Arthur Gugick, 1960-2019

Hi all, I know this blog has been dormant for a long time, but I just saw a notice on Facebook that Arthur Gugick died in a car crash a few days ago. Arthur was a father and math teacher and, the reason I'm noting him here, an AFOL. You may remember him primarily for microscale recreations of world architectural landmarks, also amazing mosaics, along with other MOCs that you can see in his Flickr stream. I've featured his work here on multiple occasions. Indeed, some of his last posted works were microscale creations. He appears to have gone on a tour of southeast Asia and posted several micro renditions, not of specific buildings but his general impressions of different places, like this of Singapore.
