Fantasy Artist Jeffrey Catherine Jones 1944-2011

We lost another artist of fantasy today. Jeffrey Catherine Jones was best know for her ACE fantasy covers such as Fritz Leiber's Fafhard and the Grey Mouser series as well as being a member of The Studio with Barry Windsor Smith, Bernie Wrightson and Michael Kaluta.

Jeffrey suffered from severe emphysema and bronchitis as well as hardening of the arteries around the heart.
