Sabrinaa Nightfire, one of the mainstays of the Second Life art world, passed away last night of cancer, as reported by Bryn Oh, soror Nishi, Miso Susanowa, and most importantly, her aunt. Although I'd heard of her many times, I only met her once, last October when I was thinking about starting Split Screen. She was very encouraging, and I tucked her in the back of my mind for possible future artists there. But too late.
My heart goes out to her family and to those in SL who were close to her.
