Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?


My sincere condolences go to her family and friends - the Browncoat light just got a little dimmer.

11th was a real class act & a joy to know. We shared a few good laughs at the OB & the official Drive forum. My husband and I still wear her T-Shirts & show off her coffee mugs. :-)

I will miss her. She was one of the first Browncoats who welcomed me to the family.

More details: Thank you all for your posts. Susan was a very private person but we felt it was fitting to share a few details of her last few days with her 'verse of friends. Susan was first treated for cancer (Hodgkins) in her late teens. She was in and out of remission a few time since but always kept herself focused on life and her art, not the cancer. About three weeks ago she asked her close friend Bret to take her in for some tests as she was not feeling well and having trouble swallowing. At the hospital the doctors ordered more tests which resulted in her being admitted that same day. After a few days and several more tests the doctors informed Bret that the cancer had spread through her body. Bret called me and another friend SLWade to the hospital for support, and informed Susan's beloved uncle in Virginia. Susan died that day with the three of us by her bedside. 

Since then, we, her uncle and mother converged in LA to support each other and help settle her affairs. Susan ran several websites including her Cafe Press site. Definitive plans for the sites have not been made yet as certain legal steps must be taken, but the hope is to keep her sites and her art alive. Please bear with us as we put her affairs in order and sort out the legal issues concerning her websites. 

Last, a few have asked about her cat, Rocko, now retired. I will be inviting Rocko to live with me and my two cats. I hope to provide him a comfortable pod befitting a very sweet, bona fide companion.

Thanks again for your posts, it has comforted us to realize how many lives were touched by 11th Hour as well as humbling to realize the extent of her legacy in the Browncoat community

Memorial: Susan's ashes were picked up today by friends and family. Her ashes were scattered at the 11th Hour in the hollywood hills high above any sign of life. There between the city lights and the stars, one may look down upon the city of angels (mudders though we be, beach wood right the left) and reflect on her life and art, guerilla posters and all the rest.

Valerie,

Thank You for coming back & sharing more about your wonderful friend.
I was just reading the emails I exchanged with 11th a few years ago. She was one of the best Browncoasts.

Because of her we will keep flying......

Sorry to hear of her passing and thank you for the information.

I have her Inara trading card in print form and use it as an example of Nouveau Art for my Art History class, my students love it, comment on it all the time, try to duplicate it, she’ll be remembered.

When I think of Susan, I remember a woman who was always smiling, always friendly, always full of grace. She had an ethereal quality about her that showed up beautifully in her artwork.

Thank you so very much, Valerie, for sharing what happened the last few days. More than anything, I am reminded that 11th Hour Never Gave Up.

Thank you for sharing that with us, Valerie. It is good to know that she didn't suffer for long and that she had such good friends surrounding her right to the end. For those of us who are cat lovers, it's also good to know that Rocko will have a good home.

My condolences to you and her friends and family. I hope you are able to keep some form of her store open as her art deserves to be shared with newcomers to the 'verse.

thank you so much for the information, my heart goes out to all of 11th Hour's friends and family.

If there is anything we can do (speaking for myself but believing a lot of Browncoats feel as I do) to help please please let us know!

I would happily donate to keeping her online sites open
or donate to a charity in her name
or whatever would ease the pain of loss to all those who knew her and loved her best.

Thank you for letting us know, Valerie. I'm so very sad to hear about the passing of 11thHour. She touched so many people's lives with her art and her presence - both online and in person. I never got to meet her in person but we were friends back on the OB all those years ago, and she's one of those people who's gorgeousness just radiated from every post she wrote.

Jenski, d'you still remember sticking the stickers of her artwork up on the insides of toilet doors back in Sydney when we were there for the marketing screening? Happy days. She brought joy to us with her talent and her loveliness, and we'll never forget her.

Love you, 11th.

Thank you so much Valerie for notifying us and providing additional information.

Susan was much loved and we have suffered a great loss. My condolences to you and those who knew her best.

I was fortunate to have met her several times and she was dear to me. I am sorry I lost touch. She always seemed to pop up at the 11th Hour at many conventions and shindigs. She was generous to all and gave so much to our Browncoat Community. Browcoats are good at having your back. We are ready willing and able to help you in any way we can. Please let us know if you need anything at all.

Best wishes in sorting everything out.

