fact he was signing Kickstarter prints in the hospital!), and is otherwise pretty healthy and has good cognition," the post continued. "We expect to continue releasing signed prints, and offering occasional pieces of art for sale from the collection that remains."
