Hey everyone, I have some unfortunate news to share. I just learned that Francisco Munguía Villalta, better known as @Munguia here on NG, has passed away.
Francisco joined NG in 2013 and has a celebrated history here. He showed up with his own signature art style and became prolific in the games space, with his Paintings Parody series (always a great source of medals) and more recent favorites like Straight Outta Pixels and Fun With Flags, for Pixel Day 2020.
The most rewarding part of following Francisco on NG was seeing his mural work in Costa Rica, such as the SOS Children Village Mura, Giant of the Rooftops in Cristo Rey and Children Rights mural at the PANI office for national child welfare. Be sure to take some time to read his news posts from over the years and play some of his games.
Francisco’s passing has come as a shock to the people of Costa Rica, where both the Ministry of Culture and Youth and the Municipality of San José have released statements mourning the country's loss. You can read more in this CRHoy article and find additional reporting in Nacion.
I’m gonna miss seeing Francisco here on NG. His legacy will always be a positive example for us to follow.
