Eric Medalle was the Creative Design Director at The Pokémon Company International and an illustrator for the TFG of Pokémon. We offer our condolences to all those impacted by Mr. Meadalle's passing. Thanks to FangztheWolf for the heads up.
That is so crazy. What a horrible accident. RIP Eric. Thinking of him and his family, and especially of his daughter.
I live in the Seattle area, the windstorm was insane this weekend. Condolences to his family for their loss.
EDIT: Seems there were zero warnings beforehand of the tree breaking, which makes it a bit more understandable but still scary to hear... Gah, stuff like this is why I refuse to drive.
This...is unbelievable. Wow. My condolences to his family, I can't imagine the shock they must be feeling. The world has lost a great individual. Rest in Peace, Mr. Medalle.
