I was traveling and didn't know that Chris had passed...I was in the middle of an article and it wasn't like him not to respond. He was always so encouraging and responsive. He got me to write art criticism again after many years. What a huge loss to the writing community and I can't image how his family must feel. Chris was well loved out here in the art ether and will be sorely missed by those of us who wrote for him. Allison A. Davis, San Francisco

Chris, you were a wonderful human being. Although, I did not get the chance to meet you in person (I planned to). I enjoyed being one of your Twitter PeePs. I love you bro'!!! I just found out 3 days ago. I was wondering where you were. I thought maybe you had powered down from Tweeting! Then, I received the message from Teia (via @blogofinnocence) that you had passed away. I want to say thank you Chris for inspiring me to write, and I will continue to do so. I know you are still alive and well and some other dimension because life is a continuum. Yet, it still hurts. I miss seeing you in the Twitter stream saying goodnight while everyone else was saying good morning. We had been friends for a year, but I felt like I had known you for years. I just understood you. You were so talented. I have to read all of your essays. Thanks for creating a masterpiece for us to revisit over and over. ~~~Vaya con Dios!!!

I just heard of Chris' passing, and am deeply saddened. Condolences to his family and friends for having lost him. He was a lovely human being, and extremely kind, positive, talented, intelligent and passionate...and a wonderful writer and artist. He will definitely be missed.

Ouch. That's so young to die. I only barely knew Al-Aswad on a Twitter basis. With so many artists to follow, I hadn't seriously looked into what he was doing, but when I saw someone tweet a dedication of remembrance to his life it startled me. I got to looking into what he was doing, and it was very impressive. So sad to see the life of an ambitious, brilliant entrepreneur snuffed out.

I feel so very sad and sorry to read about Chris' passing – almost missing words…

I only "knew" him online on StumbleUpon, Twitter and Facebook. Interchaning some mails concerning an interview I published on EIL.

EIL was not just an amazing art-magazine online but his life. He put everything into it. If this sentence 'it will never be the same as it was before' matches the truth it does with Chris' project, EIL.

A great has person has gone. We will miss him.

I've only just found out - I thought he'd just gone quiet again as he said he was putting everything into EIL.

I never actually met Chris but he found me on Twitter and at the time I had just stuffed up my second attempt at science career. He enthused me back to my art and writing.

I feel I owe him a hug thanks but now can never tell him that. Plus who am I going to chat with during my insomnia nights?

Condolances to the family and friends :(

I had just know Chris for a short while. Chris was a kind man who loved his family, work and friends. Chris was a man who would do anything just to put a smile on you face. I send my condolences to his family, friends and funs all over the world. We have truly lost an angel amongst us. Chris you will be truly missed. ( Christine Peoria IL).
