Seven years ago today, Keith Parkinson lost his battle with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML). Keith was an amazing artist, friend, mentor, father and husband, and he is still greatly missed. He continues to inspire those who knew him every day. Keith touched so many lives and it is important that we all remember his great spirit and how he loved life.

Keith painted the artwork for the original EverQuest box and the first three expansion packs. In painting the box art, he also created Firiona Vie.

Although he was unable to finish the box art for Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, he did create the art for Jeric, Eila and Idara. During his life, Keith traveled the world many times over. He explored castles across Europe, camped in the deserts of Kenya and wandered the busy streets of Hong Kong but his favorite place to be was always at home surrounded by friends, family, and of course, lots of paint. Keith fought every step of the way while battling Leukemia and never gave up hope, but in the end it was more than his body could handle.
