No more Bada Bing! R.I.P. James Gandolfini

Like many other folks, I was saddened by the news on June 19 that James Gandolfini had died suddenly of a heart attack. Although I had remembered his brief and brutal appearance in the 1993 film, ‘True Romance,’ it was his portrayal of the complex and conflicted character of mobster Tony Soprano that made me a fan of this wonderful actor.

A few years ago, I enjoyed coming up with this illustration that pays tribute to the ground-breaking HBO TV series, ‘The Sopranos’.  Television and movies sure won’t be the same without that big lug and I'll miss him.
