Three progressive voices go silent

Rightardia has been publishing  for more than four years. During that time we have seen some strong progressive voices fade away due to illness and subsequent death.

The first big loss was RS Jayne. He often used modified comic book covers to satirize the right wing. If you search  the Rightardia blog, you can find examples of his work. Most of his art on Google images has disappeared. Here is another example below.

To avoid copy right violations, Rightardia linked a lot of the art. Much of Jayne's art is now gone, even missing from the Rightardia blog. 

One of the first progressive bloggers was and you kind find information about Bartcop on wikipedia:

The blog was written by Terry Coppage. Terry died on died March 5th, 2014.

Last but not least in Barabara Broido who recently passed away. Rightardia used her art a lot on both the blog and the Facebook page.

Check Out Barbara's Doodle blog to see her work. She was a very funny lady who would dress up in a variety of humorous costumes with her husband, Kenny. Barbara Broido died on April 8th, 2014 at the Albany Medical Center, following a short battle with multiple Myeloma.See her blog at before it disappears.
It is sad to see these three pass. All will be hard acts to follow Hope some new progressive talent materializes one fine day that can generate an equivalent  body of work that these three produced.

Good-bye, my Internet friends. You are already missed.
