Sent on behalf of Nick Lambert, Chair, Computer Arts Society:
Sad news has reached us. Pioneer animator Alan Kitching, the co-developer of the ANTICS (ANimated Technicolor-Image Computer System) animation package since 1972, has died in Lanzarote. He had made the island his home in recent years.
Alan's passing is a major loss to the computer animation community and CAS sends condolences to Eva at this sad time.
