Thread Name: OBIT: Tove Janssson - Moominmama passes on
Subject: RE: BS: Moominmama passes on
Oh dear; another one gone.  Tove Jansson was certainly a big influence on me, and one of the reasons I wound up drawing things for a living.  She will be remembered through her books -happy, funny, wistful and sad- for a long time.  She was one of the very few people I admire that I'd actually have liked to meet.
