    He lived a long time for a taxidermist. I mean with the sedentary life style of an artist. Plus all the chemicals.
    RIP

    Sad to hear of Jean’s passing. Jean was a wonderful person. An inventor, artist, and creative mind. RIP old friend. I’ll peel the tomatoes for you.

  11. As a newbie into the art, I would have loved to learn from you in one way or another.. some people look at death as sad and depressing, but, as taxidermists, should we not be looking at his life as a beautiful gift...? He extended the life of those that had passed away, in doing so, preserving them and keeping them beautiful for years to come. Although we don’t taxidermy humans, that doesn’t mean that he can’t live forever in our hearts and memories, and through his teachings.

    Bless this wonderful man and everything he has taught and passed down through his years. Cheers to you friend, brother, mentor, father! We shall see you again!
