Success didn’t seem to make Thomas happier. Cracks began to appear in his empire as his “art factories” came under scrutiny. The great financial collapse of 2008 shuttered many of his mall studios. He began to drink and developed a penchant for peeing in public. In fact, he was arrested at Disneyland for peeing on a statue of Winne the Pooh! His marriage exploded and a mistress appeared. On April the 6th, 2012, Good Friday, “The Painter of Light” went to “The Light”, with a belly full of booze and Valium. He was 54. Tomorrow: The Resurrection.