Jeremy, that would be an awesome tribute. She was so quiet, so humble, yet a giant talent. I ordered one of her small buttons (Jessi puts 'flare' on the ceiling of her truck), then today, after watching Jessi and her friends perform the finale day of RENT, I saw that I had one of her larger buttons sitting next to other keepsakes on my shelf. Maybe I'm just old and sentimental and overly emotional, but knowing now that she'd been diagnosed years ago, so that when we met her she was 'unwell', yet putting out the most amazing work...just gets to me.

First Lux, then Odile, now 11th. Wow.

My prayers and good wishes go out to everyone hurting and mourning the loss. I think I will have Jessi introduce her friends to Done the Impossible. Good life lesson.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


Words can't express the loss the Browncoat community has suffered with 11th Hour's passing. She was a stalwart Browncoat who gave so much to try to keep our show in the air. She was always a welcoming soul here on the board to new people and an inspiration for all those that knew her.

She's out in the black now, flyin' free of all the woes of the mortal shell. Keep flyin' 11th Hour.

Could you please just make it stranger? Stranger. Odder. Could be weirder. More bizarre. How about uncanny?


I don't really know where to start.

11th was the first Browncoat I ever "met" here on FFF.net. She was welcoming and supported (my comparatively weak) efforts in the graphic works I did here. She was the inspiration for my first effort. Arguably, she's the reason I am where I am now...in school for Graphic Design and doing freelance graphic design works. Seems strange that I won't ever "see" her here again, only the footprints she's left us to follow in. She showed me what it meant to be a Browncoat before I even knew what one was. Simply put, she was an amazing woman, and she will be missed, though never forgotten.

From 10th to 11th, Stay shiny and Keep Flyin'.

You made the 'verse a better place, Susan...

This is so sad - cancer takes too many, too soon. Her posts here always stood out with her Catwoman avatar, a reminder of how long she had been a Browncoat, and her artwork was so distinctive. I'm just going through some of her old posts now, including the one where Universal threatened her with legal action:

Can't help but reminisce...

Susan was my introduction to the Browncoat society. When I first came to FFF.net I was excited to see there was a community, and I spent an entire day just lurking to see what was going on, which is how I found her posters. I was immediately inspired to do a wallpaper for my computer and I contacted her to ask her permission to use her images in a design of my own. After explaining the idea, she was all for it, and well, here it is:

http://beta.fireflyfans.net/bluesun.aspx?bid=1563

Thanks again, Susan, for selflessly supporting my efforts here, for welcoming me into a family I will always have, and for unknowingly changing my life forever :)

My utmost respect and condolences to the Tomb family, she was a light in our 'verse, and will always be. Thank you.

A very touching and beautiful memorial - thank you for sharing.
It's hard for me to think of Firefly without her art - hopefully, once you have some time, you'll be able to post how we can contribute (paypal, etc) to keeping her sites running for all Browncoats and for all the new fans.

Thank you for sharing those details with us. I know this must be completely overwhelming right now.

I am seconding what someone else has already said, if a tribute or a favorite charity is mentioned, I know the community would love to honor her by contributing to it.

She touched many of our lives, and it would be an honor to do so in her memory for others.

Hello all~

I am currently working with Valerie to setup a large fund raiser to honor the memory of 11th Hour.

Susan was kind enough to allow me to use some of her artwork for my own gorilla marketing campaign. Those that sent me shirts got them printed (Browncoat-ified as I like to say) free of charge. Them that wore the shirts were always stopped for inquiries. Those people have introduced so many more to the world of Firefly. I have printed hundreds and hundreds of shirts for people all over the world using some of her designs as well as my own.

We haven't gotten our TV show back or another movie but what we did find were amazing people like Susan.

Now, I would like to go back to the roots and do another even larger print run in Susan's honor.

More information will be to follow, in fact you all will probably be tired of hearing about it because I plan to spread the word far and wide. Right now November seems to be the month and Eugene Oregon the place.

We are the mighty ones,

Would this fundraiser in November maybe be on 11/11/11? (As WHEDONesquer NYPinTA pointed out to me, that date seems fitting for something in honor/memory of 11th Hour.)

Just a thought in passing, not, of course crucial. The important thing is the fundraiser in 11th's name, and it's a great idea. I do look forward to hearing more about it in the weeks to come - thanks for letting us know.

Damn. Just heard the sad news on Sending a Wave. 11th was such a treasure...I never met her and I never really posted on-line much anywhere, but I corresponded with her a bit, bought her stuff and used her guerrilla artwork everywhere. We made a lot of new browncoats.

