Calvin "Cman" Washington was struck by a drunken motorist while riding home from the local library in November and he left this world in early December.
You can find proof of that here among a few other places that list the accident.
Cman, Calvin, was a quite prolific and talented African American artist. He did buoyant, lively, and masculine erotic work. In many ways he was fearless. He ran a few blogs dedicated to his work and was the official artist for the Woofytales books.

I just found this out this morning and sadly I never would have known. Calvin is someone I befriended online. He was warm and affable and so free with himself and his creative vision that I was always inspired by him. He is the second person I've known to have been murdered by a drunk driver (the first was my beloved cousin). I don't know how to feel about this. I never would have known he'd died because of how the internet keeps us all apart. In fact, I'd been thinking about him the other day and wondering why he hadn't posted anything lately. My heart breaks over his loss. We needed people like him in the wold, and now he's gone.
Rest easy, Mr. Washington. You will be missed dearly.
