So Long, Sue
Animation lost another great artist yesterday, as Sue Nichols lost her life after a long battle with cancer. FLiP posted about her fight back in March of 2015, ten months after cancer took my wife, Donna. And though we weren't close, I really, REALLY wanted Sue to make it. Medical justice, I guess.
Sue worked in story and development on a heap of features, from Beauty and the Beast to Princess and the Frog, and most recently, Ugly Dolls. I knew her from our student days at CalArts where she was best friends with Brenda Chapman, a friendship that lasted until the day she died. Often, if I ran into Brenda somewhere, Sue was with her. She had a big bright smile and taste for twisted humor. At CalArts, she was responsible for creating a series of haunted house mazes in good ol' A-113. I experienced one of these mazes first hand, and I can attest to their brilliance. There's a FLiP post about it from back in 2012 that is a worthy tribute to Sue. Click here to check it out.
So long, Sue!
