Rest in Peace Melvin R Ylagan.

Melvin was a great artist and musician. He performed at many Goth events over decades in the NYC club world both as a solo performer and with his band + Complex. He was also a talented cartoonist and fine person. The world is that much poorer for his passing.

Here are some of the events that he was a part of, some of his artwork and some photos of him. Here is also an interview with him.

He is missed.
