We regret to inform the community that Montreal artist Clement Sauvé passed away last evening after a heroic battle with cancer. He was only 33.
Sauvé began his comics career as Yanick Paquette’s assistant, but has subsequently worked for DC on projects such as JLA Secret Files, Stormwatch and the Human Defense Corps. He also worked on the series Voltron, GI Joe/Transformers and Infantry for Devil’s Due Publishing. He had also redesigned many characters for the G.I. Joe Renegades project.
On behalf of everyone here at the JSA, our sincere condolences go out to his family and friends.
Update 2:15 PM Ty Templeton’s Tribute – Ty and Clement worked together on the Human Defense Corps for DC Comics.
UPDATE 11AM: In my day job I work as a cancer researcher, and I am always taken by surprise whenever someone like Clement is stricken with the disease at such a young age, although cancer is a tragedy at ANY age. I strongly urge people to consider making a donation in Clement’s name to the Canadian Cancer Society (or your country, state or local equivalent if you are not Canadian). http://www.cancer.ca/
If you would like to leave some words and thoughts about Clement, we would be honoured to know how Clement the person, or his work, impacted your life. Comments welcome.
