It’s really so sad, his character designs were always so full of personality. I know some might have found them silly but they had a real charm about them. 49 is way too young Sad

I’ve always loved the character designs in these shows. May his soul rest in peace and all the best to his family.

It really hurts. Mr. Wyatt was involved in so many of my favorite cartoons growing up and had such a strong sense of design and fandom ties.

It injected a lot of anime design sense and screams while having its own distinctive style.

RIP Mr. Wyatt. Thank you for everything you have contributed as an artist and as a creator.

I first noticed his designs nearly two decades ago on Teen Titans Can He Find Peace.

I loved his character designs. Transformers Animated was my introduction to Transformers as a kid and Animated along with Teen Titans are two of my favorite shows from my childhood.

Rest in peace Derrick J. Wyatt, you will be missed.
