An Incredible Designer, Artist, and Spirit: Chakaras Johnson (via @BDNN_News)

As I was catching up on my reading yesterday I ran across Atim Annette Oton’s tribute to Chakaras Johnson on her Black Design News Network blog. Chakaras Johnson passed away untimely around 18 July 2010.

After reading her tribute, I researched him and found that he was an incredible graphic designer, artist, and spirit. I’m sorry I didn’t know him, but am grateful to Atim for “introducing” him to me. I too, am compelled to pay tribute to him. You may see his stunning art at chakaras.com, and incredible design work at helen-marie.com, the graphic design company he founded with his brother Chacon Johnson. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.
