    Wow, what a drag. Just as evidenced by the pics in this thread alone he was a real master.

    May he rest in peace.

    Rest in peace, Herc. I've been a fan since 1999 when I first discovered swirled finishes. What a shame. :( I wish all the best for his family and kin.

    Woah, I thought you guys were being respectful and all but those are the best swirls I've ever seen. I thought I didn't like swirls until seeing some of those.

    Respect to someone who was obviously very talented and sounds like a great guy.

    Anyone have a bio on Herc? I'd be interested to know his past, how he got into swirling, etc.

    I'm a little late on this but very saddened to hear this. Herc was a great guy. Here are two of my swirlies he did.

    Me and Willie Adler at the Madison booth, NAMM 2007 - That is an ESP Maverick circa 1994

    Me on stage with my purple/green swirl he did for me on a JEM I had.

    He did some fantastic swirls. RIP, Herc.

    What a shame. I've never been big on swirls but that PRS and glow swirl are pretty stunning.
