R.I.P. John Henson by JonnyBCartoonMan R.I.P. John Henson by JonnyBCartoonMan
As many Muppet fans have discovered by now, John Henson, the fourth of the Henson's five children and puppeteer of Sweetums for nearly two decades, died yesterday of a heart attack at the tragically young age of 48. I don't often do mourning pieces like this, but in this case, it seemed appropriate.

I actually was going to upload another piece within the coming days. I'll see how I feel in a couple days or so, but this event has unfortunately wrecked the curve. My sympathies go out to the extended Henson family and friends during this difficult time.

How about that? I actually JUST finished a Sweetums & Robin picture just as a saw this updated colored pic! But this seems better than mine.
