Thanks to everyone who contacted me - it was a deeply cathartic day, painful but beautiful and a very real convention hotel bar vibe emerged in the evening which I'm sure people will be comforted by.

The "stream" of the ceremony will be available in the week for 28 days or so, so do contact me if you want access to it and I'll pass the details along to you. Or, for anything at all of course, we are none of us an island and help is always there, even if your mind tells you doggedly that it's not.

Okay, after some discussion, it's been decided the link shouldn't be put here, publicly viewable on the forum - so if anyone wants the link, give me a buzz either here via PM, on FB, twitter etc etc I'm everywhere as @owenwattsdraws

Cheers everyone - I hope you're all holding up okay <3

I've been asked by Bolt's family to share a Zoom link for the funeral on the forum for the ceremony this Friday afternoon - not sure if it would be more appropriate for it to be in this thread or somewhere else. Mods, feel free to message me on this subject if you can think of the most appropriate way to go about this.

So yes, just to let you know, if you want to pay your respects and you feel comfortable with it, it's happening this Friday at three-ish.

From Blackmocco / Mick Cassidy - the gallery over on our FB page will be open indefinitely to tributes so if folk have any doodles or drawings they want to contribute whenever they feel ready let us know.

Paying back all the creativity he got out into the world is going to be the work of a lifetime.

Fuck. I wish I had headed his advice, listened to my gut and started writing sooner. I'm really sorry Dave.

Just saw this - don't beat yourself up for not being more "proactive" Hawk - you'll create when you're good and ready sir - and the creation will be better for the space you've given it to grow. Not everyone is a Ron Smith - but I can guarantee you every hero you ever had feels the same pressure, the same regret, the same yearning to just get on with it. Bolt did too, and he would have never have judged you for it <3

This was sent to the FQP FB page by one Jonathan Macho - who, with his brother, has done an adorable *response* to one of Dave's wonderfully unexpected "you've bought some our comics so I'm going to draw you summat" sketches. I'm sure we're all familiar with the thrill of opening your order from FutureQuake and seeing a Dredd, a Tharg, a Kid Knee or in this case...

There are some things you can never repay, but it would have been great to have a little longer to try.

Ohhhh this really got to me - and you say you're not the "words guy" indeed!

Beautiful picture, they've all been really lovely but this one feels deeply personal.

My own tribute, not particularly good I'm afraid. Quick headsketches across little notes like I used to watch him squirrel away at endlessly at cons, like what would fall out of your envelopes when he sent you comics, he was brimming with these little square drawings and they were like his creativity really. Boundless, endless. And he would always just give them away for nothing, like his time. I'd amass so much of them but I kept each one - they're priceless to me. I'll keep these too.

I think that and him actually being Kid Knee in SD fan film were his most prized things. The glee that radiated from him when he spoke about them was almost a palpable force.

Well, this is beautiful. This is really lovely... Pete, reading through that I went "oh I'm not sure about this" to being in floods of tears in less than a minute. You lovely people.

As someone who has been in dark places there are two problems ith the 'just talk to someone':

1. Often in this situation you don't have anyone you can talk to.

Yes you do. Us. Anyone. Don't ever think this, not to diminish your experience Scrotnig but that's never true.

2. Even if you do, they often don't want to be burdened with your problems. They may well lend a sympathetic ear for ten minutes but you will soon find they don;t want to know and will start avoiding you.

Also - superficially yes, it's difficult if anyone just rings you and goes "I'M FEELING TERRIBLE"

but can I tell you guys, Bolt was this for me. He put up with so much of my raging and self-flagellating and anger and sorrow and everything. He listened to it all, it meant the world and it always will and I don't mind who you are or why, do the same. Give Shark a buzz, give me a buzz, give anyone saying "just talk to me" a buzz, give the Samaritans a buzz and I guarantee you:

1 - You'll be heard
2 - I can't guarantee anything else but the first one is valid, it really is.

Frankly I'm glad this thread has taken this turn. It's extremely important to talk about how you feel. I feel terrible. How are you?

This is a wonderful idea guys - if it's okay I'd like to share some of them on the FutureQuake FB page as well. I want to draw something and I did try but it all hurts so perhaps later along in the month.
