    Today I received an email from Herc Fede´s wife telling me he suddenly passed away on tuesday of a heart attack.

    I just wanted people to know as a lot of us loved his swirling magic.

    It would be cool to post pics of his great work.

    Wow, that really sucks. He easily had some of the best swirls ever created. They always had this smooth, blob like transitions that were incredibly unique.

    Everyone should post pictures here! It'd be a nice way to remember his work.

    Absolutely terrible news. My last emails with him were joking that I should bring a six pack and pick up my next order in person :( He was a true master and nobody else's work even comes close to his.

    RIP Herc

    My latest guitar he did in December 2013

    This is sad to hear, my thoughts are with his family.
    I'm lucky enough to own one of Herc's creations, a glow swirl Jem that when lit up looks like this:

    I think he was young, but he have a lot of health issues, like asthma, that make it hard for him to do painting I think

    Very sad. I bought this swirl from him years ago. Unfortunately I couldn't afford to finish the project so I sold it off to a friend. But Herc was a nice dude and very talented.
