We’ve learned that the Dallas illustrator and bon vivant died over the weekend. He struggled with a host of maladies and died in his sleep. He not only appeared on our cover in December 1992 (shown here), but he filled the pages of D Magazine for many years with dining reviews, illustrations, and anything that required a certain wild-ass, subversive approach that only George Toomer could pull off. He’ll be missed.
I’m going to open comments so that those who knew him can say a few words, if they’re so inclined. At some point, his son George Jr. will likely enjoy reading them.
