  1. As a dabbler, I've never attempted to imitate his style ( as far as I remember). But I enjoyed growing up with Henry Hi- rise. And I've ripped these pages too..

    For all you Bell fans out there. Dave is not doing well at all. He is in Hospice at the Pillars in Oakdale. Dave has brain cancer and from the looks of things he is not long for this place. His wife came yesterday when I was there. Dave cannot speak, or barely speak. Prayers and good wishes for Dave and Lynn.
  3. Sorry to hear that...........My prayers are with him and his family.
  4. Very sad news :( ... my thoughts & prayers are with Dave, his friends, & family.

    Folks should also checkout the Dave Bell Art thread.

    A superb example of a truly inspiring, creative individual! I think we all share a common respect and admiration for the way he has done things. I just gotta believe he inspired a huge amount of people with his actions and art..God bless
  11. A unique talent and wonderful human being.
    Yes, certainly a huge inspiration to all CAR-toonists.
    May God bless and keep you.

    It is with great sadness that I share that our friend Dave passed away last night at 11:30. His funeral will be some day this week at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Roseville, MN. If you are a local friend of Dave's, drive your bike , street rod or custom to both the memorial and the funeral to give Dave his last personal car show. More info later.