Here's her last e-mail from '09. The joy in that woman always came shining through in her words. But that last line of hers has me crying now as i write this... :(

Howdy Roland,
I am honored that you recognized my design even without a hint... or a vowel... or a hint of a vowel. Very cool! It is exciting to have a t-shirt design out there that's all official and stuff, and a bit ironical considering the tussle that Universal's lawyers had with my Cafe Press shop a while back. Funny how situations can take a surprising turn after time has passed.

I appreciate that you check into my website to see any changes or updates, very nice to be remembered. Things have actually been rather quiet on my guerilla marketing and FF/S art websites. I've been very busy working on other projects, so the Firefly/Serenity sites have been quietly traveling in their orbits, but nothing much in the way of updates has happened in a while. The latest new FF/S fan art I added was a color depiction of River holding her axe and sword and standing in her Reaver slaying pose. But that's the last update of new art and it was earlier this year, I think. Even though my FF/S sites are quiet, I still keep them going. So many really great FF/S fansites of the past are gone, I have a whole bunch of bookmarks that go to "page not found" messages now... so sad! Keeping the websites going is part of keeping the 'Verse going, so I wish those sites were still there... refusing to give up!

Now that I'm working with QMx it's quite possible that we'll do more projects together, so that will help in getting some new art on the websites. I still have so many FF/S project ideas that I'd love to do, and having a way to do them officially makes it possible for the projects to be realized.

I'm so glad you are still enjoying the posters and cards, knowing that means a lot to me. All the Firefly/Serenity art I've created has been made with love for the 'Verse, and it's so cool to know the art connects with others who also love the 'Verse... and if the art is also drawing new folk to FF/S, then I'm a doubly happy Art Companion. ;-)

Thank you so much for your delightful message and words of congratulations... and for ordering one of my shirts, yay! I hope to be offering more official goodies in the near future!

Shiny days,

Susan/11th

P.S.
I scrolled down to read the previous emails... wow, it's like taking a time machine! The earliest one is almost 3 years old now, kind of surreal to go back and read about what was going on back then. So much was happening, and is happening, and is yet to happen. The story continues..."

I am hard-pressed to think of any Browncoat who made the words "Done The Impossible" more real and personal than 11th Hour; for I daresay she has done more for the 'Verse, with her pinky alone, than most Browncoats could accomplish in their lifetime using a full set of hands. And yet, day like this, first words that leapt to mind were that of Kaylee: "Sometimes a thing gets broke can't be fixed." :(

The 'Verse will continue to exist without her; 'Verses do that: moons and planets never halt their orbital spin, and stars never dim their light -- not even for a second. I often wish they would. We can, of course, stand still ourselves for a moment. And it does me good to see many folks do. It's moments like these that I'm proud to be a member of this Browncoat community.

From here on in we can sadly only reminisce about the many times she touched the 'Verse, in her equally many artful ways. Nevertheless, I'm glad I was here, to commemorate our finest Hour.

N.B. And a special thanks to my old friend FollowMal, who was kind and decent enough to inform me of this tragedy.

I just found out about this. I haven't been to this site in years, but like most of you, have always been aware of her presence and most certainly her art. I never communicated with her directly, but she was such a prominent figure it was impossible not to know of her and her work. A great talent that will be missed.

Really surprised this hasn't been posted here yet... details of her Tribute (I'm just spreading the signal check the site for details):

[quote}Not only was 11th Hour (aka Susan Renee Tomb) a kind and giving person who made innumerable friends and acquaintances throughout the Firefly 'verse, she was also able to span the gap of Firefly fandom and transition into a licensed artist with Universal Studios. 11th Hour was an amazing artist and is an icon for Firefly guerrilla marketing. She gave us all outstanding posters to revel in our fandom and a means to seek a little bit more Serenity. She was kind enough to allow the EugeneBrowncoats to print those posters on shirts in 2005. People from all over the world sent us shirts to Browncoat-ify with her guerrilla marketing posters.

Now that 11th Hour has passed, we would like to honor her by returning to the printing presses and printing more shirts from those original images. We are going to have an amazing shindig in her honor and raise funds to dedicate in her memory!


Browncoats are the shiniest folks in the 'verse

I always enjoyed 11th hour's art. Today I saw a tshirt design that reminded me of her style, and went looking for her website. I am saddened to hear of her passing, and extend all condolences to her friends and family.

I had to reregister since I've long since forgotten my old log in... but wanted to let the verse know she was missed.

I don't know if Valerie or anyone close to 11th Hour will get this...but is there anyone still managing her art? I'm inquiring for a CSTS organizer who'd like to get permission to use one of her creations.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
